Grandmas BBQ was founded by the late Marcia Owens Ballard. After attending business and cosmetology schools, Ms. Marcia was hired into the Orange County Public School System. She quickly developed a passion caring for young children. This passion to care for young children opened a door to nurture and watch over kids through daycare services she provided. During her time as a daycare operator Ms. Marcia would prepare fully dressed, well seasoned DELICIOUS meals for the families she cared for. After many request to cater miscellaneous events Ms. Marcia began offering catering services full time.
Stepping out in faith, being the woman she was, she coined the name Grandma’s BBQ, purchased a food truck and went to work! The food truck would begin servicing Eatonville’s Catalina Park and later would dominate the Greater Orlando Area. The entire menu is still created from scratch daily, the way she made it. Operating for the 14 years no recipe has changed! Ms. Marcia enjoyed watching her customers enjoy her award winning cooking. Paired with Grandma’s BBQ original sauce the food is still a hit! Now owned and operated by her Grandson, Deodrick Ballard, the family restaurant continues to grow in service and care. There’s no cooking like Grandma’s BBQ cooking!
