Bertram McCray Jr.
Who We Are
If you would have told Founder, Bertram McCray Jr. 10 years ago that he would be selling barbeque for a living, he probably would have chuckled a bit. He didn’t see it coming, but in December of 2005 when it did, he wasted no time seeking after ways to make something out of what could potentially be a great opportunity. Determined to provide for his family, Bert set up a pit with his cousin three times a week near his residence in Miami Florida and sold ribs until they sold out. As he spent more time on the grill, he began to master the art and perfection was in the works. Shortly thereafter, chicken was on the menu. A deep passion for grilling and satisfying the cravings of customers led Bert to Atlanta, where he felt he could gain more exposure, so he set up shop on Metropolitan Parkway. A few months later, Bert purchased a small building in the same lot where he set up every day. By this time, he had created and perfected what we have all come to love… that mustard based barbecue sauce! Now the Mustard Seed BBQ has grown to be a favorite for locals in Miami and Atlanta. The word of mouth references created a large clientele. Bert’s goal is not only to increase customer base, but also to increase customer satisfaction and strive for perfection in an effort to build a quality foundation and continue to satisfy everyone’s barbecue cravings.
