Shoppers and diners will be in for some exciting new changes and developments at The Avenue Viera later this year. In addition, a new face will also be present within the community: General Manager Kevin Cedik. Bringing over 20 years of industry experience to our booming local economy, he is confident with plans to take The Avenue Viera to the next level of success. 

“My big picture, long-term vision for The Avenue is to continue to build upon its current successes to be the shopping, dining and entertainment destination, not just for the local community, but for the region for all guests and out-of-town visitors,” Cedik says. 

The focus, he says, is to not only create the ultimate customer experience for guests, but also maintain the shopping location as a one-stop-shop for the community. 

“We will do this by continuing to build upon our current retail mix, providing multiple dining options, entertainment venues and provide top-notch quality special events for the entire community to experience,” Cedik says. 

With a new, redevelopment project underway, set to complete mid to late summer, those visiting the shopping area will be in for a real treat. Amenities such as a spruced-up Central Park area, jet fountain for children’s entertainment, and plush seating areas throughout are some of the new features to look forward to. 

“This will also give us the flexibility to build upon our events and property activation to give the guests more opportunities to experience the new Avenue,” Cedik says. 

Marketing Coordinator Michelle Bujold is also on board to support this giant growth period and cannot wait to see its success. 

“We’re fortunate to be growing upon a great foundation here at The Avenue and to be a part of a quickly growing area,” Bujold says. “We can’t wait to see what the future brings.” 

Bujold adds that the goal and hope is to continually make this shopping area the top retail, dining and entertainment amenity for Brevard County families, catering to this flourishing area’s wants and needs. ◆
