Local barbecue family reopens business for a day

SPRINGFIELD, Fla. (WJHG/WECP) - They say old habits die hard and that may be true for the local customers of what once was Glenn's BBQ.

Tuesday morning a Facebook post encouraged people to come out and enjoy a barbecue sale at the Glenns' home in Springfield. Former costumers of Glenn's did not disappoint. Lines of people filled the family's home as the cookout completely sold out.

It seems locals never truly forgot the business that once stood as a successful barbecue restaurant.

"We enjoyed that business in our community," Maiben Brown, a customer, said. "It was really thriving back in the day and I miss it, you know? I just really do miss that business and I hope it can come back alive."

Former owner Bud Glenn's son told us they would like to reopen the business one day, but as of right now there are no concrete plans in place.
