Leeds-based Red's True Barbecue is set to open a new site in Manchester in February next year.
The American-inspired business was founded by James Douglas and Scott Munro a year ago.
The restaurant serves a range of meats which are cooked "low and slow" using hickory and fruit woods in American smokers.
The new site will be 6,050 sq ft, significantly larger than the Leeds restaurant, which is around 2,600 sq ft, according to the Yorkshire Post.
Red's True Barbecue also plans to sell its own sauces in its restaurants and online from next year.
This year, Red's True Barbecue has turned over £3.2m with an Ebitda of around £650,000, which the majority being re-invested in the business.
Douglas said the plan was to have around 15 to 18 Red's True Barbecue restaurants open in total over the next five years.
