Checkers Drive-In Restaurants, the Tampa-based burger chain that at one point had four locations in Brevard, is returning to the Space Coast with a new franchisee toting plans for substantial growth.
Michigan resident Alan Balen reopened the Merritt Island Checkers at 520 N. Courtenay Parkway — the 13th franchise in his company, IB Corp. — last week. That followed the August reopening of the Checkers at 4840 Babcock Road N.E. in Palm Bay.
Balen could add from five to 10 more Brevard locations, according to a news release, though he and his management team are not saying when and where just yet.
