What an AWESOME journey the Kain and Gregor families have been on with the conception and realization of the business known to most as simply… ToKen!
We’re not sure what we expected when it all started, but it sure wasn’t this! We had NO idea just how much food left a restaurant, NO idea just how much fun we’d have working with the public and the people of Mapleton, NO clue how special the relationships we’d form with customers would become. Like anything else, all isn’t perfect and rosy, but we’ve had and are still having the time of our lives here. We ABSOLUTELY love the business we’ve created with your support and patience as we’ve learned our trade.
It’s important that we mention Mayor Jim Swanson, our city clerk Patty Woodruff and Councilman Jerry Etherington. They, along with the remainder of the city council and the Mapleton EDA have advocated for us from day one. There is NO way possible that our dream could have ever been realized without their help and support.
That said, we have in fact learned a LOT about the restaurant/hospitality business, and feel it best to make a change in the direction of ToKen BBQ. This change will allow us to concentrate our efforts in the areas that will help assure our long term business viability and success.
After many months of consideration, we will focus our efforts on breakfast/lunch and catering. Starting Tuesday Oct. 1, restaurant will be open Monday- Friday, 7AM-1PM.
If you really want to make a good impression you want to have the best.
We can make your event, wedding, reunion, or graduation a home run.
Imagine the smell of Smokin' ToKen B.B.Q slowly moving across your party
making your guests twitch with anticipation. Hmmm Good! We can smoke on
site, or you can pick it up, whatever you like. You might ask if we can
handle your party because it's going to be big.
