MISSION BBQ in Mentor, OH hosts Military Appreciation Night

MISSION BBQ is opening its 93rd location in Mentor, OH on Monday, February 17, 2020. This location will be the fourth in Ohio for the restaurant known for its traditional American BBQ with a hefty side of patriotism.

The Mentor opening is very personal and emotional for co-founder Steve Newton, born and raised in Columbus. He couldn’t be any prouder than to be bringing a fourth MISSION BBQ home to the Buckeye State. MISSION BBQ continues to expand throughout the eastern half of the United States with a targeted goal of 150 restaurants by the end of 2021.

As is tradition with the opening of every MISSION BBQ, the Mentor location will host charity nights throughout the week leading up to the Grand Opening. An open to the public Military Appreciation Night will be held on Friday, February 14 from 6 to 9 with all sales donated to the USO of Northern Ohio.  During this event only, the first 100 people to purchase an American Hero Cup will receive Free BBQ for a Year. Private Party events will also be held to support the local Fire and Police Charities in the Mentor Community.

All Grand Opening events will be held at: MISSION BBQ, 7787 Reynolds Rd, Mentor, OH 44060
