LAWRENCEBURG, Tenn.— Local entrepreneurs Tripp & Jeanea Weigel have announced their plans to establish a permanent location for Hinie’s BBQ as part of their acquisition of Venue North. The development, located at 2782 US 43 N in northern Lawrenceburg, will also house The Venue North Catering Company.
Inspired by and named for the late Louis “Hinie” Weigel, Hinie’s BBQ launched their signature food trailer in 2012. Tripp and his team have been using his father’s recipe to serve customers at community events, weddings, and other special occasions across the region ever since. Hinie’s BBQ will offer a menu with different styles of barbecue made fresh daily in a family-friendly atmosphere.
“Every time a customer enters our restaurant, they will feel like they’re going to a backyard barbecue,” explained Tripp Weigel, owner. “My family is grateful for the support we’ve received over the years, and we are excited to give back to the community by investing in a permanent location and growing two new businesses in the process.”
Starting in October, nearly 11,000 square feet of the existing building will be remodeled to house a large interior dining space, private meeting space, offices, and a full-scale catering kitchen to serve customers throughout the region and provide a new line of service to Venue North. Venue North, an 8,600 square-foot private event venue, is being managed by Mrs. Kati Weigel and is now available to book weddings, corporate events, dinner parties, and conferences.
“Along with all of Hinie’s favorites, The Venue North Catering Company will have an expanded menu to serve you with any catering need. We are excited to provide customers and corporate clients with a one-stop resource for events right here in Lawrence County,” explained Venue North manager, Kati Weigel.
Construction for Hinie’s BBQ and The Venue North Catering Company will be complete in January 2022.
