New vegan eatery Winter Park Biscuit Company will open in early Summer 2020 in Orlando, FL. Founded by Nom Yourself founder and cookbook author Mary Westfall (née Mattern), along with partner Neil Westfall of rock band A Day to Remember, Winter Park Biscuit Company will offer vegan versions of familiar comfort food dishes such as chicken and biscuit sandwiches, burgers, French fries, sausage gravy and biscuits, seasonal fruit shortcakes, and crab cake sandwiches.
The couple met while Mary was a personal chef to Blink-182 drummer Travis Barker and Neil was on the tour with A Day to Remember. The Westfalls founded Winter Park Biscuit Company as a pop-up restaurant two years ago and, after much success, they began their search for a brick-and-mortar location. “We’ve been doing pop-ups for a couple of years now and it has always been the goal to eventually become a brick and mortar,” Westfall told VegNews. “A space became available in East End Market and it seems like an incredibly natural choice for us to call home. We love Orlando and are grateful to be part of the community.” Orlando’s East End Market showcases some of central Florida’s top food entrepreneurs, makers, artisans, and chefs in a two-story space.
