The business will officially open its doors on Saturday, February 12 at 11 a.m. At 2 p.m., Crave will host a hot dog eating contest beginning that costs $10 to enter.

The restaurant’s menu showcases a variety of sandwiches, wings, and hot dogs, which can be covered with over a dozen and a half unique toppings. Pulled chicken, pulled pork, and smoked brisket are also available through plates or by the pound.

In addition to a variety of food options, Crave offers a large selection of craft beers.

Although there are a handful of Crave restaurants that are fully operational throughout the country, the majority are still under construction.

That includes five other restaurant locations across Florida in Lakeland, Jacksonville, Apopka, Venice, and Ocala. In addition to brick and mortar buildings, some Crave franchisees have opted to operate food trucks.
