Foghorn’s Wings will soon move from its original location on College Avenue to a larger space just down the road.

Restaurant owner Jeff Hodges has purchased the building at 1815 N. Green Acres Road (formerly Mermaids), and plans to renovate the space in time to move sometime this Spring.

“That original space has been great for us, but it’s small,” Hodges said. “We’re excited to move into that building that will match our Baum Stadium location (at 1545 W. 15th Street) a little bit better.”

Hodges plans to purchase the building just north of the new space as well, but will continue to lease to the current tenants and will utilize the parking behind it for employees.

An expansion project on his other restaurant near Baum Stadium in South Fayetteville will also begin soon, and could be finished by February.

“We’re taking over the space next door, and we’ll be able to add seating for about 75 more people over there,” he said.

Closing on the purchase of the Green Acres Road space is set for Nov. 30, and Hodges hopes to move into the building sometime in April.
