A variety of new businesses have been sprouting up all along the Maricamp corridor in recent months. Waffle House will look to open a new location just south of the new Southern Pig and Cattle. Last month, Wawa opened its fifth location (3080 SE Maricamp Rd) to add to its growing collection in Ocala. In December, Papa Pineapples took over a location formerly occupied by Cup Of The Irish.
