    Looks like a Zaxby's/Raisin' Canes clone. Those seem to do well, nothing wrong with Tim flexing his business acumen if he believes in the product.

    Nothing at all wrong with it. Remember the parable of the talents.

    Jeff Kamis, former UF Sports info and Bucs PR is head of marketing there. Happy for everyone that it seems to be taking off.

    Hell yeah they're good. So happy to have a great chick fil a alternative on Sundays when I usually crave something like that. Buffalo bleu chicken tender sammich is the best!

    I'm surprised Timmy isn't a spokes person or something for chick fil a...

    Usually restaurants are a bad investment, especially for a pro athlete that typically knows little about running a business. But in Timmy's case, once word gets out that he is an investor, and he does a little advertising, people will come in to check it out and will come back if the food & service are good.

    wish he would'v put it in jax beach instead of in town. beach is a much better spot for places like that. however i have heard its not as good as chick fil a (which is hard to do because chickfila is simply the best in fast food). maybe i will go there on a sunday and check it out.

    There is one in Wesley Chapel and I think it is every bit as good as Chik-fil-a. It is always packed. I think if located in the proper spot it will be quite successful.
