CRESTVIEW -- The city council this evening unanimously approved a proposed Krystal restaurant for the site of a long-closed gas station on State Road 85 across from the Dunkin Donuts shop. The request was included in the consent agenda of the new council's first meeting.

The restaurant will be situated between an existing Region's Bank and the Family Vision Center on the east side of the highway on what is locally known as Juke Hill.

Krystal, based in Chattanooga, Tenn., has indicated on site plans filed with the city that it would in the future build a commercial building on the site as well.

With the city council's approval, in the first vote of the new council, Krystal has stated that the new restaurant might be open as soon as the end of July.
