Owner Matt Sale has this to say about his company”
“Tito’s BBQ is a back yard
styled Barbeque made with homemade rubs and sauces.
I named the business for my dog Tito. Barbeque became a passion of mine in the last few years, and
I love watching my friends and family enjoy a home cooked
A few things I’ve learned, is to make sure to do
as much preparation the night before that you can. I have found
Preparation is a key to success when you’re dealing with anything,
My homemade sauces take some time to make, alongside with my
custom rubs, so knocking anything out the night before helps
run a good smoke the next day, and ensures me to be able
to focus on the grill. BBQ at weddings is a
huge crowd pleasure and a little goes along way!
Having a team of friends and family has also made it much easier
on the day of the grill with extra helping
hands and encouragement.”

“I founded Winding Roads in 2019, and have
been growing my small business every since.
I have really cherished the new relationships I’ve built ,

during this journey! I love being able to use my passion
in connecting with all kinds of people.
I began this journey years ago in small journals and art pads and have always
wanted to create something fun and authentic.

into. Practicing is a huge tip I follow and suggest.

comfortable in, while learning the tools of the art is key.
Each writing tool to surface is different, and learning
about what products do what is also a must. It’s all
trial and error, so you just have to stick with the
Calligraphy is a patient art, and very mindful. I have found great peace with my anxiety, and believe
calligraphy is for everyone. I do my best to bring the best energy and love to each piece, and to connect with
everyone I meet through it, so I say that’s a huge win!
If you’re looking for a piece to add to your home or wedding, I would say.”
