Woody’s Bar-B-Q® Tees Up and Opens First Franchise in Augusta
Florida-Based Chain Launches its Southern Barbecue Concept in the Home of the Masters
After 36 years of cooking up authentic Southern barbecue and comfort food-inspired sides to a growing collection of fans, it wouldn’t be a stretch to say that the founders of Woody’s Bar-B-Q – Woody Mills and Yolanda Mills-Mawman – have truly “mastered” their skillset. That’s what makes the company’s next move such a stroke of genius: to open the Florida-based concept’s one and only Peach State location at the home of the Masters – Augusta, Georgia. Opened its doors in early March 2016, the newest Woody’s Bar-B-Q franchise is situated in the former WifeSaver restaurant location at 1501 North Leg Road, next to the Walmart Supercenter.
“We are truly excited to see the heights to which our newest location might climb,” said Mills-Mawman. “In addition to the fact that we get to introduce the people of Augusta to our very special interpretation of slow-smoked Southern barbecue, stick-to-your-ribs sides and service with a smile, this is an incredible location in a highly trafficked area of town. Woody’s Bar-B-Q of Augusta is accessible from both North Leg and Wrightsboro Roads – so visibility alone is definitely in our favor. Of course, what we’ve always found to be our greatest asset – besides the food, reputation for service excellence and ability to select terrific restaurant sites – is word of mouth. We can hardly wait for Augusta to come out and try the food, then have the word spread all over town.”
