Faces of Oklahoma 2018


The Face of Barbecue


RibCrib has been “Smokin’ the Good Stuff” on-site, at every location, every day since it was founded in 1992. And we’ve always been committed to giving back to Tulsa. As RibCrib has grown, we have taken the community service focus from that first location into more than 60 stores in six states. The annual RibCrib Golf Invitational raised $110,000 for local Tulsa charities in 2017, and the company donated $198,000 of free meals to veterans and active duty personnel on Veteran’s Day, something we have done every year for the last five years. This kind of community support is carried on by our leadership teams in every market we serve.

Citizenship is in our sauce, but the most important ingredient is RibCrib’s people – our employees and customers. “We have so many Cribbers that have been here for 10, 20, all the way up to 26 years. We are proud that our culture fosters that kind of career satisfaction,” says Marc Chastain, RibCrib president. “Thank you, Oklahoma and all of our loyal guests and team members – we couldn’t have done it without you.”
