Naked Farmer Expands Into South Florida
The farm-to-fork restaurant will occupy 1,900 square feet in Downtown Coral Gables
After successful endeavors in St. Petersburg and Tampa, the Naked Farmer restaurant group is bringing its farm-centric approach to Miami after securing a lease at 137 Giralda Avenue in Coral Gables.
The concept of the Naked Farmer involves finding nutritious, farm-fresh food and making it accessible to entire communities.
“This is a Florida story as we work with farmers all over the state who we source our food from,” says Jordan Johnson, founder of Naked Farmer. “We’re investing in our state’s economy by buying from local growers and as we grow, that purchase power grows and more of every dollar spent in our restaurant stays local.”
Securing the lease in Coral Gables was made possible thanks to a partnership with JLL, a commercial real estate and investment property firm.
“When Jordan and Naked Farmer approached us to help them find a space, we knew that Coral Gables was a perfect location for such a unique concept to enter the market in a strategic rollout strategy,” says Zach Winkler, Executive Vice President of JLL.
After establishing the Coral Gables location, the partnership will look at other venues around the state and South Florida to further its goal of providing a farm-to-fork meal for everyone in Florida.
“As the brand looks to open additional locations throughout South Florida, we will be targeting similar submarkets with strong population densities like Brickell, Aventura and Fort Lauderdale,” Winkler says.
