Grub coming to Jax

Add another new-to-market restaurant to the collection of businesses coming to the Town Center.

According to Jax Daily Record, Grub Burger Bar will be coming to The Strand at Town Center early next year.

The chain is based in Texas, and has been looking into expanding into the Jax area for a few years now. It specializes in burgers, as you may have guessed from the name.

Springfield updates

A couple of items coming from the fast-growing Springfield neighborhood:

The Cured Nail has signed a lease to open at 3rd and Main, and is expected to be open by September according to the property’s landlord.

Meanwhile, the building at 1st and Main is being converted into an event space, with plans later on down the line to include a restaurant and bar. There are also plans for a farmers market in an adjacent lot.
