The first Mission BBQ opened Sept. 11, 2011, in Glen Burnie. Now there are five locations for the patriotic-themed restaurant, and by the end of this year, there will be 15 restaurants in four states, the company says. "We don't believe there's anything more American than barbecue," says Mission BBQ co-owner Bill Kraus, a former Under Armour executive. "We don't think there's anybody more American than those that volunteer and serve. We're just so proud to feed them and serve them."
