PHILADELPHIA, PA, August 28, 2013 /24-7PressRelease/
is one Charleston restaurant that was founded through the very grassroots efforts that many barbecue providers in the south participate in to get hungry patrons to try new and exciting dishes. In 2001, Russ Cornette and Matt Gamble popularized their barbecue concept by participating in many competitions throughout the southern region of the United States--a practice that many restaurant owners in this field are quite familiar with. According to a recent article
from The State, many BBQ venues in South Carolina start small and often gain credence through offering unique dishes and tirelessly working to impress community diners.
However, the article notes that many of these restaurants are now looking to expand their reach, particularly in terms of attracting tourists to the region. The trouble is, according to Queology, many of those who are not familiar with local options may not know where to find the best barbecue when visiting popular destinations in South Carolina.
Fortunately, The State reveals, "Now, state tourism officials want to help them drum up more business, spending $1.2 million to promote the state's "barbecue trail" in an effort to help hundreds of thousands of travelers and tourists find places like Queology on their way to the state's beaches or college football games. To pay for that marketing blitz, S.C. lawmakers have given the state Department of Parks, Recreation and Tourism more than $20 million in new money over the past two years, most of that money going to pay for advertising in Myrtle Beach, Hilton Head, Columbia, Charleston and Greenville. But beginning this fall, the department will embark on a $3.5 million advertising campaign designed to showcase the state's more rural areas, including the $1.2 million campaign, scheduled to begin later this month, highlighting the state's barbecue culture."
As a popular restaurant in one of the most visited tourist regions in the country, Queology responds in a recent press statement, "It is very encouraging that South Carolina is celebrating its historic barbecue culture and we are very proud to be a part of this growing movement. We hope that as the 'barbecue trail' expands, not only will more people visit Charleston and beyond to support local business, but residents will also take more pride in celebrating this time-honored dining tradition."
Queology remains a distinctive venue for those visiting or living near Charleston who want to experience a diverse selection of sweet, savory and smoky barbecue dishes.
Located in the coastal city of Charleston, South Carolina, Queology
remains a top favorite among adventurous diners looking for exceptional lowcountry barbeque. Established by founding members Russ and Matt, this restaurant was built on their efforts to popularize the brand by participating in several cooking competitions since 2001 throughout the southeast. Today, serving up more than 25 years of experience, the Queology team is equipped to serve moist and tender meat that continues to win over diner taste buds on a regular basis. Prized among both visitors and locals, this barbecue restaurant delivers a wide range of unforgettable dishes. Simply put, this Market St. venue is a staple for all those that love to eat meat in the way it was meant to be served--sweet, savory and smoky.
