RICHARD GONZMART

President – Columbia Restaurant Group

4th Generation Family Member

Richard Gonzmart is the great-grandson of Casimiro Hernandez, Sr., the founder of the world-famous Columbia Restaurant in Tampa’s Historic Ybor City. Founded in 1905, the Columbia is the oldest restaurant in Florida, and the largest Spanish restaurant in the world. 

Under Richard’s direction, the Columbia has expanded from two locations to seven. He also is responsible for the creation of Cha Cha Coconuts in Sarasota.  In August 2014, Richard opened a restaurant called Ulele, located on the Hillsborough River. A second location opened at Tampa International Airport in 2017.

In August 2016 Richard opened Goody Goody™ Burgers. A Tampa landmark since 1925 and closed since 2005, the iconic Goody Goody™ restaurant was reborn under his direction in Tampa’s Hyde Park Village. A second location opened at Tampa International Airport in 2017.  Richard’s newest concept, Café con Leche Ybor City, opened in 2017 at Tampa International Airport, serving coffee from Naviera Coffee Mills, Cuban toast and sandwiches.
