We had the good fortune of connecting with Trevor sales and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi Trevor, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Having fun with it! The second you start to think about things too hard, the creativity gets sucked out of you.. We try to keep it fun, keep it creative and I think that’s what people love about our brand. We’re not your typical BBQ joint, and we intend to keep it that way.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
Starting Brix Barbecue was really by accident.. I always loved to cook and especially loved barbecue. My mom is one of the most amazing chefs I’ve ever been around, so she obviously taught me the ropes. I took that love for food and when I moved to Texas and discovered what real Barbecue is all about, I fell in love. I fell in love with the craft, the process, everything about it. A hobby became a passion and a passion became a business venture. As a small startup, there are so many hurdles we’ve gone through, but we’ve stuck to our core values of serving food that we love to bring people together. We’ve stuck to the path and it’s starting to pay off. Perseverance is key.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
Some of my favorite spots/things to do in Funkytown are: •Grab a drink in the Amber Room (Wishbone & Flynt’s sexy speakeasy) •Eat at the literal hole in the wall, authentic Italian joint Nonna Tata. (Don’t forget to bring your own wine!) •Eat some Brisket Elote at Panther City BBQ. •Eat a Funkytown Hot Chicken sandwich at Brix Barbecue. •Go on down to the Stockyards and be a true Texan for a day. 🤠
Shoutout is all about shouting out others who you feel deserve additional recognition and exposure. Who would you like to shoutout?
I want to give a big shoutout to the Fort Worth aka Funkytown community. The only way we are able to do what we do is because of the love and support we get from our Fort Worth friends and family.
