Billy Sims BBQ Opens Restaurant in Arkansas City, Kansas

TULSA, OK (PRWEB) April 07, 2016 - Billy Sims BBQ will open its first restaurant in Arkansas City, Kan., on Thursday April 7. The barbecue franchise will be located at 2133 N. Summit. The 2,700-square-foot restaurant will seat 60 guests and have a separate room for private events that seats up to 12 people.

Tulsa-based Billy Sims BBQ is the nation’s fastest growing fast-casual BBQ restaurant and was named one of the nation’s 10 best barbecue chains by The Daily Meal. The extensive menu includes nine meats, ranging from favorites such as ribs, brisket, pulled pork, chicken, to some unique offerings like turkey and bologna. All meats are smoked daily over pecan wood on-site at every restaurant, with careful attention to the proven recipe and process steps that have proven so popular among diners. Billy Sims BBQ completes the great dining experience with traditional sides – often with a twist – such as baked potatoes cooked in the smoker, potato salad, freshly smoked corn-on-the-cob, coleslaw, baked beans with brisket, green beans with bacon and entrée size salads with fresh vegetables.

“We are pleased to share this moment with the Arkansas City community and introduce them to our amazing food,” said Jeff Jackson, president of Billy Sims BBQ.

The Arkansas City, Kan., restaurant is owned and operated by franchise partners Dave Dunn and Sean O’Brien. They currently operate three other Billy Sims BBQ franchise locations in Andover, Dodge City and will be opening a unit in Wichita, KN later this year. They have been franchisees for six years.

Founded by University of Oklahoma running back and 1978 Heisman Trophy winner Billy Sims and co-founder Jeff Jackson, the popular Billy Sims BBQ brand has experienced phenomenal growth in recent years as BBQ enthusiasts embrace its special proprietary recipes and processes for preparing and smoking beef, pork, and more. The restaurant chain first began operation in 2004 and diners now enjoy 47 locations across five states.

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.
