Jax Fito’s, the Cuban cuisine restaurant that was located at 11915 Beach Blvd #112, is hoping to open a food truck in the area.
After closing its brick-and-mortar, owner Yanelis Huet applied for a Mobile Food Dispensing Vehicle through the Florida Department of Business & Professional Regulation. While Huet applied for this in mid-August, the request has yet to be approved. If approved, the company will take its operations to the streets of Jacksonville, offering delicious authentic Cuban cuisine. The company’s restaurant accepted reservations, provided catering, and offered online ordering and delivery options.
At the restaurant, customers were welcomed by a vibrant interior with Cuban artwork and decor, transporting them to the streets of Havana. Before closing, Jax Fito’s offered plenty of Cuban classics, such as empanadas, lechon asado, supreme fries, and, of course, a Cuban sandwich with fries. The new mobile vehicle will likely feature a stripped-down menu full of customer’s favorites. Huet hopes to get the food truck rolling by the end of the year.
“At Jax Fito’s, we prioritize creating an inviting atmosphere that reflects the warmth and hospitality of Cuba,” according to the company’s website. “Immerse yourself in the vibrant flavors of Cuba at Jax Fito’s Cuban Restaurant.
