|The McBride family has been in the food business for four generations. Woody
McBride founded the business in 1932 and became the largest independent concessionaire at
the Dixie Classic and the North Carolina State Fair in Raleigh. His daughter Bettie joined
him in the business and added the North Carolina Mountain State Fair as well as the
festival route. Betties daughter and son in law; Bess & Bob Brinkley came aboard
over a decade ago. Bess expanded corporate event catering and Bob completely renovated the
equipment into a modern and well maintained fleet of concessions.
McBride Concessions is proud of its history as a family owned business treating customers
like family. Great food and consistency have helped us build a repeat customer base that
has folks telling us my family has been eating with McBrides at the fair since
I was a kid! We cant think of a higher compliment!!!
Our operation now includes Cotton Candy Trailers; Italian and Polish Sausage
Stands, Bar-B-Que Ribs, Chicken and Pulled Pork Cafeterias with table seating, French Fry
and Spiral Fry Stands, Blooming Onions, Fresh Lemonade, and our newest items Giant Turkey
Legs and Roasted Corn on the Cob! We still carry a variety of homemade cobblers and banana
pudding for dessert in honor or our founder! Some things are just too good to give up!
