CRESTVIEW — Hot Head Burritos will open its first restaurant in Crestview next month.

Construction is underway on the 2,000-square-foot restaurant at the Bent Creek Shopping Center in front of Publix. The restaurant is targeting an opening date during the week of Feb. 15.

“We are very excited to be opening in Crestview because of the great community and atmosphere,” said local franchise owner Tim Wheat. “We have been looking for the right location in Crestview for a couple years and are excited to finally serve this area with a variety of flavorful menu offerings.”

The exterior signs will be installed this week and equipment will be delivered next week, said Zachery Ketring, who owns the Fort Walton Beach location.
