Harden Boulevard Burger King Owners Looking to Remake Restaurant

Yesterday’s City of Lakeland Planning and Zoning Board had a public hearing (video) on a proposal to reconstruct the Burger King at 3590 Harden Boulevard. The franchisee, Bravo Tampa LLC, expressed that the current building a need to improve the restaurant’s ability to handle drive through business. The company’s representative, Robin Kendell, explained that the restaurant was built at a time when the business was 50% drive-through and 50% walk-in sales. Kendell explained that the business has changed and two-thirds of the business is now drive-through. The company wants to reconstruct the building to decrease seating capacity, create double drive through lanes, and add a bypass lane. The Planning and Zoning Board approved the proposal.
