Back Beach Barbecue Celebrates Three Years in Business PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. – On Wednesday, June 24, Back Beach Barbecue will celebrate their three-year anniversary. Due to continued precautions surrounding the spread of COVID-19, the Bay County restaurant will celebrate the occasion by opening up their dining room and outdoor patio, where tables are spaced six feet apart, for loyal patrons to come enjoy their signature barbecue. The first 100 customers will receive a free Back Beach Barbecue cup and koozie. Twenty-five percent of the proceeds from the day will benefit South Walton Academy.
Back Beach Barbecue opened its doors in June 2017 and is owned and operated by Danny and Monica Cosenzi, the duo behind the famed Restaurant Paradis located in Rosemary Beach, Fla. Named as the “Best Barbecue on the Beach” by Good Grit Magazine and “Best Sandwich Shop” and “Best Catering” by the readers of Emerald Coast Magazine, Back Beach Barbecue has served locals and visitors alike from their simple yet refined menu of slow-cooked meats, homemade sides and sauces, as well as gluten free options.
To commemorate the restaurant’s anniversary, Back Beach Barbecue will donate 25 percent of the day’s proceeds to South Walton Academy, a private, non-profit inclusion school and pediatric therapy clinic in Santa Rosa Beach, Fla. The school serves all children, from age three through 9th grade, while working to bridge the gap between communication and children with autism. The new therapy clinic provides speech and occupational therapy to all children up until they are 18 years old. Representatives from the school will be at Back Beach from 11 a.m.-2 p.m. and 5-7:30 p.m. to answer any questions and inform those who are curious about their efforts.
The celebration is open to the public to attend. To learn more about Back Beach Barbecue and to stay up to date on events, new menu arrivals, and more, like their Facebook page or visit www.backbeachbarbecue.com. ###
