Rib King expands southern offerings in Spartanburg

July 2, 2017 by  

Carolina Rib King owner, Solomon Williams, recently purchased an industrial building 17,500 square feet in size on a lot of 3.2 acres in Spartanburg to increase the size of his home base.

Williams said that he has been focusing on concession stands at big rib fests but the new facility will enable him to have a community commissary and events center with kitchen space available for

vendors, caterers, and food trucks. The location of the new facility is not as close to the city as he had hoped but it was more affordable.

Over the summer, Williams will be tearing down walls in the building and rewiring it for the expanded kitchen and large appliances. Working with him on the renovation will be five full-time culinary employees, several part-time ones, and many friends. He plans to open the new space by the end of this year or early next year.

Williams may host special events at the new facility so those in the community can have a taste of his award-winning mac and cheese, barbecue ribs and chicken, collard greens, and sausage, among others.

The use of flyers may be one way that Williams can spread the word throughout the area about his food and his other services such as corporate and backyard cookouts, tailgate parties, birthdays, and family reunions.
