It’s not us, it’s them

In light of the announcement that Smithfield Foods Inc. has been purchased by Hong Kong-based company Shuanghui there has been confusion on the Twitterverse we would like to clear up. Smithfield Foods, Inc. is the world's largest pork producer and processor headquartered in Smithfield, Virginia that runs facilities in 26 U.S. states. Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q is a restaurant group that serves fried chicken and Eastern-North-Carolina-style Bar-B-Q, made fresh daily from family recipes and served in a family-friendly atmosphere. Smithfield's Chicken 'N Bar-B-Q has over 30 locations in North Carolina (and growing). Two different companies, no affiliation. Our next location will be in Greensboro with no plans for a Guangzhou location. Although we do have plans for expansion, they are not yet on a global scale and our menu will stay the same, just like it has for the last 40 years. We'll be sure to keep you posted on our plans and as always, we appreciate your business and grateful to serve.
