The Brass Ring Pub this month paid $2.55 million for the former Burrito Bros. restaurant on Indiantown Road, a move that allows the burger restaurant to finally open a location in Jupiter.
Brass Ring Pub principal Bret Worcester on Friday confirmed the purchase of the 1150 Indiantown Road property.
The Brass Ring Pub, known for its large, juicy burgers, has locations in Royal Palm Beach and North Palm Beach, where it first opened in 1986.
But Worcester said the family-owned restaurant company always wanted a Jupiter store.
“Customers would say, ‘I wish you’d come this way,’” Worcester said. “We tried. We have a lot of friends that live in Jupiter. But it was a tough place to look for space.”
Worcester said the family believes in owning and not leasing its restaurant sites, so patience was needed until the right property became available to purchase.
And then one day, “we lucked out,” Worcester said.
“I went online and looked up commercial real estate for sale and something popped up and it was this building,” he said.
Christian Prakas, of Prakas & Co. in Boca Raton, brokered the deal to the Brass Ring Pub.
Prakas also found a new space for owners of the Burrito Bros., which closed earlier this month at the Indiantown Road location after eight years dishing Tex-Mex/barbeque food.
Owners of the Burrito Bros. Jupiter store have a new restaurant site. It’s in Jupiter Farms, in the Farms Market Place at 16891 Jupiter Farms Road. That restaurant, dubbed Taylor Farmhouse Cafe, is a new concept by Chris and Elizabeth Taylor. The cafe is expected to open in mid-September.
Plans are to open the Brass Ring Pub in Jupiter by late October, after a redo of the 6,100-square-foot space takes place. Worcester said the interior will be painted darker colors. More televisions will be installed.
Most importantly, a bar will be added, too.
Worcester is partners in the Brass Ring Pub with his brothers Todd and Dusty.
