Billy Sims BBQ

The Billy Sims BBQ franchise is an Oklahoma-based BBQ brand named after a former pro football player. Outside of football, Slims has a passion for barbecue. In the early 2000s, Slims met his business partner, Jeff Jackson. They met each other while working on marketing campaigns for retail brands. Since they're both from regions known for BBQ, Jackson knew they had to start a BBQ business together. With that idea in mind, the original Billy Sims Barbecue location opened in Tulsa, Oklahoma, at the Farm Shopping Center in 2004. Since then, the BBQ franchise has grown to more than 50 units in the U.S.
