New York City’s Mighty Quinn’s Barbeque signed a multi-unit development agreement to open three locations in Long Island with franchisee Jason Wotman.

The chain expects to open the first unit late this year.

With Wotman spearheading franchise development on Long Island, the corporate team plans to add 10 to 12 additional franchised locations across New York and New Jersey by 2020.

Mighty Quinn’s, which started as a mobile smoker hitched to a pickup truck in 2011 in Brooklyn, blends barbecue traditions from Texas and the Carolinas. The first brick-and-mortar location opened in 2013 in New York’s East Village. The Mighty Quinn’s network now includes nine corporate-owned locations, a restaurant at Yankee Stadium, and five international franchised units.
