Meet Our Tenants: Smokey Mo’s BBQ
One of the best parts of the commercial real estate field is working with and getting to know amazing business owners. We love to highlight the awesome people who run these great businesses! Recently I spoke with Kim and Roger Harris, who run Smokey Mo’s in Shaenfield Ranch (San Antonio) and Oak Run Plaza (New Braunfels). Below, Kim Harris shares the story of their business and experience working with Dominion Advisory Group!
Q: Can you tell me a bit about your business?
Kim: Smokey Mo’s BBQ is a Regional Texas BBQ Chain, focused primarily in Central Texas. We are dedicated to serving exceptional Bar-B-Que in a family-friendly environment. We offer real pit-smoked BBQ, smoked throughout the day. From the traditional favorites of brisket, turkey, and sausage, to tender ribs to our chop simmered in our signature barbeque sauce, we’ve got a lot of something for everyone. And don’t forget the sides, desserts and sweet tea!
Smokey Mo’s first opened in Cedar Park in 2000, and Smokey Mo’s first opened in the San Antonio region in 2007. And we continue to grow, thanks to our loyal customers!
Q: What motivated you to start your business?
Kim: We love food! Roger, one of the co-owners, has known Morris, the Founder of Smokey Mo’s BBQ, for over 20 years. When he decided he wanted to open his own restaurant, he knew Morris’s commitment to excellent product and hospitality, would be a great fit for us. So, we joined the Smokey Mo’s family. And the rest, as they say, is history.
Q: How long have you been leasing business space from Dominion Advisory Group?
Kim: We opened our first store in a Dominion Advisory Group property in November 2016, and our second store on one of their properties in September 2017.
Q: What is your favorite part about the location of your lease space?
Kim: Our customers! We agree with Dominion on the fundamentals of a lease space – locations, ease of access, growth potential. But what we really love about our spaces are the customers we get. We are surrounded by really great people, who enjoy our food and have a great attitude.
Q: What is your favorite part about working with Dominion?
Kim: They have a high level of expectation for their tenants and of themselves. They are efficient, fair and they keep their properties well.
Issues are a normal part of a business, whether it be in the construction phase or in the regular operations of a property or business. The Dominion Team has always been receptive to hearing these issues and working with us to solve any problems.
