Jacksonville's Metro Diner now in four locations to serve you butter better.
In teaming up with the forces behind Carrabba's and Outback, Metro Diner might be in it for the long haul. Father and son co-owners John and Mark Davoli have done a great job with the consistency of food and continuity of theme so far. It seems they're considering taking it to another level, with a wider footprint in Florida, and perhaps onto the national stage.
Jacksonville's Metro Diner going for bigger Florida footprint, maybe national expansion.
The Davoli family has agreed on a partnership the ConSul Hospitality Group, who run Carrabba's and Outback. The founders would continue to run the restaurants locally, while ConSul Hospitality Group backs the business to expand beyond Jacksonville.
