Maudlin International (Website) is applying for a variance from the Board of Zoning Adjustment to erect a 54 foot tall, two-sided 80 SF roof sign on their new building, to be built on the former home of Merita Bread.

The Merita Bread building was demolished in August, 2015, which we wrote about HERE. The iconic sign is currently part of the neon sign collection owned by the Charles Hosmer Morse Museum of American Art in Winter Park.

Maudlin International, plans to build a 77,600 SF truck dealership and service center on the land, with parking and display areas, all adjacent to Interstate 4. The aforementioned sign will be installed on the west side of the development.

For more details on the project, see the slideshow below.
