Longtime Willie Jewell’s franchisees, Paul and Donna Hinch, have dedicated their BBQ passion to two Willie Jewell’s locations since 2012, and are looking forward to sharing their recipe for success with Paul’s brother and sister-in-law, Mark Hinch, and his wife Liane. According to Josh Martino, president of the Home Team Restaurant Group, the family did considerable research to determine where another Willie Jewell’s would likely thrive in Florida. The laid-back, family-friendly lifestyle, paired with the area’s ongoing growth, helped the Hinches select The Villages as the right place.
Patrons of the newest Willie Jewell’s Old School B-B-Q will find the restaurant welcoming and convenient, complete with all the popular qualities of other Willie Jewell’s locations: efficient and friendly counter service, generous platters and sandwiches, delicious sides and desserts, plus self-service stations for beverages and warm BBQ sauces. The restaurant is the perfect lunch stop while exploring the community on a golf cart – or to grab smoked meats by the pound for supper at home.
