Punta Gorda, Florida – April 10, 2024 – SVN Commercial Partners (“SVNCP”), the exclusive leasing agent at Fishermen’s Village Retail, announced that a new restaurant concept called Leroy’s Fish Shack will be opening in late 2024 in Fishermen’s Village.  This restaurant will be the second local concept in addition to the already successful Downtown location, Leroy’s Southern Kitchen & Bar. The new location will replace the former Village Fish Market which closed in April of 2023.

Both Leroy’s concepts are led by co-owners Lee Richardson and Mike Wright, along with their families – Jamie, Miguel & Rylee Richardson, Kylee, and Finn Wright. The group envisions the restaurant will pay tribute to the area’s history, creating an atmosphere that resonates with locals and visitors. This waterfront coastal-themed venture promises to carry forward the same spirit of excellence and hospitality that has made its predecessor a beloved culinary destination.

“We’re thrilled to bring Leroy’s to Fishermen’s Village,” said Lee Richardson, co-owner of Leroy’s Fish Shack. “Our families are growing up in Charlotte County, and we’re excited to open a restaurant that reflects the spirit of our community. Leroy’s Fish Shack will be a place where families, friends, and neighbors can come together to enjoy delicious seafood on the water and create lasting memories.”

SVNCP assembled a diverse team to market the available restaurant space including Ashley Bloom, Margeaux McCarthy, Corrie Gates, and Bryan Myers. “Our team is proud to bring the Leroy’s concept to Fishermen’s Village”, stated Managing Partner, Ashley Bloom. “Margeaux McCarthy was brought into the assignment due to her deep local knowledge of the Punta Gorda Market and delivered a highly complementary tenant to the Fishermen’s Village community.”

This announcement comes on the heels of the closing of The Pier Restaurant. SVNCP will launch a marketing campaign to fill the space along with contacting the interested parties who had previously looked at the former Village Fish Market space. SVNCP intends to have the space tenanted in the near future based on the demand for the entire project.
