Culver’s opening Jan. 11 at Collins Town Center

The Southwest Jacksonville location is the second for the ButterBurger and custard restaurant chain.

Franchisee Petar Stamov intends to open the area’s second Culver’s restaurant at 10:30 a.m. Jan. 11 at Collins Road and Interstate 295.

Stamov said Jan. 10 the operating hours will be 10:30 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily. The restaurant, at 7923 Parramore Road, employs 80 people.

Stamov said the location will seat 20 people outside and because of COVID-19 distancing restrictions, 50 inside.

“This is my first one,” Stamov said. “If everything goes well, I want to open more here. It’s a growing city.”

GPZ Solutions LLC, led by Stamov,  is the franchisee for the 3,546-square-foot Culver’s restaurant in Collins Town Center in southwest Jacksonville.

Harmony Farms of Jacksonville L.L.C. sold the 1.04-acre site to GPZ Solutions on June 25 for $1.055 million.

The city issued a building permit April 27 at a construction cost of $1.45 million.

Another franchise group opened the area’s first Culver’s in July 2019 in Middleburg and intends to open its second about Aug. 1 along Gate Parkway in Jacksonville.

Franchisees also are working on locations in Arlington; in Yulee in Nassau County; and in St. Johns County.

 Wisconsin-based Culver’s features ButterBurgers, frozen custard and cheese curds and has several more sites in review.

Real estate broker Clint Murphy, president of Jacksonville-based Murphy Land and Retail Services Inc., represents Culver’s in its area site search.
