About Quacks

We know, you have questions about the name. Well, you came to the right place because we’ve got an explanation for you. When our owner’s son moved from Seattle to Oxford with the rest of his family, his new soccer coach decided to call him Quack in reference to the Oregon Ducks (yes, you read that right, don’t bother re-reading.) Does it make sense? Absolutely not, but the name stuck around, just like we plan to do.

Luke McKey

Joe Bittick And Luke McKey - Owners

An Ole Miss grad himself, Luke has always been two things: business-minded and fun-loving. After a successful career in the Seattle real estate industry, Luke moved back to Oxford with his family where these two attributes together eventually led him to open the wine store, Campus Wines and Spirits. Prior to that, however, Luke held a desire to get into the restaurant business and spent seven years evaluating different concepts and locations. Finally, inspiration struck one night when he made an offhanded comment to his business partner, Joe, how odd it was that Seattle had their own style of hot dog and Mississippi didn’t. Joe responded by inventing a hot tamale themed hot dog, and as Luke watched him work, he saw the final piece of the puzzle fall into place to kick start this party.

Joe Bittick

Joe Bittick - Owner

After ten years in the food service industry working almost every position imaginable, Joe came to the realization that he loves food and beverage more than any other work, and it would take the love away to do it every day. Instead, he plans on applying his knowledge of high-quality processes to more approachable foods for mass audiences, by turning hot dogs into an artistic avenue to display different inspired foods from all over the world at a reasonable price. All of this is best summed up in his own words, “I just want to make sure everyone has a good time.”
