PLANT CITY -

Fred Johnson is expanding his small chain of restaurants.

Johnson, whose family founded BuddyFreddys, is opening up a Fred's Southern Kitchen in Riverview this month at Krycul Avenue and U.S. 301. The exterior of the old Fubar's nightclub building has been completely changed, and the gutted interior is under renovation.

Word has it that the porch will come stocked with Fred's signature rocking chairs, for relaxing before or after a meal.

Johnson, whose family no longer owns BuddyFreddys, operates restaurants in Plant City, Bartow, Lakeland and Winter Haven.
