RUSKIN / SUN CITY CENTER, FL – Popeye’s Chicken held their Grand Opening today (Dec. 21, 2015) at 10:30 am located next to Denny’s at 3763 Sun City Center Blvd in Ruskin, FL.
I spoke with a nice gentleman on Dec. 19, the day they put the Grand Opening date on the sign, that said they had to remove the tall trees that ran along SR-674 due to the new electric poles that were installed. The original trees would have been too close to the wires.
The same gentleman, also, mentioned that they made the parking lot at the Ruskin location a little bigger than the Big Bend Riverview location.
One of the friendly landscapers said the owner had them plant small growing trees away from the power lines.
SUN CITY CENTER / SOUTHSHORE, FL – Dunkin’ Donuts & Baskin Robbins opened its doors on Saturday, September 26, 2015 on 717 Cypress Village Blvd. in Sun City Center, Florida – right next to Beef ‘O’Brady’s.
TAMPA, Fla – World’s Largest Food Truck Festival Ever 3 drew almost 75 food trucks on March 28-29 at the Florida State Fairgrounds.
This is the third year in the making, presented by Jeremy and Candy Gomez from Generation Food Truck along with staff from the Florida State Fairgrounds.
Last year’s Food Truck Festival made history by setting a Guinness World Record for the World’s Largest Food Truck Parade on March 29, 2014. Mr Gomez mentioned on Facebook that they, “had 202 food trucks from all over the country last year.”
This year’s event was more about the overall family experience and quality of the food rather than the number of trucks. Mr Gomez humbly wrote on Facebook, “No need to break our own record this year.”
This year the food trucks were comfortably spread out along the Fairgrounds. It was a family affair that included a fun zone for kids with inflatable slides, bounce houses and more.
On Saturday, there were over 13,000 people that attended the food event; Sunday’s count is still undetermined.
The event was wonderful and a special thanks to Jeremy and Candy for making this year’s event even better.
