Tropical Jerk Hut & Wraps Coming to Merrillville

New Jerk & Wrap Restaurant to open at 1441 E 82nd Ave

Tropical Jerk Hut & Wraps has leased the 3,298 SF restaurant at 1441 E 82nd Ave in Merrillville. This free-standing restaurant sits on 82nd Ave across from Red Lobster. Tropical Jerk Hut & Wraps will take over the former Golden Shrimp. The lease was completed on September 15th, 2020 and plans are to open the new location in late fall of 2020.

Myles Rapchak & Brett McDermott, of Latitude Commercial, represented both sides of this deal. “The building and location were exactly what Tropical Jerk Hut & Wraps were looking for. Drive-thru space is very difficult to find and being by all the hotels and malls gives them excellent traffic. Ownership was so great to work with and her passion for her food will certainly be noticed.” said Rapchak. “They are going to be a great addition to Merrillville and the surrounding communities.”
