Full Moon BBQ to open first Huntsville location, creating 70 jobs

Alabama-based Full Moon Bar-B-Que and Ajlo Foods recently announced the restaurant will be expanding into the Rocket City for the first time later this year.

The location at 1009 Memorial Parkway in Huntsville will be Full Moon BBQ’s 16th total location, all of which are in the Yellowhammer State.

The new restaurant will be housed in a fully renovated 7,000 square foot building; this will mark the brand’s largest location to date and the fifth location to be opened by Ajlo Foods, co-owned by Naseem Ajlouny and Chase Ajlouny.

Full Moon BBQ Huntsville will be hiring 70 employees for the location, according to a press release.

“Entering into the Huntsville market is one of our most exciting and anticipated openings to date,” stated Naseem Ajlouny, Full Moon BBQ and Ajlo Foods operator/owner. “We look forward to serving the Huntsville community with our great food and superior service.”

In addition to the standard dining area, the restaurant will include a 60-person event space available for private gatherings, as well as an overflow dining room to ensure customers are safely distanced within the COVID-19 parameters.

Full Moon BBQ Huntsville will also offer a drive-thru and catering service to the local area.

“We already feel very welcomed by the city of Huntsville,” added Jeff Donaldson, operating partner of Full Moon BBQ Huntsville. “At Full Moon BBQ we treat our customers like family, and we cannot wait for this brand to become a staple in the Huntsville community.”
