Woody's Bar-B-Q expanding across Canada


May 30, 2011

BRAMPTON, ONTARIO - Canadian Master Franchise owner Dan Masters is pleased to announce that the Canadian Franchise program has greatly exceeded projections with locations opening from coast to coast.

Woody's Bar-B-Q is a thirty year old restaurant chain based in Jacksonville Florida. Bucking the trends of most United States based restaurant chains Woody's has actually increased in size during the recession.

According to Masters "The response we have had so far in Canada has been overwhelming. Woody's will be the only national Southern Bar-B-Q chain in Canada. This is real Southern Bar-B-Q slowly smoked using traditional methods. I was a customer of Woody's in the south prior to acquiring the Canadian rights and if anyone serves a better product then what we will offer Canadians I haven't found it"

Masters further states "We have franchise restaurants opening from St John's Newfoundland to the east and Vancouver Island to the west. And many places in between"

I had been searching for a great concept to introduce to Canadians when a mutual business acquaintance introduced me to the founders of Woody's. I had been in this industry for over twenty-five years and knew a winning brand when I saw it. I even kicked the tires for a while in a consulting role with Woody's in the Unites States before beginning the Canadian program.

We've been able to attract a quality staff. My key franchise support people have earned their spurs with other national chains and are top caliber franchise support and restaurant professionals. We have also attracted an incredible core of talented franchisees.

Masters claims that the franchise program has an initial franchise cost for far less than other full service dining chains in Canada.

Woody's offers full service dining, take-out and catering. Franchises are available nationwide. Woody's franchise owners will receive a comprehensive training and support program. Woody's Bar-B-Q Canada offers a toll free number for franchise and customer comments.

About Woody's:

In 1980, Woody and Yolanda Mills set out to create a Bar-B-Q restaurant where the meat melted in your mouth, the coleslaw was so fresh you'd think it was mixed at your table, and the authentic Bar-B-Q flavored beans were the best you'd ever had. So with their passion for Bar-B-Q and a dog-eared collection of homemade recipes, they went on to create a dining experience in the tradition of the South's great hometown Bar-B-Q shacks. It's the kind of Bar-B-Q you and your family can call, well, your Bar-B-Q.
