About

Our background... 

We are Air Force(AF) through and through. Greg Lyles retired from the AF this spring after 20+ years of service. Chandler Lyles completed his 4 year enlistment this past May. Tucker Lyles is currently on an Air Force ROTC scholarship with the University of Kentucky. After school he will pursue an AF career and rejoin the family business after his tour is complete. 

Our Story...

Jennifer Lyles is the lifeblood of our mobile BBQ operation. She is the genius behind all of these dishes: 

Jalapeno Poppers: Pimento Cheese Stuffed Jalapenos Wrapped in Bacon and Smoked

Country Egg Roll: Stuffed with Pulled pork, Mac n' Cheese, and 2 Fresh Pickles and Deep Fried to Perfection

 She got her start in cooking like many of you. Her mother taught her everything. Do you know how some people can just put that little extra something on a recipe to make it special? Jennifer learned that in her mother's kitchen. Growing up Jennifer always fed all of Tucker and Chandler's friends. That feeling of family continued on for years. Now with an empty nest Greg and Jennifer decided to start a BBQ catering company with their son Chandler. 

Lyles BBQ Company (LBC) was founded in April of 2014. Their start was slow but their growth was not. At the first Food Truck event they pulled up to their spot with 2 small SUV's and a Corolla and unloaded everything necessary to serve the best BBQ in Lexington.

That day was successful and so was the next. They grew slowly and added more equipment and even a trailer to tow things along the way. 

The Rewards...

The business has grown from the humble beginnings. Now the family the started on their own needs help. By backing this campaign you will support a Veteran Owned and Kentucky Proud company. You will also receive amazing awards:

 When we reach our goal we will be purchasing a food truck through Sunline Trailers LLC in Cincinnati. This truck will have a Statewide Permit for Kentucky. That means that we can basically set up and serve the Lexington community anywhere anytime. The truck also means that we are mobile and can support multiple festivals around the state.

Risks and challenges

I like to look at this section as the opportunity section.

For instance there could be a delay in the building of the actual truck because we can't find the correct truck to buy in the beginning. This challenge is a positive because it means that we get the right truck for us and that we can avoid future breakdowns.

I would like to avoid the "opportunity" of having to find a new truck right after we outfit this one.
