Following calls from protestors, the Broward County Commission has rename “Dykes Road” as “Diced Road.” The new name was reportedly chosen because of its phonetic similarity to the controversial roadway and in recognition of the new location of Diced Food. Diced’s CEO Otto Perez reportedly paid handsomely for the honor, outbidding other proposals to name the road “Burger King Lane” and “Subway Way.”
Dykes Road, famously named after Southwest Ranches Maurice Dyke, has been the subject of much controversy in recent years given the pejorative modern meaning of the name, which was reportedly causing chuckles from the immature. A representative from the Dyke family was apparently very upset by the decision but eventually agreed to support the name change after receiving several hundred dollars in gift certificates to Diced Restaurant good for a variety of healthy bowls and wraps.
“Diced is so committed to bringing healthy food to Pembroke Pines that it renamed the whole road,” said Mr. Perez as three of Maurice Dyke’s grandchildren stuffed their faces with free whole-wheat wraps.
“We think this will really get our name out there. We opened Diced with a vision of serving wholesome food that you could eat every day. We’re excited to bring that vision to Dykes Road, I mean Diced Road.
Diced’s new location is 15951 Pines Blvd Pembroke Pines, FL 33027. Mention “Diced Road” and get 20% off your purchase until June 30, 2019.
