Clearwater-based seafood joint Frenchy’s is opening another restaurant in the Tampa Bay area, but this new location— technically doesn't have a location.
Frenchy’s is investing in a first-of-its kind hybrid ghost kitchen that delivers its fresh seafood dishes throughout the greater Pinellas Area.
The new ghost kitchen concept dubbed “Frenchy’s To Go” will be located near the intersection of 580 and US19, resting in between Clearwater and Palm Harbor. It will be dedicated to fulfilling multiple online food delivery partners; customers can pick up their online Frenchy’s orders or get it delivered to them.
If you can’t make it to one of the five Frenchy’s restaurants throughout the Tampa Bay area, soon you can get its popular grouper sandwiches delivered right to your door. “Frenchy’s To Go” is expected to be up and running by early 2020.
“We take a lot of pride in our history and the quality of our food” namesake and founder Michael “Frenchy” Preston said in an official statement. “To venture into this market while meeting the expectations built into our brand, it has to be done right.”
The trend of ghost kitchens seems to be on the rise throughout the greater Tampa Bay restaurant, with Tampa chefs Rosana Rivera and Ricardo Castro announcing the launch of their delivery-only restaurant earlier this week.
