Virginia’s BBQ est. 2007
A Daughter’s Story
BORN~N~RAISED in VA BEACH, Angela was inspired in 2007 to start her own company, she was told she needed a big idea.
So HER BIG IDEA?
To ASK HER DAD FOR HIS INFAMOUS SECRET BBQ RECIPE…
AND THE REST IS BBQ HISTORY!
After a move to Chicago in 1998, she was introduced to the business world and became inspired to start her own business.
Fast forward to June 2014, ‘a pinch yourself kind of seven-year
overnight success story happened’ wheras ROWDYDOW earned the
preferred supplier status with Sodexo.
From there, ROWDYDOW wasted no time leveraging its new found
‘street cred’ to spread its wings with more and larger customers.
We’re proud to have been chosen by the US AirForce as their
preferred supplier, and help feed many hungry Army, Navy
and Marines serving around the world!
Other big name customers we’ve provided delicious BBQ
to for their menus include: Lifetime Fitness, Regal Cinemas,
Schlotsky’s, Tropical Smoothie, Sysco, DOT Foods, USFoods,
We even went global making our way down to every Costco
Mexico’s food court! And many hotels in the Bahamas!
All of this hustle paid off because by 2018 ROWDYDOW grew
exponentially by more than 269% landing the #1701 spot on the
coveted INC. Magazine 5000 list.
For Over a DECADE…
ROWDYDOW’s been having fun selling more than
2,000,00 pounds of BBQ
to Chefs around the country, into Mexico, the Bahamas
we’re ready to pivot and bring ROWDYDOW
FROM OUR SMOKERS TO YOUR KITCHEN!
Angela knew she needed a one of a kind name for this infamous BBQ.
Armed with a hand written recipe in hand, she got fun and creative.
DID YOU KNOW: ROWDYDOW is A Real Word?!
It sure is, and it’s one word…
Angela put the word ‘fun’ into Thesaurus.com and ‘rowdydow’ popped up as a synonym.
ROWDYDOW is one word and is a real word
that means starting a commotion,
making a noise,
and that’s exactly what we’re doing in the BBQ lovin’ world!
