All About Sonnys Barbecue

In 1968, a man named Floyd (aka Sonny) Tillman and his wife founded Sonnys Barbecue. Little did they know how popular their enterprise would become! The Tillmans wanted to bring real, authentic smokehouse barbecue to the masses, and that's exactly what they did. By 1977, Sonnys was so popular that the Tillmans decided to sell franchises. By doing this, people all over the country got to experience the sliced pork, beef, and ribs that made this restaurant such a hit. The Tillmans provided delicious food and excellent customer service, and by doing so, created a veritable barbecue institution with the Sonnys Barbecue Chain.

In 1991, Sonny retired and sold his barbecue company to Bob and Jeff Yarmuth. With the original goals of Sonnys in mind, the Yarmuths brought the restaurant into a new era. These days, Sonnys Barbecue is the largest chain of barbecue restaurants in the nation, offering over 150 locations all over the United States.
