Judd Martin, 59, has been selling barbecue for years in Akron, and his new place at 2329 Romig Road in Akron is a homecoming of sorts.
After cooking for employers, he opened a barbecue stand years ago at the now former Rolling Acres Mall. The not-yet-completed Amazon facility stands where the mall used to be.
“The Lord put me in the right place at the right time,” Martin aid last weekend when I stopped in to see the place, and pick up some pork ribs to go.
Martin has been looking for something to open up in the Akron area, and earlier this year he drove down Romig and saw the building. Originally a Denny’s restaurant, the building had most recently been a wings place.
Martin’s last restaurant was on South Arlington Street in Akron. He shut that down several years ago. Martin said he was stressed at the time, and a relative advised that she believed God wanted him to close.
He then worked for a time for a company that makes and delivers meals to senior centers and other facilities across Northeast Ohio.
But Martin didn’t stop barbecuing. He sold his smoked ribs from a concession trailer, setting up on weekends at a car lot at 32 N. Case Ave.
While he’s concentrating on his restaurant for now, he hopes to sign up others to sell ribs from trailers.
Fans on Facebook are happy to see him barbecuing at his own eatery again.
“See that big red smoker out there. That’s where the magic happens,” said his wife, Monica, of the homemade smoker in the front parking lot of the restaurant. Judd’s is next to the Habitat for Humanity of Summit County ReStore.
