Justin Kinder—Kinder’s Barbecue

Justin Kinder’s grandfather, John Kinder, opened his first meat market in the East Bay. Seventy years later, Justin is conutining the legacy. Now a successful business with
15 locations throughout California and Nevada, Kinder’s is a barbecue-lover’s dream. The marinated ball tip sandwich is the mainstay, and the Kinder’s burger comes highly recommended. The business has evolved since its humble start in 1946—the
restaurants are now fast-casual spots that pay homage to John’s first butcher shop, and their famous barbecue sauces, marinades, and rubs are sold in grocery stores and specialty food shops across the country. And what is the secret to their sauce? Justin, the third generation CEO, says, “We are very specific about the quality of our ingredi
ents. But, the secret is still a secret.”
