Bloomington, IL – Crave Hot Dogs & BBQ is taking over the BBQ and Hot Dog sector one state at a time. This past week, Crave announced their newest franchisee in Bloomington, Illinois! They have plans on opening this upcoming winter in 2022, and plan to have multiple units throughout the state.
Crave Hot Dogs & BBQ was established in 2018, with 35 units sold and 5 trucks on the road. Crave has food trucks as well as brick and mortar units. The brand has been noted as one of the fastest growing franchises in the country two years in a row. They pride themselves in having a menu that suits everyone – ranging from all beef hot dogs grilled to perfection, to the mouthwatering BBQ sandwiches and meals. The BBQ here does not compare, with fresh and delicious pulled pork, pulled chicken, and smoked brisket. In the restaurants, Crave features a self-serve beer wall, with 18-48 local crafts on tap, as well as mixed drinks in select locations. This creates a fun atmosphere, leaving the customers with full stomachs, and smiles on their faces.
Crave also has a warm family dynamic, with kids’ meals, kids eat free on Wednesdays, and in select stores there are modern, yet cozy, outdoor patios with tons of fun games! Be sure to come by for your favorite sports game as well; watching on one of their many TVs is too much fun.
