Newk’s Express Café will open its 50th restaurant April 16 in Jacksonville, Fla. The restaurant is the company’s first in Jacksonville and third in Florida.
“We are ecstatic about opening our 50th restaurant only eight years after our first location opened in Mississippi,” said Chris Newcomb, co-founder, president and CEO of Newk’s Express Café. “We have many more restaurants in the pipeline and expect to open at least 15 more by the end of this year. Our 50th location is in a new market and we will enter many other cities and states for the first time this year. 2012 is set to be a great year for Newk’s.”
