Scotts BBQ is a new family restaurant that opened April 8,2006 at 637-A Northland Blvd. in Forest Park, Ohio in the North Point Plaza. Even though this restaurant is a new endeavor for the Scott Family, BBQ, good homemade food and delicious sauce has been in the Scott family for many generations.
Our great grandfather, Pa Pa Braden ran a BBQ pit and sold BBQ for many years. He passed his legacy onto his daughter, our grandmother, Gladys Lewis,who operated a BBQ pit as well. The legacy was further passed onto our mother, Janet Scott, who made the delicious BBQ sauce as a well-prepared delicious food for her family. About seven years ago, this legacy was passed onto Robert Scott, known as "BigBob", who began making this delicious BBQ sauce for his co-workers. The sauce went over so well that he got together with his youngest brother, Larry Scott, to have the sauce manufactured.
Our sauce ended up in some Krogers', Lo Bills', Biggs' and IGA food stores. In order to promote the sauce, Bob, Larry and some other family members and friends began doing demonstrations by handing out samples inside some of the stores. A George Foreman Grill was used with little smokies and chicken breasts dipped in the sauce for consumers to taste.
Robert decided to take it to the next level and let the consumers taste the sauce on real barbeque straight off the BBQ grill. He started with two barrel BBQ grills serving on the sidewalk of Woodlawn Krogers stores during the weekends. We began moving to the different Krogers stores every weekend to better promote the sauce. This became so popular with our consumers that it was necessary to increase from two grills to four grills. We then moved to the parking lots of Krogers. A mobile food unit was purchased to enable us to better sell side items like macaroni & cheese, green beans, baked beans,7-up cake and peach cobbleR.
