Bacon Bros. is COMING SOON TO SUGAR LAND, TX!
Houston Entrepreneur Travis Cook has had a lifelong love affair with food and hospitality. From hosting iron-chef parties at his family’s house in high school to taking classes at the Culinary Institute of America in St. Helena, California, he has always had a passion for quality food and taking care of people. Deciding his passion would be more of a hobby, he set out for a career in finance. Cook’s work regularly brought him to Greenville, SC where he quickly fell in love with Bacon Brothers. Cook became a Bacon Brothers regular, despite living halfway across the country in Texas. He met Bacon Brothers’ Director of Operations Jason Callaway when he celebrated his birthday at the restaurant in 2015. After getting to know one another and discussing Bacon Brothers’ plans for expansion, Cook realized that his passion for food and hospitality didn’t have to be just a hobby. His next trip to Greenville was for a meeting with the rest of the Bacon Brothers team to discuss bringing the concept to Texas. The group decided that the straightforward, made-from-scratch, meat focused restaurant would be a great fit for the Lone Star State. After almost a year of site-searching, the group found the perfect spot in Sugar Land, Texas.
The last missing piece was finding the Chef de Cuisine. Cook met Houston Chef Joseph Zerwas by happenstance at an auto repair shop when they were both having some car trouble. They got to talking and discovered their shared love of bacon. Cook quickly realized that Zerwas was the perfect chef to bring the culinary side of Bacon Brothers to Texas. Cook and Zerwas loaded up the truck and drove to South Carolina where they spent two months learning everything there is to know about Bacon Brothers from Executive Chef Anthony Gray and Director of Operations Jason Callaway. Cook and Zerwas soaked up the Bacon Brothers’ values: serving only the highest quality, farm fresh food and ingredients in an engaging, warm environment with superior service. The whole Bacon Brothers team is excited to bring these values and this experience to Sugar Land, Texas.
The og: GREENVILLE, SOUTH CAROLINa
Bacon Bros. Public House features a straightforward, made-from-scratch menu. The East Greenville restaurant offers delicious, quality food at an incredible value. A cure room with a viewing window is located in an area of the dining room so guests can see what Chef Anthony Gray is curing. The decor is warm and rustic with recycled pallet wood throughout the dining room, a nice compliment to Chef Gray’s accessible fare and is fitting with the restaurant’s recycled, local first theme. Simply put, Bacon Bros. is a best bet for a fun, relaxed dining experience with friends and family or to meet pals after work for small bites. The restaurant also offers a great selection of craft beers, cocktails and dynamic wine options.
