Maple Street was started by Scott Moore and Gus Evans, and they built it right here in Jacksonville, Florida. They opened their doors on November 8, 2012 to a community with open arms and hungry tummies.
There lies a heartbeat behind Maple Street before it ever opened its doors, and it wasn’t out to just make a profit. It was out to make a difference, and to be a part of the community. Walking into every Maple Street, you should be walking into a culture created around the idea of just that. You’ll notice a lot of community style seating for you to meet your neighbor, or if you are visiting, meeting the locals.
Maple Street operates on four guiding principles:
With those principles in mind, we craft good food from great products. It’s not just about a flaky buttermilk biscuit, it’s what you put inside it. Using quality ingredients, making the most of them in house, and serving some of the best locally roasted coffee, Maple Street will turn you into a regular.
We often get asked if we are a franchise or a chain. The answer is no. With more locations than one, and with the same delicious offerings at each one, what are we? Well, to be honest, we made up our own word on what we are. We refer to it as a group of community stores. We did not set out to sell a concept, and make a profit. We wanted to make a difference in people’s lives that are a part of the communities we serve.
Every store is named after the community it is a part of. We have a mission and a few core principles that guide each store. That’s how we do growth; we find people to live out that mission and those values. Those fine people are our community leaders. What is the mission and those values? Essentially, it is us saying we want to do for others what the Lord has already done for us.
We want to be a place that says people are the most important, and have our actions match our words.
We want to get to know our guests, and to have our guests get to know each other. We want to meet people we normally don’t come in contact with. We want to be in a community for years to come, to help define the neighborhood. We want you to call it yours! We know it sounds like more then a restaurant normally does, and that’s because that is what we hope to be.
We didn’t start Maple Street to just sell yummy food; we started it out of a desire to help others and their families. We wanted to become our own family along the way, and we wanted a place our team members would be proud to say they worked at. Most of all, we wanted to take care of them. That’s what a community is to us. If you have questions, feel free to contact us, or find which community store is nearest to you.
