WICHITA — Oklahoma Boy's BBQ owner Terry Keeton thinks there are too many barbecue restaurants in El Dorado, so he's moving his business to Augusta.
Keeton says he thinks it'll be a better location with less competition.
The Oklahoma native hopes to open his restaurant at 114 E. 7th St. in Augusta in the next week or two. He says it'll seat about 35 diners.
For now, he is selling food out of a mobile concession stand in front of the restaurant.
"We've got our wagon kind of temporarily set up."
About Carrie Rengers
Carrie Rengers joined The Eagle's Business team in 2002 despite her inability to even balance a checkbook. Fortunately for her, and readers, her Have You Heard? blog is about business scoops and contains lots of news but almost no math.
A Michigan native, Carrie’s father was quite tragically transferred to Little Rock, Ark., in the middle of her sophomore year of high school. To make matters worse, her parents put her in a girls school. She recovered, though, and went on to enjoy being an English major at Hendrix College (the Harvard of the Ozarks, don’t you know). She worked for the weekly Arkansas Business and the statewide daily Arkansas Democrat-Gazette before moving to Wichita to be with her favorite writer and cook, husband Joe Stumpe.
