Makes a person wonder if Cox Bros did a little lobbying to cut down on BBQ competition in the area??

I have never understood when communities enact ordinances that keep business away. All too often it is done for reasons of protectionism and in so doing actually hurts the community imho.
But that is definitely something to check into when doing due diligence for a business plan.
