Woody's Bar-B-Q® Will Pay Nationwide Tribute to Veterans this Veterans Day

National Franchise to Thank Former Servicemen and Women for Their Service to their Country with a Gift Certificate for Free Barbecue* on November 11

November 03, 2014 // Franchising.com // Jacksonville, Florida – On a day when the nation shows its gratitude to countless servicemen and women for their service to the United States of America, Florida-based national franchise plans to say thank you in the best way it knows how: with the gift of great food. At participating restaurants nationwide this November 11, Woody's Bar-B-Q will honor veterans with a gift certificate for a free entrée*.

"As a former Marine, I have great respect for our American service veterans," explains Woody's Bar-B-Q co-founder, Woody Mills. "Woody's Bar-B-Q is always trying to find a way to say thank you for their huge sacrifice in keeping America safe and free. When we think in terms of the things they give up on a daily basis – like their personal safety, time with family and friends, the comfort of their own bed, and the joys of a great all-American meal – my partner, Yolanda and I wanted to foot the bill for at least ONE of those things our servicemen and women may have missed while serving abroad or right here at home. Nothing says 'home' quite like a meal shared around a table with friends and family, and – at least in my humble opinion – nothing says 'America' quite like good old fashioned Southern Barbecue."

Some of Woody's Bar-B-Q's most popular entrees feature slow-smoked meats like Woody's Signature Baby Back Ribs, Texas Beef Brisket, Carolina Pulled Pork, Grilled Prime Rib, and more all served with comfort food sides inspired by tried-and-true recipes from the kitchen of Mills' mother. Launched in Jacksonville, Fl. In 1980, Woody's Bar-B-Q currently has 25 franchise locations in Florida, Utah, Ohio, and Pennsylvania – with future restaurants planned for Georgia, Tennessee, Colorado and Michigan. The newest location – Woody's Bar-B-Q of Cocoa, Fl. – is scheduled to open shortly after Veteran's Day.

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 great Southern Bar-B-Q. From the humble beginnings of just one location in Jacksonville, Florida, a shared passion for Bar-B-Q, 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 Bar-B-Q 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 Bar-B-Q sauces and meats, as well as their freshly prepared side dishes.
