PHOENIX — Pork on a Fork is bringing its slow-smoked BBQ favorites to the East Valley with a new location opening in Chandler in May.

The restaurant is hiring for the new location located at 1972 N. Alma School Road, according to a press release. Interested applicants can submit a resume online.

Pork on a Fork, along with its original location on Deer Valley Road in north Phoenix, serves up slow-smoked pork or brisket by the pound, BBQ burritos, sandwiches and bowls.

An expanded menu will feature cowboy nachos, brisket chili, a loaded baked potato with BBQ meats, smoked turkey and smoked bologna. Appetizers, desserts and alcoholic beverages are also available.

People will be able to dine-in or use an express drive-thru at the new restaurant, according to the release, along with a hybrid of full service and quick-casual service allowing the option of using a phone to look at the menu and order.

“We’re really excited to continue the expansion of our brand and move into the East Valley,” Justin Erickson, co-owner of Pork on a Fork, said in the release.

“This is an entirely new market for us and a big opportunity for us to grow. We can’t wait to welcome this new demographic of BBQ lovers.”

Erickson founded the restaurant with Wes Hansen, both growing up on farms in Nebraska before moving to Arizona in 2001.

The two opened their first restaurant in 2010, have a food truck and can also be found inside Phoenix Suns Arena and Gila River Arena, according to the release.
