Better barbecue is coming to Denver!  Leading barbecue franchise Billy Sims BBQ will open its first Denver-area restaurant in Edgewater on July 13th at 2001 Sheridan Boulevard in the Lake Marketplace shopping center across from Sloan’s Lake.

Restaurant founder and legendary football player Billy Sims will be at the restaurant on July 14th and 15th to meet guests and sign autographs.

Billy Sims BBQ’s extensive menu includes nine meats, including favorites such as ribs, beef brisket, pulled pork, chicken, turkey and even Bologna!  All meats are smoked daily over Pecan wood in the restaurants.  Completing the lineup are traditional sides with a twist, such as baked potato salad and a mustard-based potato salad, freshly smoked corn, coleslaw, baked beans with pulled pork, green beans with bacon, and entrée size salads with fresh vegetables.  All Billy Sims BBQ restaurants showcase the smoker in the front of the restaurant with a strategically placed cutting station, which shows guests that meats are pulled right off the smoker and freshly sliced prior to serving.

“With a brand as strong as Billy Sims BBQ, we have an incredible opportunity to expand across Colorado in the next few years,” said Jeff Jackson, co-founder and CEO of Billy Sims BBQ.  “Once Denver tries our unique, mouthwatering pecan wood smoked meats, they will become loyal fans!”

The Edgewater, Co., restaurant is owned and operated by franchise partners Cody and Sharla Wright and Dave Dunn.  This is the first Billy Sims BBQ restaurant for the Wrights and the sixth location for Dunn.  Dunn owns Billy Sims BBQ restaurants in Kansas.  The first Colorado Billy Sims BBQ recently opened in Colorado Springs.

The new restaurant is 1,800 square-feet and will seat 55 people.  It will also offer catering and carry-out.

“The unique Colorado-style atmosphere of the restaurant, carefully selected local brews, aroma of savory meats, and the friendly staff will ensure guests feel right at home,” said Cody Wright, co-franchisee.

Founded by University of Oklahoma running back and 1978 Heisman Trophy winner Billy Sims  and co-founder and CEO 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, franchising in 2009, and diners now enjoy over 50 locations across six states.

Named a Franchisee Satisfaction Award Winner for 2016 and 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.
