Hiro Asian Sandwich Bistro, which opened in late 2012, is continuing to welcome customers until someone else leases the space and moves in.
Jurel Serrana, manager at the Bento Group, said the restaurant's equipment is for sale.
“We've asked (Front Street) to look into buyers,” he said. “So if we have any buyers, we will be closing.”
The Mix changes name from KC Crave
KC Crave — at 3501 SW 2nd Ave., Suite A — changed its name to The Mix on Feb. 26.
The switch comes after a name conflict with the Crave restaurant chain, which is based out of Minneapolis and has Florida locations in Orlando and Coral Gables.
With another location in Jacksonville Beach, The Mix opened in Gainesville in May 2013.
Library at Market Street for lease
The Library at Market Street will remain open until a new tenant for the downtown space can be found.
“(The current tenant) is willing to leave as soon as we find a new tenant,” said Stathe Karahalios of Nautilus Realty. “The Library is still in operation. They're still a going business.”
Located at 112 SW First Ave. next to Loosey's, the business opened in late 2012. Karahalios said anyone interested in leasing the space could move in immediately.
