It looks like Southern Hospitality BBQ is expanding beyond it’s two locations in New York. Per the article from Nation’s Restaurant news here, Rocker and frontman for the band OneRepublic, Ryan Tedder, has signed on to become the first franchisee of the Southern Hospitality BBQ brand out of New York, with plans to bring the Memphis-style barbecue concept to at least 10 cities across the country.”
The article goes on to say, “The first 10 markets Tedder has targeted for a Southern Hospitality BBQ unit are Denver, Colo.; Nashville, Tenn.; Scottsdale/Phoenix, Ariz.; Dallas, Austin and Houston, Texas; Washington, D.C.; Palo Alto, Calif.; New Orleans and Atlanta.” They are”planning to continue growing company locations of the brand in New York and other select cities, as well as bringing in other franchisees, both domestic and international.”
I haven’t been to either New York location yet, but I’ve heard the atmosphere is a big part of the reason people go. Here’s a review of their BBQ by Gary at Pigtrip.net.
I’d love to know what your thoughts are if you’ve visited either location.
