Crim’s Bar-B-Q began as a dream for James Crim, Sr. He is a native of Chicago, Illinois where he enlisted in the United States Navy in 1969. Throughout his career, he has been stationed all over the world. He served over 20 years in the U.S. Navy where he retired as Master Chief Petty Officer (E-9). After relocating his family back to Jacksonville, Florida, he wanted to take the next step towards achieving his lifelong dream of owning his own Bar-B-Q business. He started out with a simple Bar-B-Q catering service, and got his big break during Super Bowl XXXIX when his catering business was awarded the contract by the National Football League (NFL) to feed its staff. Hat has enabled him to build a restaurant and purchase major equipment. Currently, he owns Crim’s Bar-B-Q & Catering Service on the Westside of Jacksonville, Florida.
