COVID-19 and other factors
It might not end
Joe Morley’s BBQ has served at many ground-breaking ceremonies. Most recently, the Salt Lake Airport construction team of over 2,100 workers.
His son Brent Morley has been running the day to day operations for the past 15 years. He hopes a decision can be made to keep the family business going into the next generation.
“With so much history and so many loyal customers, I’d really like to be able to keep things going in some form or fashion. My dad’s business has become our family identity, my kids have been working here now, and it’s something we have all really loved doing. Maybe after things calm down a little or once I find the right opportunity, we can get back open again. I hate to see it go,” Brent said.
A big piece of BBQ history
Joe Morley’s BBQ claims the title of Utah’s original and longest running BBQ restaurant.
The restaurant will be open for their final days Thursday, August 12th through Saturday, August 14th from 11 a.m. to 9 p.m.
