Bill Millers is slightly different in that they usually own the shopping center that they are located in and they make most of their money of leasing out the real estate.

Yes agreed their BBQ blows. Breakfast tacos aren't half bad.

They expand because of their business model, not their BBQ.

I haven't seen any Bill Millers yet that are in space in a shopping center. They are pretty much all some variation of their cookie-cutter design, depending on the era when they were built. A few of them on what you might call a pad site at the periphery of a shopping center. Are you saying they own the entire strip center?


Most of them are on standalone parcels, though. The only unique Bill Miller location I can think of, is the one located downtown (Commerce & Main, I think).

I would imagine it has to do with demand.

Anchor Bar (inventor of Buffalo wing) opened on 1604 at Lockhill-Selma.

It is a bit of a hike for me but I have been ordering their sauce for years. Might have to make a trip.

Yes, there will always be demand for quick and fast BBQ that is mediocre at best. If anyone does that better than any one else in the game, it is Bill Millers.

Yes in many cases they own the surrounding shopping center and land that they lease for pad sites.
