P.F. Chang's Set to Open First Location in Daytona Beach
ONE DAYTONA, the planned mixed-use and entertainment destination across from Daytona International Speedway set to open in 2017, will feature a P.F. Chang's. Shaner Hotels and Prime Hospitality Group (PHG) also announced the name of the new Marriott Autograph Collection hotel—The DAYTONA, and the flag for its select-service hotel—Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott. Prime Group also serves as the developer for an approximate 268-unit residential apartment community, originally planned for a later phase and now part of the initial phase of ONE DAYTONA. Additional new regional retail and national food and beverage tenants will include Hy's Toggery and Kilwins Confections.
Its first location in Daytona Beach, P.F. Chang's will become part of ONE DAYTONA's high-energy Victory Circle with an approximately 5,500-square-foot space featuring indoor and outdoor upscale dining. With dishes and flavors inspired by the intersection of history, food, and culture across Asia, its scratch kitchen menu serves fresh ingredients made by hand for lunch and dinner, alongside a progressive wine list, innovative cocktails, house-made ginger beer, and freshly brewed loose-leaf teas.
"We're thrilled to enter the growing Daytona Beach market and believe ONE DAYTONA is an ideal location," says Wayne Jones, president/COO, P.F. Chang's. "We are excited to welcome new guests to experience our unique Asian-inspired cuisine and will be a committed partner to the surrounding community."
"P.F. Chang's is in the upper echelon of the casual restaurant category and a key tenant for ONE DAYTONA," adds ISC CEO Lesa France Kennedy. "We welcome them to the community with open arms."
The 144-room Marriott Autograph Collection hotel will be known as The DAYTONA, a property designed with motorsports in mind. Shaner Hotels and PHG announced Fairfield Inn & Suites by Marriott as the flag for its approximately 105-room select service hotel, also opening with the first phase of ONE DAYTONA.
"The Fairfield Inn & Suites is an amazing complement to The DAYTONA," says Prime Group CEO Larry Abbo. "The property will offer premium rooms, facilities and amenities to help travelers maintain momentum and stay balanced while traveling. With smart spaces and health conscious options, we will provide an upbeat, stress-free experience. We are excited about our free Wi-Fi, large sun deck and swimming pool, fitness facilities, free daily breakfast, and the established, affordable performance of Marriott and Fairfield Inn & Suites."
Prime Group will also serve as the developer for approximately 268 luxury apartment rental units. Following an extensive request for proposal process, ONE DAYTONA chose the Florida developer based on its command of market demographics, development experience, and expert property management systems. Prime Group, known for its sustainable real estate construction, development, and management, is planning a four-story midrise campus, and lakefront garden style apartments on the east side of the property and within walking distance of the new 12-screen Cobb Theatre and all the exciting shopping, dining, and entertainment offerings at ONE DAYTONA.
