Starnes Barbecue means a lot of things to a lot of people in the town of Paducah. Starnes is a truly unique brand, because their business model revolves not around the growth of the business, but the strength of the human connection that makes their brand strong! The value of the Starnes name is not in the quality of a logo or the price of the food. It’s about the stories and the memories in which Starnes Barbecue is ingrained. Do you have a Starnes memory?


Heine Brothers is a continually growing brand in Louisville. Not only are they renowned for the quality of their organic and fair trade coffee, but they are known as a generous member of their community as well. Heine Brothers contribute to helpful programs for local coffee farmers and are involved with Kentuckians for the Commonwealth to help the fight against mountaintop-removal mining.
