Daily mom expects to move to new headquarters in Southpoint in 2022 | Jax daily record | Jacksonville Daily Record
First Coast Energy LLP, the parent company of Daily’s convenience store chain, plans to renovate and move into a new headquarters in Southside by the end of 2022.
The company paid $ 3.025 million on May 14 for a 37,850-square-foot, single-story Southpoint building at 6867 Southpoint Drive N. Developed in 1991, it sits on 4 acres.
Marketing Director Max Glober said on June 4 that the area is larger than the 23-year-old existing location while remaining in the same general area.
It provides space for a communal kitchen for First Coast Energy to develop and test concepts for the Daily’s Dash food service and storage space.
“We decided to buy this building because it is centrally located,” said Glober.
“We like to stick to the Southpoint area,” he said, referring to Interstate 95 and Butler Boulevard.
Glober said the company has rented its current premises, which include office, warehouse and some kitchen functions, since 1998 at 7014 AC Skinner Parkway, # 290 in Liberty Business Park.
First Coast Energy paid $ 3.025 million on May 14 for a 37,850-square-foot, single-story Southpoint building at 6867 Southpoint Drive N.
First Coast Energy bought the Southpoint building from South State Bank, a successor through merger to CenterState Bank.
CenterState took over the property in March 2020 in a deed instead of foreclosure.
“We’re going to be doing some pretty extensive work on the building,” Glober said, but he had no estimate of the investment.
The city approved First Coast Energy June 4 to demolish the interior non-structural components, including the walls and ceiling, at a cost of $ 63,000.
C. &. R. General Contractors Inc. of Jacksonville is the demolition contractor.
First Coast Energy is led by President and CEO Aubrey Edge, who is also President of Petro Distributing Inc., which was founded in 1994 and shares headquarters.
Glober said about 100 people work at the headquarters, with a total workforce of 2,000 in the gas station and convenience store network, including 38 dailys and other Shell gas stations.
Most Northeast Florida Daily stores have dash cafes. Glober said First Coast Energy is considering adding this to the Southeast Florida Daily.
Dash’s fast-casual café concept sells breakfast and lunch sandwiches, subs, paninis, tacos, soups, salads, baked goods, ice cream and drinks, including coffee and smoothies.
First Coast Energy is also the title sponsor of the Daily’s Place Amphitheater adjacent to the TIAA Bank Field. As a Jacksonville Jaguars Jamboree partner, it has three Daily locations in the stadium
Daily’s also operates a 3425 N. Main St. Commission and warehouse along with a 48 foot long food truck.
The Daily truck drives at Jaguars Games, Daily’s Place and community events.
First Coast Energy also owns the Downtown property. It paid nearly $ 3.3 million on August 21 for the 1.4 acre block bordered by Forsyth, Jefferson, Bay and Broad Streets.
JEA considered a service availability request for First Coast Energy in 2020 to develop a gas station and supermarket for Daily on the site.
First Coast Energy runs The Daily’s Foundation to support charities in northeast Florida.
