"I've been in the barbecue industry for 20 years! It was time I stepped from behind the curtain to go after my passion."
-Richard Thomas, Owner
QSammies Barbecue and Catering, LLC

One brief chat with QSammies owner, Richard Thomas, and you'll understand why he decided to follow his dream. When asked how he got started, there's definitely a rich history behind his answer.

 

A native of Dallas, TX, Richard turned an ordinary high school job into his entrepreneurship dreams! After working in the barbecue industry for 4 years and studying under the infamous Reginald Dorsey (owner of Red's Barbecue), Richard hung up his apron and tried the field of correctional law enforcement; all while still balancing private catering services on the side. After working in corrections for 13 years, Richard got serious and started selling meals to his co-workers.

 

The demand was strong and the feedback was remarkable; further re-igniting his passion for the barbecue industry. In July 2019, Richard retired from his blue collar job after 15 years of service and pursued his dreams full time. Since retiring, QSammies has become a premier go-to catering company providing on-the-go lunch services in the DFW metroplex. In December 2019, QSammies became a certified vendor in the state of Texas as a subsidiary of Aramark, where Richard and his team prepare and provide lunch to some of the most notable Fortune 500 companies in the Dallas area.
