The Project

Funds raised in this offering will be used to build out the new location for the restaurant. Our current location was built in 1963 and it is a challenge to do business there. It’s around 2000 square feet. Our new location is almost 5000 square feet with outdoor seating and a dog walk. We will have a separate to-go area. The new location will allow us to become more efficient. In the kitchen we currently operate we can only set up 6 plates at time; in the new location we could set twice as many plates and can better serve our guests.

The following table describes the use of funds in order of priority.




Past, Present, and Future

My mom taught me how to cook. My culinary career began one Sunday, when I was 12 years old: I asked my mom if she would let me cook Sunday dinner, and she said yes. I made fried chicken, blackeye peas, collards greens, and new potatoes for our family of six. I made everyone a plate and waited. They all turned and said, it is good, very good! That made me feel so good and that is the same feeling i get when someone eats here and they say how much they enjoy the food.

Pit Boss is a total scratch kitchen, in business for 12 years. We do not have microwaves in our kitchen. We only use fresh meats for our BBQ. Our dry rub is a combination of seasoning we came up with. We season all meats with our dry rub. Our brisket is black angus beef. We trim and season with a salt and black pepper, rub slowly, and smoke until tender. The recipes for some of our sides were passed down from our parents. We built our business on three principals: great food, great service, and a clean restaurant. We were voted by Atlanta Magazine as one of the 50 best BBQ restaurants in Georgia. We are in the business of taking care of people, from our vendors to our employees to our guests.

Within the first year after the raise, we expect to have the new location completed, with landscaping, outdoor seating, and a retail sales plan implemented.

In five years we expect to have two more locations, and in 10 years we expect to have the new building paid for.

Your ongoing responsibilities from investing are very limited. Over the life of the loan, you will receive a yearly 1099-INT, which is a simple tax document similar to what you receive for most savings accounts.*Individual payments may vary slightly based on rounding. Potential repayments include principal and interest; they do not include the one-time fee which is assessed when you make your investment. These amounts are calculated as a hybrid interest-only + amortizing loan, which means that there is a specified interest-only period followed by a an amortization period. There are no prepayment penalties and Pit Boss Inc may pay down their loan early, which may impact your earnings potential. Please note: returns are not guaranteed and investors could lose some or all of their investment.

Pit Boss Inc pays as agreed. You will receive quarterly payments directly into your bank account. In the event of a default, you will be contacted by the administrative agent to manage the collections process on the investors' behalf.
