Fast-Service BBQ Opening Soon in Downtown Kalamazoo!


Downtown Kalamazoo welcomes Kelvin & Co., a fast-service BBQ restaurant opening soon!

Mark Nieuwenhuis, born and raised in Kalamazoo, is opening Kelvin & Co., located at  232 E Michigan Ave, previously Main Street Cafe. Kelvin & Co. will offer fresh meat smoked daily, handcrafted sides made from scratch, and delicious sauces! Their sides include variations of mac-n-cheese (yum), a variety of vegetables, plus more.

Kelvin & Co. is making BBQ healthy by locally sourcing as much meat and produce as possible. Also, all the meat will be antibiotic free and all natural!

 “We will promote a healthy lifestyle by doing an online ordering system for pick up only, encouraging people to get out of their offices and get steps in while enjoying fresh air,” explains Nieuwenhuis.

The entire menu is gluten free, with a gluten free option for mac and cheese and gluten free bread for sandwiches. Although Kelvin & Co. is a BBQ house, they will offer several vegan, vegetarian, and gluten free salads and sides. All of the sauces and dressings are made in house, and many of them are vegan, and gluten free.

Kelvin & Co. plans to open by April of this year.
