Plans show that Chipotle Mexican Grill intends to open in the Lakewood area by renovating a closed Whataburger restaurant on 3860 University Blvd. W.
The city is currently considering a permit application for an estimated $ 400,000 worth of indoor and outdoor changes to the $ 400,000 restaurant built in 2004.
Colorado LLC’s Chipotle Mexican Grill is listed as a restaurant owner.
Tyler Benson, external communications analyst at Chipotle’s Newport Beach, Calif. Headquarters, said via email on April 5 that the company has no planned location, but “we always strive to bring our food to great new communities with integrity. “
As of December 31, Chipotle Mexican Grill Inc. operated more than 2,750 restaurants in the United States, Canada, the United Kingdom, France, and Germany. It operates 10 locations in the Jacksonville area.
Neptune Beach-based 3860 WUNIV LCC paid $ 1.15 million for the closed Whataburger in September. State corporate records show the LLC includes Brian Platock and Al Mansur.
Platock is a retail real estate specialist and manager of Florida Retail Group LLC.
Mansur owns Al’s Pizza and other concepts.
Platock and Mansur said they had no comment on Chipotle and referred questions to the company.
They said they own the building and are negotiating with an unknown tenant.
