The Reyes family of restaurant fame is a one huge clan – but there is only one Reyes who founded, owns and operates the Reyes Barbecue brand name upon which a chain of restaurants has sprung. This person is Mr Francisco “Frank” Reyes. Like his cousins and siblings, teenage Frank worked in the restaurant his grandmother founded either as a checker or an accounting clerk. It was during these times that he noticed that the most patronized product in the restaurant was barbecue. This led him to seriously thinking about putting up a business for himself in the future totally focused on barbecue. This became his dream.
