Jacksonville, Fl., June 23, 2020 – After opening its doors to hungry BBQ fans on July 1, 1980 at 1638 University Boulevard South, The ORIGINAL Woody’s Bar-B-Q has served as a Jacksonville, Florida landmark in all the years since. Now, with more than a dozen franchise locations in Florida and one Northern representation in Huntingdon, Pennsylvania, the founders of the classic Southern BBQ chain want to say “thank you” to their fans. Still owned by franchise namesake and CEO, Woody Mills, and his co-founder and company president, Yolanda Mills-Mawman, The ORIGINAL Woody’s Bar-B-Q will extend a generous 40% discount off all dine-in and take-out orders* throughout the day on July 1, 2020. The 40th Anniversary discount will also be honored at the chain’s corporate training location, Woody’s Bar-B-Q of Ponte Vedra Beach at 226 Solana Road in Ponte Vedra Beach, Florida.

“We are truly thankful for the many patrons who’ve made Woody’s Bar-B-Q a favorite among their family dinners, corporate events or gatherings with friends,” said Mills-Mawman. “This has been particularly true this year throughout the pandemic. The show of support from our neighbors has been nothing short of incredible. As thanks, we ran a 20% off special on dine-in and take-out orders for the week after our dining room reopened and the response was so positive and heartwarming. We hope to create a festive atmosphere at our corporate University Boulevard and Ponte Vedra Beach locations on the day of our company’s birthday, so our guests know how much they mean to us.”

But the good news doesn’t stop there. The weekend after the 40th Anniversary Celebration encompasses the 4th of July, a time when BBQ reigns supreme. From Friday, July 3 through Sunday, July 5, the Corporate Woody’s Bar-B-Q locations at University Boulevard in Jacksonville and Solana Road in Ponte Vedra Beach will feature the return of the July >4th Ribtacular showcasing All-You-Care-To-Eat Smokin’ Spare Ribs, plus two sides and garlic toast for a special low price of just $14.99.
