The company was founded in 2012 by Bill Travis. The operation was in place before that time as a hobby for about three years. As time progressed, Mr. Travis increasingly received requests and orders for the food he smoked. Mr. Travis began entering competitions, and after several placings, was recognized by those not only outside of his local “fan base” but by BBQ enthusiasts statewide. In 2012, Mr. Travis retired from his profession of 25 years in the jewelry industry and converted his “hobby” into a restaurant business. Shortly thereafter, Wholly Smokin’ BBQ was placed on the SC BBQ Trail. In 2013, Mr. Travis was approached by an investor, Andy Jeffords, who shared in the same dream of taking Wholly Smokin’ BBQ & Ribs to the next level. Today, we are excited to be relocated to the historic district of Florence. We are happy to be a part of the revitalization of downtown Florence, as we are certain these efforts will bring growth and new life to the downtown area.More
