Billy Bob's Country Market History

Billy had a vision when he saw the old Kmart in Waterford and didn’t want it to sit around and waste. He wanted to bring it back to life with his vision and passion, which is exactly what he did.

The name behind Billy Bob's is more than just a name, its reasoning is near and dear to our hearts. As Billy was putting this store together he couldn't help but feel such deep appreciation for his late father who taught him all he knows about business and life. Billy's father was more than just his Dad, but his best friend. Billy wanted a way to honor his late father in the naming of this new place, a name that would honor their relationship and be a reminder of how far God has brought him since he started his journey into the business world as a child with his Dad.

Well, you may have guessed it, but Billy's Dad was affectionately known as Bob! Thus, Billy~Bob's was born!

 

The family isn't new to the area as they've owned and operated a gas station/store and restaurant in Grand Blanc for many years.

It's unclear when they plan to open.
