Barbara’s Blog:

There is a lot of construction activity in the Davenport area and Posner Park shopping plaza, and it is exciting to see progress in both retail and commercial development at last.  Exit 55 is finally seeing some growth with at least fast-food restaurants, and hopefully the full size sit-down restaurants are not far behind.

Soon to come are Popeye’s, Chik-Fil-A, and Dunkin Donuts right off of I-4 at Exit 55, all in the same proximity.   WaWa’s gas station will be completed in the near future beside Dunkin Donuts.  In the Posner Park shopping plaza, Ashley’s Furniture is under construction next to the Cinepolis Movie Theater and a new place for children to enjoy, called Time In, will be opening in the same retail section as Zen Asian Grill. 

Locally, the demographics are rapidly changing with more permanent residents in the area than ever before.  Various new residential communities are springing up all around Davenport, so there will be a great need for more restaurants and retail shopping.  A credible source has said it is a “watch and wait” atmosphere for some major businesses, and in time, this “gold mine” of opportunity will be snatched up. 

So, in the meantime, we continue to enjoy the positive growth that we have and welcome the new business owners to Davenport!
