Alabama-based Full Moon Bar-B-Que on Tuesday announced the physical expansion of its brand outside of Alabama for the first ever time.
The chain’s 17th total location — and the first outside of the Yellowhammer State — will open in Madison, Mississippi, per a release. The 5,000 square foot location is set to open in summer 2021.
“Increasing the footprint of Full Moon BBQ outside of Alabama has always been a goal for our company and we have waited for the right timing and the perfect community to share our high-quality food and family recipes with,” stated David Maluff, co-owner of Full Moon BBQ.
“The city of Madison has been extremely welcoming, and we look forward to introducing our award-winning bar-b-que to their community and making Mississippi a new and forever home for our brand,” he added.
“The city of Madison wants to give Full Moon BBQ a warm Mississippi-welcome,” said Mayor Mary Butler. “We are honored and excited to have this successful and family-based bar-b-que business enter our community with quality ownership and homemade dishes developed from original recipes.”
The restaurant’s first location opened in the Southside area of downtown Birmingham in 1986.
