Hooters Reopening for the Third Time in Gainesville

The famous buffalo wing chain, Hooters, is trying to make it a go for the third time in Gainesville.

The new location will be where the former Square 1 burger location was, at 3105 SW 34th Street. If you think you are having deja vu and thought there was already a location there, you are sort of right. Hooter's once was opened in the location where there is currently a World of Beer. It's projected to open at the end of March. There is already a Hooter's location in Ocala, and in other locations throughout the state.

Two more Starbucks shops are coming to Gainesville.

Just in time for the "pumpkin spice latte" season, two new Starbucks' are set to open in Gainesville.


Construction has started on a new Starbucks on Archer Road, just west of Interstate 75, the Gainesville Sun is reporting.

A Starbucks at 4344 Archer Road will be a part of a new development off Archer Road called the Commons at Celebration Pointe. Announced tenants for the development include a Wawa gas station — popular for its coffee and hoagies — and luxury apartments.

Brokers for the 19-acre planned mixed-use development are advertising for big box retail, restaurants, medical and commercial uses, with leases varying in size from 1,200 square feet up to 75,000 square feet.

It’s unclear when that Starbucks will be finished. The shell of the building is still going up and site work still needs to be completed.

Another Starbucks is planned for 1614 NW 13th St, across the street from a Walgreens.
