The Scoop on the New Hyde Park in Tampa Bay!


Our next guest on the program was Gabby Soriano, Marketing Director with Hyde Park Village which is owned by WS Development. Hyde Park Village, located on Swann Ave in South Tampa, is a booming area right now with new Restaurants Goody Goody and On Swann recently opening and much more development in the Village on the horizon. Jamie, along with co-host Stella Giudicelli, talked about the shops and appeal of the community which is anchored by many stores including L.A. Fitness and Timpanos as well as the CineBistro! The development is poised to become a huge attraction in South Tampa, successfully rebounding from the downturn result from the opening of the International Plaza which is also discussed on this segment. There is still some vacancy too in the Village so if you are a business owner looking for an entry point into South Tampa, consider Hyde Park Village as an option.

Closing out the show was Kara Barr, Owner of Whiskey Bent Barbeque Supply located at 2401 Merchant Ave in Odessa, Florida. This company is your one-stop shop for anything and everything related to barbequing. Kara opened the location just over 6 months ago and sales are booming with this niche business. From sauces and rubs to grills and aprons, they have anything you need to have a great barbeque! The business, franchised and founded out of Lakeland, is a unique concept and Jamie elaborates on how he wishes he knew of the store earlier. Many people pick up barbeque supplies from their local grocer but Whiskey Bent takes it to the next level. They have over 120 sauces in stock and top of the line grills plus they give classes on how to barbeque! BBQ is an art form. As such it is open to much interpretation. A true connoisseur is always looking for new ways to perfect his or her craft. For that reason, Whiskey Bent – Odessa hosts BBQ classes that teach new skills and tricks from competitors who practice their craft at competitions across the country.  They have an upcoming customer appreciation day this weekend and Kara stresses the family environment in the store, how they know their customers by name. Find them online at or give them a call today at 727-375-1901!
