Our Business

Hank Daddy's Barbecue's first ever service was Labour Day 2009, for the Maple Cruisers Fall Final in Vaughan. We cooked all night on our Jack's Old South Smoker and quickly sold out.

Shortly after, we bought our first food trailer and for a decade we took our rig to numerous fairs, festivals and catered events.

We expanded into the concession business and still serve our Dang Good Q at trade shows and consumer shows at the International Centre in Mississauga. 

In 2015, we bought our food truck which made catering and touring much easier. 

Our food truck can be available for your private event or corporate function.

Our Restaurant

October 31st, 2016,  Hank Daddy's BBQ opened its Flagship Restaurant in Vaughan, Ontario.
