MODERN COMFORT FOOD
We're putting Midwest Barbecue on the map. Our unique spin on traditional favorites is inspired by the places that invented real BBQ.
Flyby is about taking traditional backyard fare to a higher level and sharing that flavor journey with everyone we meet.
Our food is easy, fresh, and friendly - just like the Midwest where it was born.
It's BBQ elevated. We call it Flyover Food.
Help People Feel Happy and Fullfilled
We believe full stomachs can sometimes be the best way to full hearts.
We love making our midwestern style of BBQ and sharing our higher sense of purpose with everyone we meet. (meat?)
Anyways, at Flyby, things are always looking up…
For our guests it means authentic favorites, made right and full of modern personality -elevating experiences that fill customers up, making them happier leaving our restaurants.
For our team, a passion for sharing delicious, inspired food, and a family culture full of positivity -elevating experiences filled with opportunity, making employees happier coming to our restaurants.
It all started with a dream
David Butcher, our 21-year-old founder, first wrote the idea for Flyby BBQ down in 2015 on a napkin in his Ohio State University dorm hallway.
The concept was simple: create a fun and hip new fast-casual restaurant that reflected the backyard BBQ's he cherished with family and friends while challenging stereotypes of BBQ restaurants past.
It was time for a facelift. He couldn't find anywhere to get good BBQ - especially the way he wanted: real, fresh, easy, and customizable. Nothing was relevant. Nothing was exciting. Thus, Flyby BBQ was born.
The name is a combination of a dedication to creating an innovative + convenient BBQ restaurant as well as a homage to the history of flight in Dayton, OH.
In 2016, David won multiple business plan competitions and started the business selling sauces and hosting pop-up dinners. By 2017, he brought on more help and dived into the food truck scene with a splash. The rest was history...
Today, Flyby BBQ is known for its delicious food (5-star average Facebook review), family-like hospitality, employee atmosphere, and for pushing the envelope of what BBQ can be.
We can't wait to meet you and for you to join us on our journey. Thank you for choosing Flyby!
