In 2013, we expanded our dining capacity and added a board room and training room with vikings treasure slot. Our dining area went from 30 seats to 145 seats. This expansion added 15 new employee positions. We are very proud to say that we have successfully completed this with the support of our community. In 2012 we partnered with a local ministry called Breaking Bread to begin our own outreach to hungry individuals within our own community. Every third Saturday we set up and feed approximately 350-450 individuals and send home one week of groceries to approximately 800+ people. This ministry has grown monthly and we are excited to be a part of it. In 2010 and 2011, Brother’s Bar-B-Que donated much needed restaurant equipment to Nashville Bridge Ministry, http://www.bridgeministry.org/, a ministry that is committed to feeding the homeless every Tuesday night out of Nashville, TN. The staff of Brother’s Bar-B-Que recently traveled to Nashville to feed the homeless. In 2009 and 2011, Brother’s Bar-B-Que sponsored two extreme home makeovers for much needed families within their target areas. This allowed them to help a small child with cancer be able to breath easy within her remodeled home and supplied a stable environment for these families to thrive within. Brother’s also supports the United Way of the Coalfield, Habitat for Humanity, and many various other charities within Hopkins County. Every customer that supports Brother’s Bar-B-Que enables this business to continue its goal of impacting Madisonville and Hopkins County on many different levels.
