Although not technically in the H&H area, Benny’s was an old standby before they moved out of Stratford Hills. Turns out the move hasn’t gone exactly as planned so Benny’s is looking for a little help. The following was posted to their Facebook Page.
Dear Friends and fans of Benny’s BBQ,
The recent slow down in the economy (contrary to what the government is telling us) has affected small business like Benny’s BBQ dramatically. For months I have lead the charge for our customers and local community to rally around small business like Benny’s BBQ and now I am asking for our customers and fans to rally around Benny’s BBQ itself to keep our doors open through these most difficult of times in our local community.The super hot spring and summer kept most people dining at home. Let’s face it, when it is hot out most of us just want a be inside the house with AC, a light meal and an ice cold glass of tea or favorite brew. The constant negative attack ads from the presidential candidates can put anyone in a bad mood and make them worry more about their financial future and our economy.While we maintain our mission to provide our customers with outstanding products and services at reasonable prices we very much struggling to meet our sales expectations to pay our bills. We implore you to come visit Benny’s BBQ and rally around us to keep Benny’s BBQ from becoming part of a growing number of business that have recently closed in and around Richmond.
We have done everything we can think of to spread the word about our location, including offering FREE entertainment and extended hours on the weekends to promote night life in Bon Air. This week we are saying thanks to our customers with $2.00 mince pork BBQ sandwiches (while supplies last).
It is our hope that we bring in some new customers that may not have had the chance to try the wonderful products we offer at Benny’s and for those customers that we have lost touch with over the years the opportunity to give us another try and bring back some great memories, see some of their long time staff members and catch up on each other’s lives. That is the best part of our day!
We LOVE our community and our customers and fully understand that you have your own set of circumstances that you have to deal with on a day to day basis. Please, don’t let another great family style restaurant fall victim to the chain store take over war.
Here is our entertainment schedule for this week
Wednesday Night ~ Jazz ~ 6:30 till 8:30
Thursday Night ~ Blues ~ 6:30 till 8:30
Friday Night ~ Classic Rock ~ 9pm till….
Saturday Night ~ Karaoke ~ 9pm till…
Sincerely and respectfully,
Small Business Owner Benny’s BBQ
