The new restaurant will be replacing one that closed several months ago.
Keith Comer of Jacksonville bought a building permit Wednesday for a new 52-seat restaurant, said City Clerk Shane Smith.
Comer was unavailable for comment. However Smith said Comer was the owner of the old Subway, based in the Shell Station on Almon Street. Comer was forced to close the restaurant when the station closed almost a year ago, Smith said.
The new restaurant also will be located on Almon Street between the Post Office and the Hardee’s Restaurant, Smith said. The restaurant will not have a drive through. It is scheduled to open in six to eight months, he said.
