Ford’s Garage, a restaurant that opened its first location in Fort Myers in 2012 and has been in expansion mode since, is bringing its brand of dining to a booming area off State Road 56.
The new location is scheduled to open the week of April 3.
Besides the Fort Myers location and the new site in Central Pasco, Ford’s Garage has restaurants in Cape Coral, Estero and Brandon, as well.
“Our entire team has been working hard to prepare for this expansion,” Marc Brown, managing partner, said in a news release.
“We are excited to introduce our innovative and entertaining dining experience to new friends in Wesley Chapel and its surrounding areas,” he added.
Ford’s Garage is a tribute to the legendary Henry Ford. The original Ford’s Garage is in Historic Downtown Fort Myers, just minutes from Henry Ford’s winter estate.
Ford’s Garage combines the look of a 1920s service station with the feel of a modern-day prime burger and craft beer joint, the news release says.
Its menu includes a variety of burgers all served on a Brioche or European pretzel bun. It also serves comfort dishes, such as Chicken Henry and the Pulled Pork Mac N’ Cheese.
“We pride ourselves in having a relentless drive for quality in our food, drink, atmosphere and customer service,” Brown says.
The new location is at 25526 Sierra Center Blvd., directly across from the Tampa Premium Outlets.
The Ford’s Garage brand is officially licensed by the Ford Motor Company.
Ford’s Garage, operated and managed by 23 Restaurant Services, is planning to add locations in Westchase, Countryside, St. Petersburg and Lakeland, in Florida. It also is planning new locations in Dearborn, Michigan and Myrtle Beach, South Carolina.
