The CBD’s forthcoming food hall Pythian Market has announced two of its vendors. Local rolling sandwich slinger Frencheeze food truck will put down more permanent roots in the building next year. Additionally Frencheeze owner, Jason King plans to open a new juice bar concept called Squeezed in Pythian Market that will serve salads, smoothies and fresh juices.
King, a Boston native, launched his food truck business in New Orleans in 2012, but says that since then the scene has become crowded. “It’s a great location,” King says of the market in a release. “Another reality is that the food truck scene is getting saturated and this allows us to go into the part of the CBD that doesn’t allow food trucks.” The food hall development also offers a similar feel to a food truck rally, notes King, with the added benefit of “tables and air conditioning.”
Part of a mixed-use redevelopment, the market at 234 Loyola Ave. will feature 19 vendors. The freshly renovated Pythian is expected to debut in 2017. Stay tuned.
