Great Food For a Great Community
How We Got Started
Stan Krolick grew up on a dairy farm in Arcade before becoming a welder and construction worker. A construction accident in 1990 left him with a badly injured back, but opened the door to a future in barbeque. He founded Krolick’s BBQ as a way of helping raise funds for neighbors in his ravaged community after Arcade was devastated by flood waters in the late 90’s.
Nowadays, we’ve grown to over 15 employees. Folks from all over bring their family and friends for a picnic at our roadside stand, and we offer catering for parties and events. Of course, fundraising is still one of the most important parts of our business, helping churches, schools, teams, and organizations raise money.
