CHRISTOPHER W. BELK
Founder / Owner
Born and raised in the South, Christopher Belk has always had a dream to open a unique BBQ restaurant. Traveling across the country working with restaurants in his previous job has led Belk to create a new concept, Saucehouse BBQ. Saucehouse offers a fast casual experience where the customer can customize their order while walking down a serving line. Being able to try multiple types of BBQ and sauces reflecting different preferences popular across the country is what makes Saucehouse unique. As stated, “we want this to be a fun concept for our guests where they can try different types of sauces and styles of BBQ each time they visit.” A long time Bulldawg and University of Georgia graduate, Belk couldn’t be happier to have started the first Saucehouse in his favorite town Athens, GA.
Our small town Alabama boy and University of Alabama graduate is a life long chef whose hospitality career spans more than a decade as a chef, waiter, and bartender including his overseas travels to New Zealand for 2 years. Charlie brings a little bit of world culture with country charm to Saucehouse. He loves golf, Alabama football, and is quoted as saying “ROLL TIDE.” Please be nice to him, GO DAWGS!
