Mission BBQ first opened its doors on September 11, 2011, on the tenth anniversary of the day that changed the world forever. Founders Bill Kraus and Steve Newton opened the restaurant with a mission to give back to local community and American heroes, who protect, serve and save.

On May 17 the restaurant will also present a check of more than $150,000 to the Wounded Warrior Project as a result of proceeds raised from selling specialty American Heroes Cups at all locations. Whenever a customer buys the American Heroes Cup, Mission BBQ will donate $2 to injured veterans who chose to defend our country. Customers keep the specialty cups as a memento.

Each Mission BBQ location supports and donates proceeds to the local police, fire, and first responder charities in each of their communities, in addition to numerous military charities, including Wounded Warrior Project, USO, Toys for Tots, and the Honor Flight Network. Every day, at exactly 12 noon, the entire restaurant halts to honor our country by saluting the flag, standing at attention and singing our National Anthem.
