It’s only fitting that a 35-year-old Southern barbecue franchise would want to have a presence in a state that is home to the “BBQ Capital of the World.” That’s why Florida-based Woody’s Bar-B-Q is proud to announce the opening of its newest restaurant in Murfreesboro, Tennessee – marking the national chain’s one and only restaurant in the state. After opening on February 2, proud new operators Lea Keisling and Neil Johnston are excited about the promise that their new restaurant holds.
After spending a year as the owner of a Woody’s Bar-B-Q franchise in Jacksonville, Florida, industry veteran Jack Dunsmoor has decided to add more to his plate he will open his second Woody’s franchise in the fourth quarter of 2014 in a premier location at the intersection of Baymeadows Road and Philips Highway in Jacksonville: just 4.5 miles away from his current location. While assuming ownership of an additional location in the midst of the holiday rush was far from ideal, Dunsmoor believed it was an opportunity he couldn’t let slip by.
On the heels of the success of its Double Dog Dare limited-time-offer campaign, which showcased a duo of creatively concocted hot dogs, Woody’s Bar-B-Q has cooked up something even bigger and better for barbecue fans during the summer months.

Woody’s Bar-B-Q invites customers to pull up a chair at one of the company’s participating franchise locations all across the nation to celebrate the July 4th Ribtacular from July 2 to July 4.

Woody’s Bar-B-Q is firing up the grill for two new limited-time menu offers. Participating restaurants will “Double Dog Dare” their customers to try a duo of hot dogs beginning May 1.
The two newest menu items include the Sloppy Dog, which features Cheddar Jack cheese, Sloppy Woody barbecue pork in Woody’s secret sauce, cole slaw, and fried onion straws, and the Salty Dog, which features a beef hot dog wrapped it in bacon, and topped with diced BBQ Pork, a triple layer of Cheddar Jack cheese, pickles, and Woody’s own Sweet Bar-B-Q sauce.
The quick-service vision that initially began buzzing around the brains of cofounders Woody Mills and Yolanda Mills-Mawman in 2007 recently became a full-blown reality for Southern barbecue franchise Woody’s Bar-B-Q. After debuting a full-service-location-turned-fast-casual-prototype in late 2012, the company tightened and tweaked the concept before finding the ideal franchisee to premiere the first Woody’s Bar-B-Q Express built from the ground up.
Authentic Southern barbecue may not be the first thing that comes to mind when one thinks of dieting, but thanks to the recent debut of its Healthy Choices menu at Woody’s Bar-B-Q locations throughout the U.S., the concept of a diet may have just gotten a whole lot easier to swallow. Consisting of everything from starters that weigh in at 300 calories or less to entrées that cap out at a sensible 800 calories, the Healthy Choices menu is sure to be met with rave reviews from barbecue fans who have weight loss at the top of their New Year’s resolutions.
Throughout the month of February at participating locations all over the U.S. and Canada, national Southern barbecue franchise Woody’s Bar-B-Q will show the love for its fans with some sweet deals in honor of Valentine’s Day.

In addition to the entrée, guests will receive their choice of two sides and a slice of garlic toast.
