Living out a lifelong entrepreneurial dream, Patel has owned half a dozen Del Taco locations throughout Brevard County, and currently owns several highly successful convenience stores, a hardware store and commercial real estate company. Never one to be accused of being idle, he also works as an agent for Reliance Insurance in Titusville, serves as a Board Member for the local YMCA and is a member of the Titusville Chamber of Commerce.
Desiring to own his own full-service restaurant, Patel was drawn to the Woody's Bar-B-Q franchise system.

"I've lived in Titusville since 1993, so Cocoa is in my backyard," explained Patel. "The Woody's Bar-B-Q brand has an excellent reputation and its former Cocoa location had a proven history of success. I feel extremely optimistic about our reception from Brevard County residents. My General Manager – Kevin – brings a great deal of foodservice experience to the table, including management of a Cheesecake Factory. And I plan to be in the restaurant virtually every day – overseeing the operation and getting to know our customers."
"Hitesh brings a lot of energy and enthusiasm to his role as Woody's Bar-B-Q franchisee,"
Located at 4885 North US Highway 1, Woody's Bar-B-Q of Cocoa is now open for business. Having applied for a liquor license, Patel hopes to have a full bar up and running in time for summer. The restaurant currently boasts an ample sized dining room, with seating enough for 153 hungry customers.
