ORLANDO, Fla. – As Orlando’s long-planned Packing District takes shape, the most unique feature — a replica of Dr. Phillips’ juice stand — will soon be occupied by three well-known Central Florida food vendors.

Dr. Phillips Charities, the organization behind the construction of the Packing District, announced that Foxtail Coffee, Kelly’s Homemade Ice Cream and Ravenous Pig Brewing Company will be setting up shop inside the juice stand replica.

The juice stand sits near the intersection of Orange Blossom Trail and Princeton Avenue, not far from The Cannery at the Packing District, an apartment complex. That complex was the first project to break ground back in 2019 with more housing at market rate to follow.

A new YMCA, a Publix supermarket and a food hall are all in the works for the Packing District. Nearby, John Rivers is building a 40-acre farm and educational facility just off of John Young Parkway.

The Packing District’s name comes from the fact that area was the former site of one of Dr. Phillips’ citrus production plants.

Kenneth Robinson, the president and CEO of Dr. Phillips Charities, said it could take up to 15 years to finish the $1 billion construction project.
