Jamie is an Operations Specialist and Rescue Swimmer in the United States Navy. His unit, US Navy EOD (Explosive Ordnance Disposal) Mobile Unit Three, stationed out of San Diego, was deployed to southern Afghanistan in support of Operation Enduring Freedom. Jamie became a fan on our Facebook page and wrote on our wall that he grew up in Smithfield, NC and that “eating at Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q is always a MANDATORY event when I’m at home on leave!”. That small, personal connection grew into something much bigger for us over the next few months. With the support of our stores and the local community, Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q’s Freedom Week was a great success! Freedom Week encouraged Smithfield’s diners to contribute items to be shipped to our troops serving overseas, where we had “adopted” a unit. Just in time for the holidays, we are happy to announce that Operations Specialist, Jamie Franks, has returned safely home and even joined us for a special lunch at one of our Garner, NC locations on Thursday, Dec. 17th. Upon meeting, Jamie presented us with a wonderful surprise. The gift was a paddle that he made himself while deployed. Hours of work went into creating such a unique and thoughtful gift and we truly are humbled. We appreciate all that Jamie Franks, US Navy EOD Mobile Unit Three, and all the men and women serving our country do for us. We are honored to support such great people.
Our locations will be open from 9 a.m. to 5 p.m. on Christmas Eve and closed on Christmas Day. Happy Holidays!

Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q is happy to announce that they have continued, and extended, their community relations and support with yet another non-profit partnership from the communities in which they serve. The family-oriented restaurant group will be providing SAFEchild, a Raleigh-NC based organization, with a meal for their PLUS program graduation ceremonies, as well as, a monthly meal for the Crianza Con Carino program.
Both of these programs continue the goals of SAFEchild in working with parents, families, and caregivers to create nurturing environments for children, free from abuse and neglect. The Parents Learning, Understanding, Sharing (PLUS) program uses children’s literature to encourage cooperation and helps families develop good communication skills and manage stress and anger during a 12-week program. The Crianza Con Carino program is a 12 to 24-week family education program that blends child-rearing information with social supports to strengthen Spanish-speaking families living in Wake County.
“A 14% reduction to this year’s budget affected SAFEchild’s ability to provide the types of nutritious meals we like to for the families in our group programs. Thanks to the generosity of community partners like Smithfield’s Chicken ’N Bar-B-Q, we are able to offer our families the opportunity to sit down together for a good meal before their group session begins”, said Marjorie Menestres, Executive Director at SAFEchild.
“SAFEchild is thrilled to have been chosen as a community partner by Smithfield Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q. SAFEchild has been committed to eliminating child abuse in Wake County by helping adults and children create nurturing environments free from abuse and neglect since 1992”, added Menestres.
“Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q is a family-owned company that embraces the importance and value of family in our communities,” says Richard Averitte, Marketing Director for Smithfield’s Chicken ‘N Bar-B-Q. “The programs that SAFEchild has created in our area are helping to improve the lives of so many. We are truly honored to have the opportunity to help support them and the families they are serving.”
