The iconic Goody Goody will live again in Tampa's Hyde Park Village. The announcement was made by WS Development and Hyde Park Village.
"We are honored that Richard Gonzmart would select Hyde Park Village for this beloved concept,” said Jeremy Sclar, president of WS Development. "Richard Gonzmart's integrity and devotion to the community together with the heritage of the Goody Goody brand are an unbeatable combination.”
Goody Goody will be at 1601 W. Swann Ave. at South Dakota Avenue on the same block as CinéBistro. It's very close to the original restaurant location on Grand Central and also close to the longest-lasting location at Florida Avenue that most people remember. The Florida location closed 10 years ago.
"I'm ecstatic to bring back this Tampa tradition,” said Richard Gonzmart. "We've lost too many of these iconic places over the years and I really did not want the name to just fade away into history. Goody Goody is one of those places that helped create Tampa's identity. At the Columbia Restaurant, which marks its 110th anniversary this year – as does Hyde Park Village – we celebrate history, heritage, family and good food. That's what this restaurant means to me. Our new partnership with WS Development and Hyde Park Village is perfect. WS is committed to Hyde Park Village and to Tampa, and we share their passion.”
A date for the opening of the new Goody Goody will be announced later.
