In the same way this sauce helped strengthen my own community, Broad Shoulders BBQ is committed to giving back. A portion of the proceeds from every jar of Broad Shoulders BBQ will be reinvested in local youth programs. As Broad Shoulders BBQ grows, so will its involvement in the community!
This season we are deepening our connection with the community. We are partnering with the Boys and Girls Club for a one-of-a-kind summer job program. A select group of highly motivated and very well qualified teens will work along side our market managers at our booths at the farmers markets this season. They will gain valuable real-life skills including public speaking, sales and marketing, money management, inventory management, and time management. These teenagers went through an interview process as well as an in-depth training session (and of course BBQ sauce taste testing!) in order to best serve our customers.
On September 23, 2016 we made our first donation back to the community. We are proud to partner with the Boys & Girls Clubs of Chicago, donating sauce and funds valuing over 3.5% of our quarterly revenue. As our business grows, so will our contribution to the community.
