The company who owns the property says it hopes to get a coffee or fast food franchise to lease the location.
Longtime customers of Burger King can no longer have it their way. The fast food franchise closed its location on the beachside in Ormond Beach, 330 S. Atlantic Ave., on April 29. Mark White, one of the partners of Tarheel 330 LLC, which owns the location, said it's been open for at least 40 years.
"I used to go to Burger King on my bike as a kid," he said. "So I know it's been there a long time."
White says his company has had some preliminary talks with a coffee franchise and a fast food franchise, but no official offers have been made. He said they're hoping to get a company in there that will utilize the building's drive-thru.
"The building was renovated not too long ago, so it's in great shape," he said. "And it has a drive-thru, which is hard to get in the city of Ormond."
A longtime resident of the area, White said the Burger King was frequently attended, and that a few people have expressed to him their disappointments.
"They didn't announce it," he said. "So I've seen a bunch of cars going in and out, not realizing it's closed. There's not a lot of fast food options on the peninsula. We had Burger King and McDonald's, and now we only have McDonald's."
Last year, the Burger King on North Nova Road closed before construction of the new CVS at 10 N. Nova Road.
