“Mike Wilson, you created a hell of a barbecue joint,” Jennifer Wilson said when accepting a Retailer of the Year award from the Alabama Retail Association on behalf of the Wilson family.
Mike and Jennifer Wilson opened the first Saw’s barbecue restaurant in 2009 in Homewood. “Mike manned the store, while I handled the books, finances and ‘office’ work,” said Jennifer, who at the time was a full-time teacher. “Over time, we grew the Saw’s brand through partnering with others to open Saw’s Soul Kitchen in Avondale and Saw’s Juke Joint in Crestline.” A franchise company oversees three other Saw’s in Hoover, Leeds and Southside.
While the rapid expansion eventually led to the end of their marriage, “the business continued to thrive,” Jennifer said.
