Eating at Daddy Pete's is a unique experience, which is why it is no surprise that Daddy Pete’s BBQ is a businesses with storybook beginnings. After winning a food competition in 2012, Cory and Tarra Davis, owners of Daddy Pete’s BBQ, were flooded with praise and earnest requests asking them to share their homemade BBQ sauce. This sea of positive responses soon lead Cory and Tarra to start their own business in which everybody could try their BBQ sauce. It began small only selling to family and friends, but word spreads quickly when delicious food is the topic of conversation. Soon the Davis’ were ready to acquire a food truck. Their mission? Providing southern, slow-smoked meats consisting of locally sourced ingredients which are prepared fresh and daily onboard the commercial kitchen and rotisserie smoker.
