Andy and Amy Jones are Midwesterners born and raised. They are no strangers to hard work and were both raised on the “work hard, play hard” mentality. Amy first started working in the service industry as a teenager waiting tables at a local bar & grille in Sioux City, IA. She continued in the service industry, bartending/cocktail waitressing while she lived in Queens in New York City.
After 7 years in New York, Amy return home to help run the family business. This is when she first realized that she wanted to follow in her parent’s footstep and own her own business. This is also where Amy learned the “ins & outs” of running a business. From accounting, to personnel, ordering and selling…she took it all in and hoped that she had what it took to do it on her own. After meeting her husband Andy, they both realized that they had the same dream but knew that they DID NOT want to stay in the Midwest to do it. They visited Tampa and knew it was the perfect fit for them. So with daughter Avery in tow they loaded up their lives and made the cross country move.
Once in Tampa they sought out a business opportunity. They both knew that they wanted to open a bar or bar/grille… it is something that they both had a passion for and knew that their outgoing personalities and hands on/work hard attitude would lend well to that industry. The Jones found a bar in the up-scale area of Westchase. Once they purchased The Oak Room they kept the bar open while transforming it into the bar that they wanted and then changed the name to Remedy Bar & Lounge. Though Andy had never worked in the bar industry he took to it immediately. Soaking it all in and learning all he could about running the bar and becoming quite the bartender in the meanwhile. They owned and operated the bar for just over 2 years but came to realize that owning just a bar was not for them and no longer fit their lifestyle. They wanted something more family oriented and challenging, so they sold Remedy in December.
From this journey BrewTown Burgers was created – a one-of-a-kind gastropub that’s family friendly in Lutz, FL. More than just gourmet burgers, BTB features specialty dishes with a midwestern flare. It’s comfort food in a fun sports bar that’s appropriate for all ages.
The Jones believe that great food in a fun atmosphere with OUTSTANDING customer focus and care will be the keys to make their new endeavor a success.
