Five Local Restaurants on the Verge of Major ExpansionsJuly 18, 2014 7 comments Print Article
Here's a brief look at five popular local restaurants with aggressive expansion plans over the next few months.
Maple Street Biscuit Company
This popular local restaurant was founded soon after Scott Moore and Gus Evans found themselves without jobs. To resolve that dilemma, Maple Street Biscuit Company was established in San Marco in 2012. According to Moore, they are always looking to expand. This week, they'll open their third restaurant in Murray Hill. In October, Maple Street will introduce its biscuits to Chattanooga, TN.
The Formula: Consistent Southern Comfort Food with a Modern Twist
Number of Locations: 3 (San Marco, Jacksonville Beach, Murray Hill)
Lunch for One: Under $10
Menu Highlights: Five & Dimes and Squawking Goats. All biscuits are made on site. Maple Street Biscuit Company also sells local honey and makes its own jam and jellies.
Tasting Notes: A trade mark of going to Maple Street Biscuit Company is how you get your food. Instead of being given a number or asked your name, customers are asked a quirky question like, "What's on your bucket list?"
