A Chipotle Mexican Grill could be coming soon to Fort Walton Beach, FL

Chipotle Mexican Grill could soon be coming to Fort Walton Beach

It looks as if Fort Walton Beach could soon have their very own Chipotle Mexican Grill.

On Monday morning, I drove to the old Shriners building on Mary Esther Cutoff to take pictures and video of the demolition. I couldn’t help but wonder what would take its place.

A records search turned up that SL&D FWBLLC out of Melbourne, FL bought the property located at 227 Carol Ave on November 16, 2020 from the Hadji Temple Association. The sale price was $662,000.

Project information with the City of Fort Walton Beach list that an expedited development order was approved for a Chipotle Restaurant on October 13, 2020. According to the city, the interior plans are still in review but a shell building permit is close to being issued.

At this time, we do not know of a proposed opening date or timeline.
