Beef O'Brady's Bowl
Jim Mellody moved from his native Pennsylvania to Florida in 1971, and tried numerous restaurant ideas before hitting on the concept of a family friendly Irish pub theme. Founded in 1985, by August 2000 it had grown to 40 locations. When founder Mellody died in November 2002, the chain had grown to 88 locations within seven southeastern U.S. states, and by December 2005 it had 183 locations in 19 states.
In 1998, Mellody sold most of his interest to Family Sports Concepts Inc., headed by Chuck Winship, but retained an interest in 13 locations. After Mellody's death, the remaining interest was bought out. As of 2009, Mellody's daughter still ran the original Brandon location.
In early April 2010, CEO Chuck Winship retired from Beef 'O' Brady's, and was replaced by Chris Elliot former executive of Cinnabon and Church's Chicken.
As of January 2011, the Beef O Brady's franchise has 215 locations in many different states, which are mostly located in the Gulf/Southern Coast of the United States.
In October 2012, Beef O Brady's was ranked in the top 12 worst SBA loan failure rates.
