Thornton's is coming to Largo.
Thorntons is known for its wide selection of fountain drinks where customers can add a choice of flavor shots and choose different types of ice.
The Largo location is currently in the planning stage. Assuming the process continues at the current pace, plans could be complete within 45 days, according to the community development department.
The first Florida location is set to open next spring in Clearwater. The company's Tampa Bay plan includes 15 to 20 stores within the next three years, according to a news release.
The privately held company operates about 165 gasoline and convenience stores in Kentucky, Illinois, Indiana, Ohio and Tennessee. The first Thorntons opened in Indiana in 1971.
