UPDATE: A hospital spokesperson has informed us that while the hospital owns the land, the adjacent Comfort Suites Downtown currently holds a ground lease on the entire parcel, and it will be up to them as to what happens next on that property.
As you can read HERE via our friends at Orlando Magazine, this specific location of Wendy’s was prohibited from serving any pork products on its menu due to restrictions in its lease with its landlord, the Adventist Health System, and Seventh-Day Adventists abstain from pork as they consider it “unclean.”
A spokesperson for the fast-food restaurant couldn’t be located at the time of this post for a quote but the last time we had covered the location was back in 2020 when it ran out of meat. Well, not all meat, as they still had “small meat” available, whatever that is. And I only mess with the big meat.
Adventist Health is currently developing most of the surrounding lots with more dense developments.
