The Delicious Smell of (BBQ) Opportunity
Considered one of the best BBQ joints in the country, Uncle Willie's is an authentic BBQ restaurant that has established a reputation for preparing and serving delicious wood-smoked BBQ food — in the traditional southern style. We're talking mouthwatering delicacies like pulled pork, smoked chicken, baby back ribs, beef brisket and smoked sausage. Plus an array of hearty, rib-sticking (pun intended) sides like Carolina baked beans, black-eyed peas 'n rice, sweet potato & apples and Delta Queen coleslaw.
Now's your chance to join us at the BBQ pit.
BBQ is HOT
The sweet spot of the American restaurant landscape right now is clear: fresh, homemade quality served with maximum convenience. Americans are craving delicious, crafted foods and inviting atmosphere, but they desire value as well. That's why the number of U.S. fast casual BBQ units is on the rapid growth path. Today, as Americans head back out to eat in record numbers, the Uncle Willie's franchise opportunity offers a way to capitalize on this demand with a proven system for success.
The Menu Diversity Advantage
Yes, the name is Uncle Willie’s Smokehouse, but there’s way more to our menu than just smoked meat. And that means opportunity for our franchise owners. Our diversified menu broadens with opportunities in catering, and is also simple to execute. Our operators enjoy the ability to offer something for every appetite at every occasion.
