FORT MYERS, Fla.- Florida's first full service Nathan's Famous restaurant, will officially open for business at 10:30AM on Tuesday, March 15.

Rental opportunities are now available at the new retail strip, located at 11150 S. Cleveland Ave, Fort Myers, and Nathan’s is now hiring. Prospective tenants should contact Cushman and Wakefield at 239-489-3600 for leasing information. Job applicants should visit or call 239-208-7333 to apply.

The hangar-style architecture pays homage to the rich aviation history represented by its namesake Page Field Air Park, located directly across U.S. 41, and even houses a Yankee Clipper airplane with functioning navigation lights and spinning propeller. Boasting a 30-foot wingspan, the craft is complete except for the engine, which was removed to reduce its weight as it hangs from the roof joists over the tables in the restaurant.

The restaurant also features an innovative video drive-thru fast food experience offering an unprecedented emphasis on customer service. The days of talking to an empty box is over, with a video screen that allows customers to see the person taking their order. The menu will offer something for everyone, with Nathan’s Famous hot dogs of all kinds, chicken sandwiches, burgers, fries, Philly cheesesteaks and much more.
