Group of diners toast to the grand opening of Cooper's Hawk

Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants, a lifestyle brand and one of the nation’s fastest growing upscale casual dining restaurants, brings its unique concept to Fort Myers, Florida with its new location slated to open in spring 2023.

“Fort Myers, Florida has grown significantly over the past few years and continues to gain a national reputation as a destination for fine-dining experiences, making it a natural fit for the Cooper’s Hawk brand,” Founder Tim McEnery said. “The year-round beautiful weather, scenic surroundings and its residents’ active lifestyle were also very appealing.”

Slated to open in spring 2023, the Fort Myers restaurant on Six Mile Cypress Parkway near Daniels Parkway is the privately-owned company’s second Southwest Florida location and its 55th nationwide.

Each Cooper’s Hawk location offers wine tasting, a wine club, a wine shop with wines and accessories, and an expansive eating area suitable for both leisurely dining and business meetings. The menu features dishes that pair naturally with Cooper’s Hawk wines. While well-established throughout the Midwest, Cooper’s Hawk also has locations from Michigan to Florida, along the East Coast.

Cooper’s Hawk will be hiring more than 100 employees for jobs ranging from cooks to key management positions at the Fort Myers location, which currently is under development at 13671 Olympic Court in Fort Myers. Full-time and part-time positions are available, including kitchen staff, houseworkers, tasting room attendants, servers, hosts and bartenders.

The hiring office is now open at 6900 Daniels Parkway, Fort Myers. Applicants should have a passion for customer service, and a love and understanding of fine wine and food.

Founder Tim McEnery opened the first winery and full restaurant in Orland Park, Illinois in 2005.


Founded in 2005 by CEO Tim McEnery, Cooper’s Hawk Winery & Restaurants is built upon the belief that food and wine hold the power to forge lasting connections. Cooper’s Hawk is a lifestyle brand centered around wine and focused on creating memorable moments that enrich lives. The concept is a fusion of familiar elements – modern casual restaurant, Napa-style tasting room, and artisanal retail market – that has combined to create an entirely new hospitality experience.
