Upper Crust Pizza Café
Restaurant Partners also owns and operates a fast casual Italian concept called Upper Crust Pizza Café. Designed to fit into hotel lobbies, small center spaces and food courts, Upper Crust delivers a high quality offering to the pizza market. Fresh dough, hand-crafted daily from our proprietary recipes along with the freshest toppings, have made Upper Crust a fan favorite on Disney property in Orlando as well as throughout Florida.
Market Street Cafe
Think 1950’s small town diner and you have a picture of Market Street Cafe. With over 60 items made from scratch daily, Market Street features cooking like mom used to do it. Fresh meat loaf, oven baked breads, hand-carved turkey breast, and some of the best
ice-cream sodas you’ve ever tasted are some of the specialties of this family friendly concept.
A southern gem with full seafood offerings! Dixie Dave’s is a casual friendly restaurant with a “tongue in cheek” nod to down home southern cooking. The menu features gator tail, smothered chicken, a low country crab boil, popcorn scallops, and an irresistible mac and cheese skillet. At an average of $15 per person, Dixie Dave’s appeals to families, lunch guests, couples of all ages, and informal social gatherings. From time to time, even a hillbilly band may appear for live music just to keep things interesting!
As a licensee of the famous Earnest Hemingway hangout in Key West, FL, RPI has taken a bit of the Keys slightly North to Daytona Beach. Featuring giant sandwiches like a one lb. BLT, lobster grilled cheese, and a surf-n-turf burger, Sloppy Joe’s appeals to a wide demographic audience. Alcohol, like our 20 oz,
5-shot fishbowl comprises 30% of sales, while proprietary retail items make this concept a hot item in water front vacation and tourist destinations. Sloppy Joe’s Website
