Franklin Street's Justin Berryman secured a lease for a 3,150-SF space for Jacksonville-based Woody’s Bar-B-Q.

FORT LAUDERDALE – Franklin Street, a full-service commercial real estate firm, has secured a lease for a 3,150-square-foot space for Jacksonville-based Woody’s Bar-B-Q, an award-winning barbeque restaurant chain. Woody’s Bar-B-Q will be located at 18283 Pines Boulevard at the Shoppes of Silver Lakes shopping center in Pembroke Pines, about 15 miles west of downtown Fort Lauderdale. Justin Berryman, director of retail leasing for Franklin Street’s Miami office, represented the tenant in the transaction.

The restaurant is scheduled to open in early 2019. This is the 18th Woody’s Bar-B-Q location in Florida following the opening of its eatery in Jacksonville’s East Beltway area earlier this year.

“Franklin Street is proud to help Woody’s Bar-B-Q with their entry into the South Florida market and plans for future expansion,” said Berryman. “They have established a strong brand recognition and a loyal customer base with over three decades of success in Florida. The logical next step was to utilize its statewide reputation to expand a few hours south in the tri-county area.”   

Woody’s Bar-B-Q is based in Jacksonville, Florida, and the chain’s first restaurant was opened in 1980. Woody’s has more than 20 restaurants across New York, Pennsylvania, Kentucky, Georgia and Florida.

About Woody’s Bar-B-Q®
After opening their first Woody’s Bar-B-Q in 1980, partners Woody Mills and Yolanda Mills-Mawman have spent the past three decades setting the “bar” higher for classic Southern barbecue. From the humble beginnings of just one location in Jacksonville, Florida, a shared passion for barbecue, and a dog-eared collection of recipes, Mills and Mawman have grown the Woody’s Bar-B-Q brand to locations reaching from the Deep South where barbecue is king to the Northeast and Western fronts. Perhaps best known for their legendary melt-in-your-mouth slow-smoked Signature Baby Back Ribs, Woody’s has also built quite a following among patrons with their secret recipe barbecue sauces and meats, as well as their freshly prepared comfort food-inspired side dishes.
