Strathmore Real Estate Group celebrates the Opening of McAlister’s Deli at its Riverview 14 Project located in the Tampa, Florida MSA. Franchisee Matthew Wortman had a soft opening on September 12th that featured Free Tea for a Year for the first 100 guests in line and a Grand Opening with nearly 1,200 guests on Friday, September 16, 2022. Wortman welcomed guests as he talked about his latest offering in the dining, shopping and entertainment district, where McAlister’s sits between the Cracker Barrel Old Country Store restaurant and a newly opening Woodie’s Wash Shack.
It’s Wortman’s second drive-thru restaurant franchise in the Tampa suburb of Gibsonton. He opened Zaxby’s Chicken in 2017 as one of the first dining alternatives for moviegoers to what was then the Goodrich Riverview 14 GDX cineplex. Now known as the AMC Riverview 14 theater, Matthew knew the project could support a couple of additional drive-thru restaurants and McAlister’s would be a terrific compliment.
Wortman called the center’s growth “phenomenal,” noting in particular that the movie theater “brings in a ton of traffic.” Shortly after the center opened, Zaxby’s, “a fan favorite for chicken fingers, wings and salads” opened, along with a combined Dunkin’ Donuts and Baskin-Robbins. The center today also includes the 124 room Extended Stay America hotel, several retailers including Dollar Tree, NY Nails, Cricket Wireless, Cracker Barrel, and Rosemary Grill.
