Wood Ranch now operates 13 “premium-casual” full-service restaurants in California; the newest addition recently opened in the city of Ventura. They “do it better” by slow roasting their tri-tip, ribs and chicken over-night, then heating up the grill and slathering on the sauce in a unique, two-step cooking process. The first Wood Ranch was a “cocktail napkin business plan” dreamt up by Eric Anders and Ofer Shemtov, who met while working in Los Angeles restaurants.
