New to Orlando? Grand Lux!

Heard the Cheesecake Factory Execs were in town last couple of days and supposedly may announce that a Grand Lux Cafe would be coming to the area in the near future. Any truth to the rumor, or just that........rumors??

  1. Rumor has been around for a year. Orlando's problem for these upscale casual chains is that the best dirt is already leased. Finding a good location can take a year to two years and they won't come to town until they have a great location.
    They -- and a dozen others -- have constant feelers out with every commercial broker in Central Florida, just waiting for a spot.
