Mills 50 hotspot Pig Floyd's already had a half-expansion in the works, partnering with Al Palo of Stasio's to work on the upcoming fusion pizza restaurant Pigzza. That wasn't enough for owner Thomas Ward, however. Now his original concept is taking over the original home of a another area barbecue titan.
Pig Floyd's second location will be in the former Winter Park location of Bubbalou's. The latter closed its doors earlier this year, citing a labor shortage (*cough* bullshit *cough*). Floyd's announced the news on Instagram, with a clip that showed the sign changing outside Bubbalou's before cutting to Ward signing documents.
The Instagram post also hinted at a drive-thru for the new location. Ward told Bungalower that the new location will be open in Spring 2022.
