Barbecue Eatery to Close Two Sites
Not available online
TitleBarbecue Eatery to Close Two Sites
AbstractKC Masterpiece Barbecue and Grill has decided to close its Country Club Plaza and St. Louis restaurants and concentrate on its "flagship" restaurant at 10985 Metcalf in Overland Park. "Rich Davis, a former child psychiatrist, developed the KC Masterpiece barbecue sauces and began selling them in 1978. Sales were more than $4 million by the end of 1985, and he soon sold rights to the sauce to a division of Clorox Co., but kept the rights to open restaurants under the KC Masterpiece name. The sauce is now sold in supermarkets nationwide".
NotesThe Plaza restaurant opened in a 6,000-square-foot spot at 4747 Wyandotte St. in 1992. It was the fourth location for the Kansas City company, but at the time Davis didn't consider it a chain.
