Pecos Pit BBQ, with a 30 year track record of success in the Seattle area signed a licensing agreement with Gerry Kingen, owner of Salty’s Seafood Grills, more than a year ago. In that time plans to bring Pecos to a wider audience have been in the works. He believes the Pecos concept with some menu refinements has “Greater potential than it is realizing.” Kingen said, “With respectful enhancements it could go local, regional, national, and even global. With a different approach to franchising it becomes an opportunity for others. We think the product ‘hunts’ and has broad based universal appeal.”
In an exclusive interview with the West Seattle Herald Kingen disclosed that among the first outlets will be one built on the site of the former Ben Hoshi Teriyaki restaurant at the corner of 35th and Fauntleroy Way SW.
The site, which has been closed since January of last year, will be remodeled and be the West Seattle home for the regionally famous Pecos Pit formula. “We’re excited about West Seattle,” he said.
