Pop Goes the Waffle will open its first brick and mortar location early next year at 5004 Tangerine Ave South, Gulfport. This location will feature expanded space for production and a small cafe where customers can enjoy waffles, pastries and beverages. Tahisha Scantling of Right Turn Realty represented Pop Goes the Waffle in the deal.
“We saw this building back in 2017 when we were trying to choose between physical location or food truck, so having it become available these years later when we were ready to scale up is kismet,” said founder and Chief Waffle Officer Sara Fludd.
The property is located just off the intersection of 49th St S and 18th Ave S, adjacent to Trolley Market Square and the Tangerine Avenue Parkway Trail. “The City of Gulfport has done a beautiful job of redeveloping this area and we are incredibly excited to start the next phase of our expansion in this hidden gem,” Fludd added.
Sara Fludd, owner of Pop Goes the Waffle, has built a mobile empire that continues to entice and enchant the taste buds of local residents.
You can find Fludd’s famous waffles at local spots like Southside Coffee Bar, Kahwa Coffee. These aren’t just ordinary waffles, either. Fludd has made varieties like the Hot Cheeto Waffle Dog, a Fruity Pebble-covered waffle, sweet waffle donuts, Bacon Cinnamon Bun Waffle Pops, and hearty handheld chicken and waffles.
