Smokehouse Bar-B-Que owners Shannon and Crystal Taylor are set to open a second location in Pickles Gap Village next month.

Shannon said the opening of a second location, which is scheduled for March 1, is exciting.

"We feel like it’s a great opportunity," he said. "Highway 65 is like a gateway to Branson, Missouri, and we would love to be a part of that.

"About 30,000 people drive that way every day. We’ve always been around the middle of Conway but have never been on a highway."

The Taylors also own the Smokehouse Bar-B-Que restaurant located at 505 Donaghey Ave.

"We wanted to open in Pickles Gap because we like the country feel," Shannon said. "We think it will be a great mix for us."

Pickles Gap Village is known for featuring hand-crafted gifts in a variety of stores as well a print shop and boutique. It is home to The Pickle Barrel Fudge Factory and Cafe.
