OLD CAROLINA BARBECUE: In 2006, long-time friends, Brian Bailey and Tim Hug (founders of Ichor Restaurant
Group), opened their first Old Carolina Barbecue Company restaurant 60 miles south of Cleveland, in Massillon Ohio.
Inspired by the roadside shacks found in the Carolinas, Brian and Tim had a vision to bring original barbecue, authentic
taste and Southern hospitality to Northern markets lacking such establishments. Old Carolina Barbecue offers hickory-smoked
signature meats and scratch-made sides. The Sauce Bar features four original barbecue sauces that represent the authentic
flavor profiles of the Carolinas, plus a flavorful Screaming' Beaver Hot Sauce with its own rabid fan base. They also provide
table service for its guests, a rarity in the fast casual genre. Listen to the show to learn more. Click the play button
