I love when our meetings exceed my expectations. The firm night hosted by MaidPro was more than I imagined. I'm happy you had the opportunity to meet my friend and mentor, Greg Ford. I always enjoy hearing all the good things Greg and MaidPro are doing for the children and orphanages in Cambodia and Belize. He wanted to make a difference with his company, and he has. I would encourage you to contact Diana or Maria at MaidPro if you are looking for a maid service.

In 1992, Bret Chandler purchased an old house at 1601 S. Harvard Ave. in Tulsa, OK. Bret was known for his backyard BBQ skills and wanted to share his BBQ with his fellow Tulsans. He converted the house to a restaurant and Rib Crib was born! There weren’t many luxuries (including air-conditioning), but that didn’t keep Rib Crib fans away!
Rib Crib’s popularity grew and the second Rib Crib opened in Broken Arrow, OK 19 months later. More restaurants followed and today there are over 60 Rib Cribs in seven states - with many more in the pipeline. Primarily casual dining, Rib Crib has ventured into the fast-casual and the quick-serve markets to maintain its market share amidst a rapidly changing demographic of BBQ fans.
Rib Crib continues to evolve and uses its competition BBQ team –The Rib Crib PigMen - to develop and test new flavor profiles and cooking techniques at KCBS sanctioned BBQ competitions across the United States. Those flavors and techniques are often implemented in Rib Cribs everywhere. The succulent, hickory-smoked meats served in Rib Crib restaurants are truly award-winning, competition BBQ.
