TAMPA -- Ford's Garage has announced the location of its three new restaurants in Tampa Bay scheduled to open in the next year following the success of its Fort Myers location. The Fort Myers location was the first for Ford's Garage and was opened in 2012.
The three new restaurants will be located in Westchase, Wesley Chapel, and Clearwater. Ford's Garage has been noted for its burgers, such as the Model "A" with cheddar cheese, a fried egg, arugula, bacon, pico de gallo, lettuce, tomato, and red onion. It is also known for its 1920's 'service station' feel.
The restaurants will be opening at the following locations:
- Wesley Chapel - 25526 Sierra Center Blvd, across from the Tampa Premium Outlets. It is expected to open in February 2017.
- Countryside- 26210 US Hwy 19 N in Clearwater. It is expected to open March 2017.
- Westchase- no mailing address yet, but the location is set to be on the corner of Sheldon Rd. and Linebaugh Ave. in the Costco shopping center. It is expected to open April 2017.
These new locations bring the number of Ford's Garage restaurants to seven in Florida, with one new location being scheduled to open in Dearborn, MI the following year.
