Another chain is coming to Tampa Bay. This one though isn’t one transplants may recognize. The open locations for this one are already right here in Florida. “Bolay Fresh Bold Kitchen” is opening two Tampa Bay locations in 2021. The chain serves customized bowls filled with chicken, steak, shrimp, tofu or pork mixed with specialty sauces. It looks pretty similar to Fresh Kitchen, which is already up and running on 4th Street in St. Pete. The Tampa Bay Times reports Bolay was launched by Tim Gannon, one of the co-founders of Outback Steakhouse.
The Brandon location will open first at 1544 West Brandon Boulevard on May 11. The Times says there will be $15,000 worth of food prizes at the grand opening. The St. Petersburg location will follow with an opening sometime in September. The location of that restaurant has yet to be announced. Bolay is currently open in Palm Beach Gardens, Boca Raton, Coral Springs, Gainesville, Jupiter, and Miami according to their website. [Source: TBT]
