Pico de Gallo Mexican Grill Expanding in Downtown Avalon Park

Pico de Gallo Mexican Grill Expanding in Downtown Avalon Park

New Location to Open Summer 2022


Orlando, FL (April 7, 2022) – Avalon Park Group announced today that Pico de Gallo has leased 2,500 SF of restaurant space at 13001 Founder’s Square Drive, Suite 100, Orlando, FL 32828, in the Clock Tower of Downtown Avalon Park and is slated to open July 2022.

Pico de Gallo has been the 13-year vision of long-time Avalon Park residents, Jorge and Heidi Cardona-Lopez, along with family support by sister Heisell Alarcon and niece Nazareth Orozco.  The vision came to life when they opened as one of the original vendors in the Marketplace at Avalon Park food hall in September 2021.  Their expansion into a larger space in Avalon Park will allow for outdoor seating and an expanded menu.

“The community has welcomed us with open arms,” said Lopez.  “I cannot wait to share our new expanded menu with our new neighbors.”

The move to the Clock Tower will expand their cafeteria-style menu to include mix and match options from bowls to burritos and tacos, with various meats and traditional sides, like rice and beans, and chips and salsa.  Additionally, there are plans to add a Colombian Bakery Café in honor of Jorge’s heritage, which brings a rich mixture of flavors, color and taste to the menu.  Some menu items will include Pan de Bono, Bunuelo, Picada Columbiana, empanadas, and arepas.

“I am always pleased to hear of the continued success of long-time residents and quadruple stakeholders that live, learn, work and play in Avalon Park,” says Beat Kahli, President and CEO of Avalon Park Group. “The entire family is a prime example of working hard and realizing the American Dream.”
