The 30A Company will open its first 30A Beach Happy Café in the WaterColor community in Spring 2021. The new casual dining and retail concept will be located in WaterColor Town Center, directly on the south side of Scenic Highway 30-A.
“Almost every local and visitor routinely passes through that intersection, and thousands of people walk by it on their way to the beach and the newly expanded WaterColor Beach Club,” said Mike Ragsdale, 30A’s Founder & CEO. “We couldn’t have asked for a better place to create 30A’s first Beach Happy Café.”
Ragsdale said the café is owned and operated by Walton County locals and restaurant veterans, Chris Kramolis and Eric Jenrich. Jenrich founded Tropical Smoothie Café, which now has 900 locations nationwide.
“30A’s Beach Happy Café will cater to residents of the WaterColor community, locals, and guests with affordable grab-and-go food and drink options for breakfast, lunch and dinner,” said Kramolis.
According to Kramolis, the café will also serve a new custom line of 30A Gelato, hand-crafted especially for 30A by G.S. Gelato in Fort Walton Beach.Alyssa Walker on
