When Jabari Powell conceived of MadJacks BBQ, it was part dream and part solid planning. His vision of the ultimate barbecue experience in the heart of downtown Pittsfield struck a chord with a community hungry for new businesses. With the assistance of PERC, Jabari got his finances in order and a point-of-sale system for a better chance at lasting success. Today, MadJacks features takeout (as well as inside seating for up to 20) and has become a new downtown landmark.
