Scramblers is building-out in Deerwood Village Mall now that the city issued a permit to renovate space in the Deerwood/Baymeadows area for one of the company’s first area restaurants.
The city issued a permit Aug. 30 for Skyline Construction Inc. to renovate a 3,318-square-foot space at 9940 Old Baymeadows Road for Scramblers at a cost of $550,414.
Scramblers Director of Franchising Kelly Buerk said June 30 the Toledo, Ohio-based company is committed to open five restaurants in the Jacksonville area.
The breakfast and lunch restaurant will open its first two Jacksonville locations in Deerwood Village Mall and at 1500 University Blvd W. in Lakewood South.
They will be first two Scramblers in Florida and are corporate-owned.
“Florida is a dynamite area for a Scramblers,” Buerk said by email.
Colliers Senior Associate Jason K. Hinson represents Scramblers in the area.
Hinson said previously after the first two open, Scramblers will look for more sites, including in Duval and St. Johns counties.
Scramblers has 24 locations in Ohio and two in Michigan. It is franchising to expand.
It operates 6:30 a.m.- 3 p.m. daily. The menu includes breakfast and lunch, including omelets, egg dishes, pancakes, sandwiches, salads and more.
