BBQ is accelerating its entry into the United States by opening stores in 25 states, half of the 50 states in the United States.
BBQ recently announced opening a new store in Columbus, Ohio, USA. BBQ opened a new store in the 25th state, half of the 50 in the US, 17 years after entering the US in 2006.
Along with the 25th store, BBQ opened its 24th store in Troy, Michigan. The store in Michigan is in the form of chicken and beer, and the size is 185 square meters. Schools, churches, and universities are distributed near the store in a mixed residential and commercial area.
The 25th store, which opened the first in Columbus, Ohio, is 278㎡ in the form of chicken and beer. It is located in an area with a large floating population, as a large mall and a university are nearby.
BBQ Chairman Yoon Hong-geun said, "The opening of the first store in Ohio is an important indicator of how exponentially the BBQ is growing, aiming to expand its business throughout the United States."
Since 32nd Street in Manhattan, USA, BBQ has expanded to major regions such as New Jersey, Texas, and California. It operates over 250 stores in 25 states, including the recently opened states of Hawaii, Michigan, and Ohio.
