Smokey Bones was founded in 1999 in Orlando, Florida. The company is a chain of American casual restaurants that feature barbequed and grilled meats. The restaurant chain is well known for its smoky flavored ribs.
The company was sold to Barbeque Integrated, Inc. in 2007 for $80 million. At this time, the company has 66 locations in 16 states on the East coast of the US and has approximately 3,700 full time employees.
Smokey Bones is undergoing a complete remodeling of all locations, which is expected to be completed in 2017. The former log cabin type of decor is being replaced with more modern furniture, big screen televisions and extended bar areas.
