Dreamland Bar-B-Q planning 10-year anniversary celebration in Montgomery

Dreamland Bar-B-Q is a staple here in Alabama – they’ve got locations across the Yellowhammer State! Dreamland Montgomery announced in a press release Thursday they’re planning on celebrating 10 years of business in just a couple months. Here’s how you can participate in the festivities.

The celebration is slated for April 9-12 at Dreamland Bar-B-Q in downtown Montgomery. There’ll be gift cards and merchandise given away throughout the three-day event, meaning you can walk away with some cool swag; you can also expect some free food to be making its way around the restaurant…

Dreamland moved from its location on the Atlanta Highway back in 2007, bringing with them nearly 80 percent of the employees who had been working in that space. Managing Partner Bob Parker wants customers to come celebrate with familiar faces, the likes of which have been serving Montgomery for years.

“Every manager here at some point started out as cook or server,” Parker said. “It’s the people who work here that made us successful.”

He said his average customer has been visiting Dreamland for more than five years. His employees have a total of 224 years of experience within the brand between them; among the restaurant’s top 10 employees, there’s a combined 120 years of experience.

Of course, Parker cites the chain’s brand when talking about his franchise’s success.

“I don’t have to educate you about what Dreamland is,” Parker said. “You’ve heard of it. You’ve been to one. It’s part of the culture in this state.”

And while we all lament the 2017 departure of Railyard Brewing, you can grab a taste of this awesome brewery’s creations when April rolls around.

“Dreamland does great without the brewery,” Parker said, “but the brewery needs Dreamland. It’s a good combination.”

The attached brewery offers 13 craft beers, including 5 transplanted Railyard taps.
