A daiquiri and wings restaurant is in the works for Paris.
Nestled inside the old Subway building in downtown Paris, DAQ’Z Crazy & Wing’z is set to open later this summer.
Paris High School graduate and Dallas Police Officer Raphyael Tyson said he has wanted to do something like this for a few years now.
“The idea came when I went off to college at SAU, where daiquiri shops are big,” Tyson said. “When I left school, I went to Dallas to work and I knew I wanted to do something like this in Paris; Something that would be different.”
Tyson said he has already received most of the required permits from the city.
“We just need to get the beer and wine license, which is 60 days, so I’ll be able to serve the daiquiris around Aug. 4, 2019,” he said.
Tyson said the restaurant will offer 33 flavors of wings, both in dry rubs and wet, along with 12 different flavors of daiquiris.
“We’ll have nine flavors that remain the same and we’ll change out three of them,” he said. “You’ll be able to mix and match to create an endless amount of flavors.”
The hiring process, he said, will begin mid-July with open interviews.
No exact opening date has yet been set.
