FAMILY AS THE CENTER
The Carver family has always been at the center of the business. Jeff’s daughter Annmarie even designed the logo! Jeff’s son Jeffrey Jr. is a professional flat track racer known by his fans as The Wizard. His interest in racing as a child was a big factor in the decision to open Carver’s. Jeff Carver still takes the smoker to the tracks when he goes to watch his son race.
Now, Carver’s BBQ is a household name in the racing world. Fans from across the country go out of their way to visit the restaurant while traveling.
During a typical morning preparing for the day, Carver and his mother, Betty Carver-Healey, his sister, Robin Carver, and Crystal Roper can all be found pulling hundreds of pounds of pork shoulder by hand.
