Billy Sims BBQ plans game winning expansion in 2016
TULSA — This year is shaping up to be a record year for fast-casual restaurant Billy Sims BBQ. The growing barbecue franchise announced it has signed nine new franchise-owned locations spanning across three states. Those states include Oklahoma, Kansas, and the restaurant’s first-ever location in Iowa. All of the Kansas and Oklahoma units will be developed by existing franchisees.
Named a Franchisee Satisfaction Award Winner for 2015 by Franchise Business Review and a Future 50 fastest-growing small chain restaurant in 2015 by Restaurant Business, Billy Sims BBQ is consistently ranked highly by franchisees for its leadership, training and operations support, financial performance and general satisfaction.
This year, Billy Sims BBQ opened four new locations in Chanute, Kansas; Warr Acres, Oklahoma; Dodge City, Kansas; and most recently Enid, Oklahoma. The restaurant has two more openings planned in Chickasha and Yukon, Oklahoma for later this month. In total, Billy Sims BBQ has 48 restaurants in five states.
“This year has been a stand-out year for us and we intend to make 2016 even better,” said Jeff Jackson, president of Billy Sims BBQ. “We have worked closely with our current franchisees to help them develop their restaurants, while also actively recruiting top-notch new franchisees to help us grow into 2016 and beyond.”
