Williamson Bros. Bar-B-QOverview
When two brothers from Talladega, Alabama moved to Georgia and decided to start a small business out of their passion for good barbecue they had no idea just how big they would get. Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q, owned by Larry and Danny Williamson, operate three local restaurants, a full-service catering facility, a light industry manufacturing facility and a property management group. This year marks 26 successful years of business in Marietta and they’ve grown throughout all of them. Every year they focus on spreading more BBQ to more places and rely on their dependable team of leaders for new growth.

Commitment to Community
One of their largest investments is in the community. They partner with dozens of philanthropic causes and missions and aim to become the premier business in terms of compassion and extension for local causes. The sales at Williamson Bros. are sustained by the fiercely loyal customer base they’ve grown over the years.

Williamson Bros. offers smoked meat items, home-style sides and home-made sauces in their three area locations. They also operate in the Georgia Dome, in over 50 festivals, and routinely cater events for over 1,000 people at a time.  With a focus on community, delicious quality food, fun experience and family, it’s no wonder Williamson Bros. Bar-B-Q has become a community staple.
