Eat Mor Chikin at a new Chik-fil-A on the old Perkins Restaurant site or enjoy fine cuisine and live jazz at the 727 Restaurant and Jazz Club in European Village.
Palm Coast, FL – May 8, 2014 – Add another national chain restaurant and a new home grown one to your dining choices in Palm Coast. Chick-fil-A has submitted a proposed site plan to Palm Coast for a new restaurant on the northwest corner of Palm Coast Pkwy and Boulder Rock Dr, previously occupied by a Perkins Family Restaurant. And Frank Demaio, owner of the popular 386 Restaurant on A1A in the Hammock will open the 727 Restaurant/Jazz Club in European Village next week.
The new Chick-fil-A will not arrive soon. The submitted plans will have to go through the city’s review, approval and permitting process. Then we will have to wait for construction of the proposed new building.
Chick-fil-A is well known for the company’s bovine-delivered “Eat Mor Chikin” advertising theme and its “Closed on Sunday” policy. Headquartered in Atlanta, Chick-fil-A has steadily grown to become the second largest quick-service chicken restaurant chain in the United States, with over 1,700 locations in 39 states and Washington, D.C. In 2012, annual sales were over $4.6 billion. Chick-fil-A is still privately held and family owned.
The 386 (our area code) Restaurant on A1A has quickly developed a loyal following. 386 owner, Frank Demaio, has extensive experience operating restaurants in Arizona, N.J. and N.Y. As manager of operations for 727 Restaurant/Jazz Club owner, Tiffany Burkhalter, Frank promises “a fusion of fine eating,” with fresh ingredients, full liquor bar and live jazz for sophisticated adults. 727’s executive chef is Casey Ford, formerly associated with Rose Villa and Le Crepe restaurants in Ormond Beach.
727 will have a “Soft Opening” next week Wednesday and Thursday. The Friday, May 16th Grand Opening will feature classic New Orleans-style five-piece jazz group Hot House. Hours will be Wed and Thursday 5 pm to 10 pm and 5 pm to midnight on Friday and Saturday. Reservations are highly recommended. They can be made on line at https://www.jazz727.com/reservations.html or by calling 386-627-8305. 727 is located just inside the main entrance to European Village.
