Back when Collin and Kyla were filling hundreds of barbecue sauce bottles by hand in their kitchen, they had two goals in mind. They wanted to deliver a delicious barbecue sauce using simple ingredients and then find a way to use this business to give back. With these two goals at the forefront, WheelyQ Barbecue was born.
Collin was born with a rare genetic disease called Spinal Muscular Atrophy (SMA). Over his lifetime, Collin’s muscles have weakened to where he uses a power wheelchair to get around and relies on his wife, Kyla, for help with a lot of his daily activities. In 2013, Collin’s condition started affecting his ability to drive and he was forced to quit his full time job. Instead of just giving up, Collin took his love for barbecue and turned it into a small family business. With this business, Collin and Kyla wanted to raise awareness for SMA and also donate a portion of the profits from each bottle sold to research into finding a cure for this horrible disease.
Today, WheelyQ Barbecue is manufacturing bottles of their Original Recipe Barbecue Sauce by the thousands and have introduced a Barbecue Rub and Salt, Pepper & Garlic Seasoning.
Collin and Kyla hope you enjoy WheelyQ and Thank You for your support.
