Selmon’s Opens In Palm Harbor, Brandon; 100+ Jobs

Fans of Lee Roy Selmon's restaurant will be happy to hear that the home of soul-satisfying food will be opening two new locations, one in Palm Harbor and the other in Brandon.

The original Lee Roy Selmon's at 4302 W. Boy Scout Blvd. in Tampa opened in November 2000; since then the restaurant has opened locations in St. Petersburg, Bradenton, Sarasota and Ft. Myers. The newest additions to the Selmon's family in Palm Harbor and Brandon have not yet opened, but will soon.

"We will be opening the Palm Harbor location at the end of May," says Lee Roy Selmon's President Greg Lynn. "We have not finalized the opening of our Brandon location yet, but are working on it."

In preparation for the opening of the restaurants, Lynn says the Selmon's organization is hiring up to 100 jobs at the Palm Harbor location alone.

"We will be hiring front of the house positions such as hosts, servers, bussers and bartenders, as well as back of the house positions such as prep cooks and management," says Lynn. "We are always looking for great management at all of our locations to help grow our concept."

Lynn says that interviewing is taking place now at the Palm Harbor storefront in the Park Avenue Shoppes center.

In a time when many restaurants have gone under due to the economic recession, Lee Roy Selmon's has thrived. Lynn attributes its success to several strategic decisions.

"We have managed to combine high-quality food and service with value-priced menu items," he says. "By having managing partners in each restaurant we have encouraged out of the box thinking, and have adjusted to the times and will continue to do so."
