Paul and Margo Flanigan opened their “Florida casual” concept in 1966 with sliding windows and a large covered patio, along with a marine/surfing ambiance for a neighborhood clientele. Each unit is “built to its market” on company-owned real estate. Flanigan expects slower growth ahead, as the chain deals with rising real estate taxes and construction costs.
