While this is the first bb.q Chicken location in Florida, it won’t be the last. The company said it plans to open more locations in the Sunshine State – in Orlando, Tampa, Gainesville and Miami – in the near future.
The building that bb.q Chicken is moving into housed Tasty Wok before it moved to a larger location across the street.
bb.q Chicken was founded in South Korea in 1995, according to the website. The channel arrived in the United States in 2014 with the founding of BBDOTQ USA, an American subsidiary of the company.
