Krystal restaurant might open in Crestview

Krystal offered to construct a cross connection between its property and Family Vision Center, but the gesture was declined, Ziegenfuss said. City planners encourage cross connections between adjacent commercial properties to relieve traffic congestion in heavily traveled commercial areas.

The Chattanooga, Tenn.-based Krystal chain operates nearly 370 restaurants throughout the South. Its menu includes breakfast selections and the square burgers for which it is best known.

Juke Hill, named for a series of "juke joint" nightclubs that flourished on the stretch between either end of present-day Redstone Avenue West, has long had a local reputation as "jinxed property," with multiple businesses closing soon after opening on the hill.

However, the opening of the successful Dunkin’ Donuts on the site of a Lee's Chicken restaurant that lasted less than a year, as well as a professional office plaza behind the donut shop, apparently broke the "jinx."
