“In 2019, we signed a lease to open Maryland’s first bb.q Chicken location, but unfortunately, due to Covid and other factors, we had to delay our opening,” says Mike, the franchisee of bb.q Chicken Ellicott City, “Despite the delay, we tried to commit to bringing the authentic Korean flavors of bb.q Chicken to our community as soon as we are able. After that patience, we were finally able to open our location, and we truly appreciate the tremendous support of our customers.”
