Grumpy's Restaurant Looks to Expand in Northeast Florida TerritoryJacksonville, FL  (  Amidst rising popularity in Jacksonville, FL, Grumpy’s Restaurant, an award-winning full-service Americana breakfast, lunch and brunch diner, is continuing its expansion in Northeast Florida as part of their ongoing growth efforts. With business thriving at their five Jacksonville area locations, Grumpy’s Restaurant is looking to continue their growth in the market, setting their sights on St. Augustine as the next home for their delicious food and quality family atmosphere.

The traditional full-service Americana breakfast diner has been successfully serving the Jacksonville community since 1999 and has been franchising since 2019. With popular locations in Orange Park, Middleburg, St. John’s, Neptune Beach and Wildlight (Yulee), the brand is now looking to expand into nearby St. Augustine. With strong population growth of the area since the most recent census, Grumpy’s Restaurant is confident the coastal and historic city is the perfect place for their expansion efforts.

“We have been honored with the incredible reception from our home community here in Jacksonville,” said CEO and President Daniel DeLeon. “We treat our customers like family and we want to bring Grumpy’s to areas that reflects those values. When it comes to our expansion, we focus on locations with a strong sense of community that embody what we stand for.”

With five open locations in Jacksonville, Grumpy’s prides itself on made-to-order and always-made-from-scratch comfort food and sweet southern hospitality all at a working-class price. Grumpy’s serves breakfast, lunch and brunch along with an array of daily and weekly chalkboard specials which include a variety of waffles, pancakes, omelets, sandwiches, homemade soups, salads, signature coffee, freshly squeezed juices, homemade hot chocolate and desserts.
