OCOEE, Fla. – Florida-based barbecue chain Sonny’s BBQ just opened a new location in Central Florida featuring a drive-thru for customers.


The Ocoee location, 11080 W. Colonial Drive, opened for business on Aug. 25, though it plans to host its grand opening celebration on Sept. 20, according to a Facebook post.

The franchise was opened by iServ Management Group, LLC, which bills itself as the largest franchisee of Sonny’s BBQ.

The chain, which started in Gainesville in 1968, now has nearly two dozen locations around Central Florida.
