We honestly believe there’s no other place like MISSION BBQ for Great Food Served to Great People. And perhaps the most one-of-a-kind location has got to be in Downtown Annapolis, a few blocks from the U.S. Naval Academy, just a quick stroll to the City Docks, in what many consider America’s Sailing Capital.We couldn’t be more proud of this patriotic Community. Or of how welcome we were made to feel from Day One. Midshipmen and Ensigns stop in daily, often alongside a Commanding Officer. Veterans feel at home, bringing their families and tales of Plebe days gone by. Loyal Customers support our many fundraising efforts, stepping up to help vital causes like the 100 Club, aiding the families of fallen Hometown Heroes with $4500 in donations. Through their generosity, we’ve been able to help provide financial assistance, fund scholarships, purchase safety equipment and more.
That’s not to mention other charitable efforts we’ve been privileged to be part of this past year. Like the Recovering Warrior Sailing Regatta, helping Veterans with physical, mental and emotional therapy for injuries and illness. Or Wreaths Across America, laying wreaths on the headstones of our fallen heroes at the Academy. During Armed Forces Week, we were honored to serve free meals to EVERY branch of the military (with an outstanding turnout from the Navy, of course). And on extra special days when Our National Anthem is performed LIVE at noon, it seems as if the whole city stands at attention. We all rise together.
One other factor that makes us feel unique among all the great MISSION BBQs: SeaBrisket, expanding our reach and delivery to local waters. We were humbled to Serve the Police and Firefighters who kept everyone safe during the Chesapeake Bay Swim earlier this month. And we’ll remain so every day forward, proudly serving all on land and sea.
