We bugged Tracy from Roque Pub (3076 Curry Ford Rd.) with some questions. We can't talk about Curry Ford West without mentioning Tracy in the same breath! She has done a lot for our community as a business owner.
How long has your business been in the Curry Ford West neighborhood?
We just had our 8-year anniversary on 2/18! Seems like only yesterday..ish.
What is a fun fact about your business that not everyone might know?
Being a woman-owned business; something like a woman-owned bar isn't around as much as there could be! I also had a baby 2 weeks before we opened! If I could survive that, I feel like I could survive anything.
What made you want to open a pub?
Couple reasons, but my husband and I worked at bars and restaurants most of our lives and we had a different vision of what one could be. We wanted to make a place where we'd want to hang out, which this neighborhood didn't really have at the time.
What is another business in Curry Ford West that is one of your favorite spots?
What is one of your top spots in all of Orlando, outside of our neighborhood?
What is the best time a customer can stop by and get to meet you?
Every day! Any time after lunch you will find me in here! Stop by!
