FORT MYERS, Fla. (June 15, 2015) – Rib City’s 13th corporate location in Florida will begin opening for lunch on Wednesday, June 17.

The new Rib City Daniels is located at 6830 Shoppes at Plantation Drive in Fort Myers and opened for dinner last week. This new location encompasses 3,000 square feet and has a seating capacity of 120.

Lunch hours are Monday through Sunday from 11 a.m. to 4 p.m., and dinner hours are Sunday through Thursday from 4 to 9 p.m., and Friday and Saturday from 4 to 10 p.m.

“We had a great opening week and were excited to see so many of our past Fiddlesticks’ customers for dinner, as well as many new faces,” said company President Craig Peden.

Founded in Fort Myers in 1989, Rib City is celebrating 26 years of operation in 2015. The national barbecue chain currently has 12 corporate restaurants in Florida with 10 locations in Southwest Florida and 17 franchise restaurants across the country including Florida, Washington, Utah, Colorado, Tennessee, Ohio, Illinois, Missouri and Virginia.

Rib City offers a menu of barbecued meats, specialized sauces and complementary side dishes, such as made-from-scratch baked beans and coleslaw. Rib City achieves authentic backyard barbecue flavor by slowly cooking baby back ribs and chicken over selected hardwoods, including Red Oak, carefully balancing heat and cooking time to seal in the distinctive Rib City BBQ taste. Meats can be topped with one of four secret recipe sauces: brown sugar-based sweet sauce, vinegar-based tangy sauce, Carolina mustard sauce and hot sauce. Additional menu items include fried okra, three-cheese fries, fried shrimp, coconut cream and Southern pecan pies, and more. Rib City’s complete menu is available online at

Rib City is listed with the Franchise Registry, a list of franchise systems whose franchisees have the benefits of a streamlined review process for U.S. Small Business Administration financings.
