Chuck Wagon Texas BBQ Expands To South Huntsville!

Exciting news, Huntsville! After 10 years of success at its Madison location, Chuck Wagon Texas BBQ is set to open a second restaurant in South Huntsville at Redstone Ridge Shopping Center. The soft opening of the new location is tentatively scheduled for January 4, 2018.

The 3,200 square foot space off South Memorial Parkway will offer the eatery’s same signature menu while creating a unique dining experience for both lunch and dinner crowds.

Owner of Chuck Wagon, Stephen Holley, said the barbecue joint has had plans of expanding for years, but wanted to wait until the right time to introduce a second location.

“We are very excited to bring Chuck Wagon’s Texas-style barbecue to the South Huntsville community,” said Stephen. “Over the years, we have had a lot of requests to expand, and now is the perfect time to make it happen. We’ve spent nearly a decade perfecting the quality of our food, service, and overall experience. Our new location will allow us to share our crowd-pleasing menu with a new audience while making visits more convenient for our Huntsville-based clientele.”

The History of Chuck Wagon

“Our restaurant actually began in the 1970s under the name Barbecue Boutique in west Texas,” said Stephen. “My dad, Mike Holley, was working as a petroleum engineer out there at the time. He started cooking on the oil fields and really developed his skills. He always said that after those big guys smelled his food all day, it better taste good.”

Barbecue Boutique was a consistent hit with the engineers. But it wasn’t long before Mike’s career took him to the Rocket City.

“When we moved to Alabama, dad was in the military as a radar specialist,” he said. “We decided to try out our first Chuck Wagon location in Athens where we served food for two years. Then we moved to our current Madison location where we have been in business for nearly a decade.”

During its 10 years as a Madison-favorite, Chuck Wagon has served its signature spread of beef brisket, pulled pork, spicy sausage, pork ribs and chicken to countless local and out-of-town customers. Stephen said the restaurant’s success is due to its focus on creating an excellent product and memorable visit.

“Our style of barbecue has its roots in Texas,” said Stephen. “We work with an offset-style of cooking, versus smoking or grilling over coals. And we serve mostly beef rather than pork. Everything has a Midwest flair to it.”

In addition to its existing menu, Chuck Wagon in South Huntsville will also be introducing a few fried items. But Stephen said he’s most excited about the new jalapeño cornbread.

“Pair it with one of our brisket sandwiches and we guarantee you’ll be in barbecue heaven.”

A Rustic Western Look

Guests at the new location are in for a surprise when they come to dine at Chuck Wagon. The new space has been transformed into an “Old Town” of the West, complete with artwork and details that transport customers to a time of campfires, cattle ranchers, outlaws, and rodeos.

“When you visit, you will actually sit in our custom-built Old Town,” said Stephen. “Everything from the booths to the murals on our wall will be uniquely made.”

The name of the restaurant also has its roots in Western history.

“In the old cattle drives, the chuck wagon would travel a day ahead of the group,” he said. “They would have dinner ready when the ranchers caught up so they’d immediately be able to sit down and have a hot meal. The name fits us perfectly.”

A New Home in South Huntsville

“Right now, we cater to a heavier lunch crowd at our Madison location, and we will continue to do so,” said Stephen. “This additional spot at Redstone Ridge puts us near the arsenal gate, families, and more of our Huntsville customers. We think it will make us available to serve more lunch and dinner crowds.”

Richard Crunkleton, who handled leasing for Chuck Wagon, said the new location is a perfect addition to the South Huntsville shopping center.

“Chuck Wagon has a proven track record of excellence at its Madison location,” explained Richard. “This second restaurant will allow them to deliver their five-star product to a different market in the city. We’ve had a great time working with them on their expansion to Redstone Ridge.”

As for Stephen, he’s ready to serve up some Texas-style grub and can’t wait for the opening.

“Come try us out,” urged Stephen. “We will make sure you have a great experience and some delicious barbecue done right.”

New “Williamsburg Plaza” Development Coming To Madison!

Crunkleton Commercial Real Estate Group is proud to announce that a new three-unit development is coming to the corner of Nance Road and Highway 72 near the city of Madison!

The 8,200 square foot “Williamsburg Plaza” is set to begin construction in early 2018 and already has two confirmed tenants—Bank Independent and Aspen Dental.

“We’re very happy to share the news about this location with our customers, neighbors, and friends in Madison County and beyond,” says Macke Mauldin, President of Bank Independent. “We’ve listened to our customers who travel Highway 72 to work or shop in the area and who have asked us to open a sales office here. Our 28th office will bring Bank Independent’s convenient and truly personalized customer service to the Madison community.”

Wesley Crunkleton and Zac Buckley handle the leasing of the project and say the state-of-the-art bank office will be the perfect anchor.

“Williamsburg Plaza will be a great addition to one of Madison’s busiest retail corridors,” said Wesley. “The site’s accessibility and strong visibility make it an ideal location for Bank Independent to serve its clientele with quality customer service. Aspen Dental will also be joining the development, and we look forward to releasing more information on the leasing of this project as it becomes available.”

Although the branch will feature Bank Independent’s signature Colonial Williamsburg exterior, the interior will offer customers modern technology and conveniences, including a tech bar for tablet banking, a deposit ATM, and cash recyclers for more efficient and faster transactions.

The branch will provide the bank’s full range of deposit and lending services with universal bankers, sales officers, and representatives from the business banking and mortgage teams.

Stay tuned as we release the information on the third and final tenant to join Williamsburg Plaza!

A Very Happy Thanksgiving From Crunkleton!

With the holidays quickly approaching, we are reflecting on the many things we have to be thankful for this season. This year has been filled with exciting projects, new team additions, and much more.

Here are just a few of the reasons we are thankful:

The Addition Of New Businesses To Huntsville/Madison

Many new businesses have joined the Huntsville area this year. From first-to-Alabama eateries to clothing boutiques and medical offices, Huntsville’s growth has been impressive. We are always excited to work with incredible business owners and visionaries.

Restaurants like Wayback Burgers, Honest Coffee Roasters, and Frios joined the Huntsville scene this year (as well as many others), while Earth & Stone Wood Fired Pizza expanded to an additional location in Madison.

Downtown has seen a lot of growth, as well. Shops at The Avenue like Scout & Molly’s Boutique, Zoom Indoor Cycling, and Church Street Purveyor are now open and welcoming new clientele and guests.

And there’s even more to come! Very soon, the Rocket City will enjoy the grand openings of Oshi Poke Bowl & Sushi, Baby Bite Bake Shoppe, Soda Jerk, and J. Kennedy Clothing Company. These businesses span across the city, and we can’t wait for them to open their doors.

Welcoming New Team Members

This year, Crunkleton welcomed three new team members and celebrated the promotion of Lauren Plott to Property Manager.

Haley Clemons joined the team as the new Marketing Coordinator, Shelby Smith brought her talents to the Office Manager position, and Alex Oden became Crunkleton’s newest Office Broker.

 Announcing New Developments

This year’s major announcement was STOVEHOUSE. As we revive the historic Martin Stove building on Governors Drive, we will continue to update you on what businesses are coming to the project. We have received a lot of interest, and we can’t wait to share it all with you soon!

Enjoying Team Outings

Whether it’s team dinners, enjoying a day outdoors or volunteering together, we are thankful that we have had time outside the office to enjoy each other’s company.

We hope that this Thanksgiving brings you and your loved ones many blessings.

Happy Thanksgiving from Crunkleton!
