About the Founder of Goodwood Firewood
Robert Wild Goodale
When in college even cooked and heated dwellings with wood. Leaving college in the late 70’s found himself in Chicago with a fireplace, but No Seasoned Firewood.
With a couple of friends and free firewood ( except the cutting and splitting) started processing firewood in the Wisconsin Dells. After long weekends of camping and cutting wood slowly brought to Chicago.
Using backyards, dead end alleys even under CTA tracks stocked firewood and sold it as if they did not sell it quickly, it would be stolen.
Finally the wood yards were established selling firewood late summer for the holidays and winter. After a few years of this new business, which he liked, realized to make it go year round. The Restaurants needed wood, mainly the mom and pop African American BBQ houses. No brick ovens yet. So he now could cut and immediately sell green heavy smoking woods without the stacking and watching it season.
Goodwood was the first firewood company to deliver to some of Chicago’s famous old bbq houses as we all know these long established restaurants Robinson’s, Leona’s and Joe’s who still have locations in the city and suburbs.
Sadly Santa left us in 2013. Now his brothers and daughter have made Goodwood Firewood one of the oldest Firewood companies in the Chicago and suburbs.
