Tampa-based Ford’s Garage is planning to open outposts in Lakeland and Orlando. No date on either, but Lakeland has started hiring for its location at 879 Lakeland Park Center Dr, so I’m estimating a summer 2018 opening. The menu specializes in craft burgers, salads, and sides.

Rubio’s Coastal Grill in Winter Park has shuttered, as of April 22. No reason was given. The brand still has their recently opened location in Lake Nona (9971 Tagore Place) as their only Orlando-area location.
