The region has snagged another restaurant from a patriotic purveyor of barbecue.
Monday afternoon, Mission BBQ — which operates Bay area locations in Town 'N Country and the University area — revealed the grand opening of its Brandon location as noon Nov. 14.
The fast-casual restaurant at 1504 W. Brandon Blvd. (the 40th outpost for Mission BBQ) will offer the Maryland-based chain's traditional lineup of American 'cue. During next week's grand opening ceremony, remarks from community members and a live rendition of the National Anthem will follow an 11:30 a.m. ribbon cutting.
Leading up to its premiere, Mission BBQ Brandon is set to host two private fundraising events whose proceeds will go to organizations that local police and fire departments support. But the restaurant's Military Appreciation Night, hosted between 5 and 9 p.m. Friday to benefit Special Operations Warrior Foundation, will be open to the public.
