Every local community has a story, a history, and a unique personality that cannot be replicated. This is often thanks to specialized, small-scale businesses, like this one, which contribute to a neighborhood’s distinctive character and promote a thriving ecosystem in their community. Small, independent businesses offer diverse products and services, fostering economic resilience by removing the local economy’s dependence on a single industry. When you buy local, you build local, and deepen your connection to your own community.
As a result, patronizing a local business like this is an act of community building. Check out their website to learn more about the local experience you can discover today.

When the yellow truck rolls up to the curb, if you weren't hungry before, you're about to be. Kip'z BBQ has arrived, ready to tempt with tender, juicy ribs, chopped brisket and beef, and chicken. But there's no need to sit around waiting hopefully for the yellow truck to make an appearance—Kip'z BBQ also has a stationary location. Stop by for lunch combos, where the barbecue continues to be the star of the show but also gets help from sides such as baked beans and potato salad—and the grand finale of the popular banana pudding.
