One of the fastest growing local fast casual concepts gets nod from the State of Florida to start franchising. Last week, Jimmy Hula’s announced their approval to sell franchises in the State of Florida. The first Jimmy Hula’s officially opened in Winter Park Florida in March of 2011 with a second store following suit just a year later near the University of Central Florida.
“What we do at Jimmy Hula’s is unique and savvy entrepreneurs understand that. We’ve already sent out packages to interested parties and will be taking applications via our website,” says Jim Hartman, co- founder of the brand and president of Jimmy Hula’s licensing. The fast casual dining restaurant focuses on an eclectic variety of tacos and burgers inspired by Jimmy Hula’s surf travels across the globe. Jimmy Hula’s looks to target and develop locations in the Tampa, Jacksonville, and Daytona Beach markets in the not so distant future.
Jimmy Hula’s is the result of over 50 years of global travel, embracing local cultures while finding some of the best waves in the world. Everywhere Jimmy traveled, he brought back special recipes and practices to add to his arsenal of delicious eats. The “locals” as Jimmy Hula’s customers are called agree that they have the best fish tacos and the best burgers in Orlando.
