Local Event Premier Host
Pork on a Fork — with its original location on Deer Valley Road, venues inside Talking Stick Arena and Gila River Area and catering and food truck outlets serving the greater metro area — is set to open its first East Valley location in Chandler at 1972 North Alma School Road this May. The restaurant will offer all of the same slow-smoked BBQ favorites that customers have come to expect as well as an expanded menu including additional entrée items, appetizers, desserts, and alcoholic beverages. Poised to serve the market in the COVID age, this location will offer both dine-in service and an express drive through so diners can bring high-quality, purposefully prepared BBQ home to enjoy.
Pork on a Fork BBQ is also now hiring for their new location! Interested applicants should apply online here: https://www.porkonafork.com/join-our-team Applicants must attach resume to be considered.
“We’re really excited to continue the expansion of our brand and move into the East Valley,” says Justin Erickson, co-owner of Pork on a Fork with business partner Wes Hansen. “This is an entirely new market for us and a big opportunity for us to grow. We can’t wait to welcome this new demographic of BBQ lovers.”
Embracing the heightened demand for quality take-out dining, Pork on a Fork’s new location takes their motto “cooked slow, served fast” to another level — serving deliciously slow-smoked BBQ in an express style. Rather than a traditional fast-food drive through system, Pork on a Fork’s drive through will feature personal ordering service with staff members readily available to answer questions and walk first-time guests through the menu. Guests that prefer to dine onsite can enjoy a hybrid of full service and quick-casual service which allows them to choose a table inside or on the patio, have a seat, and use their phones to scan menu and order. Staff members will offer wireless devices so guests can conveniently pay at their table.
In addition to classic Pork on a Fork items such as slow smoked pork or brisket by the pound, BBQ burritos, sandwiches and bowls, highlights of the newly expanded menu include cowboy nachos, brisket chili, loaded baked potato with BBQ meats, smoked turkey and even smoked bologna.
While East Valley diners anticipate this new location, BBQ lovers can get their fill of Pork on a Fork at its Deer Valley location as well as the food truck, which posts up at various locations valley wide (follow Pork on a Fork on Facebook and Instagram to track them down!). The food truck can also be booked for personal events and Pork on a Fork offers catering services such as individual meals for company employees.
