Maple Street Biscuit Company to Open in Gainesville

MapleStreetBiscuitMaple Street Biscuit Company, voted one of the Best New Biscuit Spots in the country by Food & Wine Magazine, will soon be opening their first Gainesville location in the first quarter of 2016. Front Street Commercial Real Estate Group represented Maple Street in this transaction to secure their new location at Butler Plaza. The new Gainesville location represents Maple Street’s eighth opening and is the second location that Front Street has facilitated.

Maple Street was started by Scott Moore and Gus Evans of Jacksonville, Florida. They opened their doors in late 2012 and have lived true to their values of consistent, Southern, comfort food with a modern twist, immaculately clean stores, and gracious service. Their success has been tremendous and has not gone unnoticed. They were featured in Forbes Magazine’s article “Trends Next Year In Food And Nutrition,” listed on USA Today’s “10 Best” list for Best Restaurants, voted in the top 100 restaurants in the nation by Urbanspoon, awarded the Gold Spoon Award for best new restaurant in Florida Trend Magazine, and recently featured on the Food Network’s hit show “Guilty Pleasures” in November of 2015.

“The demand in our market for new and exciting breakfast concepts is stronger than ever,” said Jason Hurst, associate director of Front Street Commercial Real Estate Group. He added, “It’s a very rewarding experience to facilitate such great growth of a fantastic company, and to help bring new brands like Maple Street to our community.” Cory Presnick, vice president of Butler Enterprises mentioned “We are extremely excited to be a part of bringing Maple Street Biscuit Company to the Gainesville community. Their focus on high quality, fresh, ingredients along with their strong core values and focus on community will be a proud addition to Butler Plaza and greater Gainesville.” He went on to mention “Maple Street’s recent recognition by the Food Network is proof of their strongly growing place in a continuously budding food culture and we hope their success will spur even more local and entrepreneurial groups to bring more authenticity and local flavor to the Gainesville food scene.”
