PANAMA CITY BEACH, Fla. (WMBB) — Mexican bar and restaurant chain Señor Frog’s is making its way to Bay County.
The restaurant will take the place of Hang Five, which announced its closure on social media earlier this month.
Señor Frog’s features Mexico-style food and a variety of alcoholic beverages.
The chain is well-known for its destinations in Mexico and the Bahamas, but it has a few other locations in the United States.
Panama City Beach Councilman Geoff McConnell said they’re excited about the new business and the benefits that will come with it.
“It’s always good to have a national company come in and recognize your community as a place where they want to do business and invest in the community and outlying areas,” McConnell said. “It’s going to bring in some good jobs.”
Hang Five’s Facebook post said Señor Frog’s will be keeping some special dishes, including its renowned Key lime pie, on the menu.
The restaurant is set to open in March. According to a Facebook post, the restaurant is now hiring.
