When we think of foods that define Southern Cuisine, I think most of us can easily add barbeque to the top of our list! Of course, each region varies slightly with their own style- from a more classic "sweet & spicy" to a more tangy "Carolina style"- but, either way it's a pretty delicious crowd-pleaser! If you're planning an event (weddings included!) where you will need to feed a large group of people, you should definitely consider hiring Wholly Smokin' to feed your guests!
Wholly Smokin' began in 2012 when Bill Travis made the bold move to turn his hobby and love for food into a BBQ restaurant in Florence, SC. Two years later, Bill and his wife, Jackie, relocated the business to downtown Florence, where it's been thriving ever since! At the time, Jackie also owned another storefront, Let Them Eat Cake. In an effort to support Bill's dream, Jackie closed her bakery, but took with her all the knowledge she gained on weddings and applied it to the catering side of their business.
Sadly, Bill passed away in 2017. However, his legacy is carried on by Jackie, along with their two children, Sarah and Andrew, who continue to serve family recipes, both in the restaurant and through their catering services.
Jackie and her amazing staff proudly serve award-winning pulled-pork BBQ, ribs, and brisket, along with handcrafted sides, salads, hot & cold hors d'oeuvres, and desserts. They offer a variety of catering menus to fit various events and budgets which makes them the perfect option for not only weddings, but all the bridal parties or rehearsal dinner leading up to your big day!
Jackie is more than happy to provide consultations, along with tastings, to ensure couples decide on their perfect wedding day menu! They are more than willing to cater to any special dietary needs and/or food allergies, and offer several gluten free options! Wholly Smokin' also offers additional services that can be added on to customizable packages, such as dessert bars and alcohol bars. They even offer setup & breakdown services to make your special day a little easier!
When my husband and I first moved to Florence, Wholly Smokin' was the first restaurant we tried and we were instantly hooked! If you've had had the pleasure of tasting anything on their menu, I'm pretty sure you'd feel the same way! Any time our family comes in town to visit, we make sure they don't return home before enjoying a meal here! I've heard it said that "No recipe is complete until love is added" and I can confidently say that you can taste the "love" in EVERY bite!
