“Our construction journey is almost complete, and very soon, we’ll be unveiling the official opening dates that you’ve all been waiting for,” reads a statement from the company issued through social media.

The new business is owned by Xavier Marquez and Elijah Schoonard, who both moved from different states to bring “a new experience to Ocala,” according to the company.
