RAC - Random Acts of Commerce

What is Random Acts of Commerce?

Random Acts of Commerce (RAC) is a new program designed to highlight Yukon Chamber of Commerce businesses.  Each month, we will randomly draw one business from our lovely jar of members.  The lucky winner will be featured on our social media, e-newsletter, and in the Yukon Review.  They will also be the subject of a quick video interview with our CEO, Kinlee Farris.  Any Chamber of Commerce member in good standing is eligible to win, but only once.  RAC will help fulfill our vision of being your connection to businesses, community, and success, and is yet another way to “Rock the Return on your Membership Investment”!

 

 


 

APRIL 2017 RANDOM ACTS OF COMMERCE WINNER – RIB CRIB

The Chamber’s April winner for Random Acts of Commerce is Rib Crib.  In 1992, Bret Chandler started the first Rib Crib in Tulsa, Oklahoma, with nothing but a smoker, a shack and a recipe for mouthwatering barbecue. The shack was a retro-fitted old house, and the menu only offered five meat options and two side options. As it turns out, the small menu plus Rib Crib's signature hickory wood-smoked flavor was enough to keep the customers coming back. They grew over the next five years, expanding to 60 locations across seven states while spreading a culture of quality barbecue. 

Mike Ferguson is Rib Crib’s Chief Pitmaster here in Yukon.  He moved to Oklahoma from California and needed to find a job quickly.  Rib Crib was just down the street and must have seen his hidden affinity for barbeque because they hired him immediately.  He ended up loving his job and the company so much he decided to stay and make a career of it.  Mike has been with Rib Crib over three years now.

The Yukon Rib Crib has proven its reputation for excellence at the annual Rib Crib Shootout BBQ Smoking Competition.  Their team has taken home four 1st place trophies in the past two years, and Mike is understandably very proud of his team.  They take their barbeque very seriously and pride themselves on delivering the best, championship quality barbeque for their guests to enjoy. 

Mike is also very proud to work in Yukon.  “I love the general hospitality and generous behavior of the community as well as how the community always comes together to have fun at local events.”  In his spare time, Mike enjoys spending time with his family here in Oklahoma, whom he missed while living in California.  He also loves both watching and playing sports.  Football is his greatest passion, and he is looking forward to the upcoming football season to begin in the fall.  Rib Crib has been and will continue to be a very active supporter of the Yukon Millers Football Program.

Ribfest is a great special offered by Rib Crib here in Yukon.  For the entire month of May, guests can enjoy all-you-can-eat ribs and sides, every day, all day.  A new menu is currently being developed at their corporate headquarters, so be watching for that in the near future. 

Rib Crib is located at 1750 Garth Brooks Blvd., Yukon, OK.  Phone:  405-354-2828.  Hours of Operation:  11 am – 10 pm, 7 days a week.   www.ribcrib.com
