Naples Rib Company donates to 30 charities during November


Family-owned and operated Naples Rib Company, a community-focused barbeque and catering restaurant, celebrates its 30-year anniversary in November by donating 20 percent of all dine-in and take-out sales to 30 local and national charities.

The program runs November 1-30, 2013 at both Naples Rib Company in Long Beach and at the family’s second location, Newport Rib Company in Costa Mesa, CA.

“We enjoy being able to give back the community that has supported us over the past 30 years.” said Dave Ursini, co-owner of Naples and Newport Rib Company.

“There are so many non-profits doing amazing work in our community so it is a privilege to contribute to their missions,” he said.

“Many of the charities were selected because our family, customers or employees have been positively affected by them,” said John Ursini, co-owner of Naples and Newport Rib Company. “For example, one of our loyal customers has Type 1 diabetes (T1D) and is very careful about her dietary choices. Supporting JDRF (Juvenile Diabetes Research Foundation) who leads the charge in finding a cure for this disease is one way we can give back,” Ursini said.

Naples Rib Company, founded in the early 1980s, is family-owned and operated by the Ursini family. Founded by patriarch Fran Ursini, Newport Rib Company, located in Costa Mesa, and Naples Rib Company, located in Long Beach, specializes in the finest barbeque in Southern California. Services include dine-in with a full bar, take-out and event catering. Today, Fran’s sons, John and Dave Ursini, operate the restaurants with the assistance of their sister Laura.
