Evelyn Mae's BBQ future Buchanan home

BUCHANAN, Mich. --Odds are you've sampled the BBQ offerings that Anton and Ariel Lockett's Evelyn Mae's BBQ serve, with their increasing demand and popularity, their trajectory poses them for continued growth in Buchanan and all of Southwest Michigan.

From opening Evelyn Mae's BBQ as a catering only company in November 2019, after unexpected life events, to expanding their business to operating out of the food truck in the summer of 2021, their food truck goes to events across Southwest Michigan; with their announcement of their physical restaurant Fifteen-2 Twelve, Wheatberry Restaurant & Tavern in Buchanan.

Arthur Havlicek, Southwest Michigan Regional Chamber President & CEO says, "Witnessing first-hand the success that Anton and Ariel have built with Evelyn Mae's, we are excited to cheer them on as they continue to invest and build their business and brand in Southwest Michigan, specifically Buchanan. We look forward to joining the Buchanan Chamber, the Lockett's and their entire team in celebrating their official opening at a later date.

Guests will find strictly BBQ offerings when the restaurant opens in December, with plans to expand their menu as they build and hire their kitchen team, which includes a head chef.
