Who loves to share her talents with those around her as well as online on multiple platforms.
When Rachel & Bryan aren’t creating, they love spending time with their family and friends, including their 2 girls, and their 3 dogs. They love hopping in the car for a spontaneous road trip to somewhere new, meeting new people, and enjoying great food. They have made it their life's passion to see the US and hopefully soon the world! Rachel & Bryan believe in great customer service and have a great love for entrepreneurship. They believe in giving back to other local businesses and allow them to flourish in this amazing shop! It’s nearly impossible for a small business to flourish without a strong foundation of service. With this in mind, they look forward to creating great memories, a strong community, & awesome experiences!

Randy's BBQ Expands Statesville Hours
Randy's BBQ has decided to consolidate both locations to one location in Statesville. This allows us to extend hours at our Statesville location. By weighing the advantages of each location with consideration of parking & drive-thru (with the lack of ability to add a drive-thru in Troutman), as well as the traffic congestion & potential road improvements/rerouting that may be needed very soon in Troutman, (without blame to anyone just natural progression) Statesville is the most feasible for Randy’s BBQ.
It is with a heavy heart we have come to a very hard but necessary decision. We are so blessed and grateful to our employees’ dedication & hard work. We have been able to hire & retain almost a full staff but still struggle at times to cover some of the expected & normal staffing issues (sickness & vacations etc).
We will be closing our Troutman location as of April 1st at 8pm. We will be open at both locations this week Wednesday-Saturday 11 AM to 8 PM. We are planning to expand the hours in Statesville in a week or so: We will be announcing those hours soon on Facebook.

What is a Destination Escape Room? "The goal is to excite enthusiasts and create enthusiasts for escape room entertainment. We are a bit out of the way but well worth the trip. Since so many of our customers travel over 40 miles to play, we make sure we work hard to provide a value added experience for your entertainment."
