Small Business Shoutout: Moe's Original BBQ

  • We're profiling a different small business every day on Making it in America
  • Moe's Original Bar B Que started in a trailer in Colorado, and the company now operates 21 restaurants in 5 states

The co-founders of Moe's Original Bar B Que took their dream of living in the Rockies -- and of good BBQ -- and turned it into a smoking success! This year on Making it in America, we're committed to getting the word out about small businesses like this one, because they really have become the backbone of the American economy.

The small business movement is lead by people like Mike Fernandez -- the man behind the meat at Moe's Original Bar B Que! Mike and his business partners had a dream to work for themselves, so after they finished college in Alabama, they worked their way west and eventually opened their first Moe's Original Bar B Que in a trailer on the side of the road in Colorado! Now the company operates 21 restaurants in five different states! Check it out on facebook to find one near you!

We loved this story so much, that we asked Mike to stop by and give Vinnie the scoop on how they made it happen and how they're now Making it in America!
