The Gringo's situation kind of reminds me of Sprouts several years back (where the Spec's is now next to Home Depot, originally a Linens N Things). They had talked it up, planned the location, and may have even filed some permits, and then...it was gone, and they made a statement of how they pulled out of the location for the foreseeable future, but gave no real reason why.

Speaking of which, I have heard more rumblings regarding a long-rumored certain national retailer that sells food that has numerous Houston locations actually deciding on one of three locations in the area and have begun hiring upper management for the stores. I'll believe it when I see it.

That's an interesting guess...

"Panera Bread sells overpriced hospital food"

Finally, someone said it! Couldn't agree more. I might get some flack for saying this, but I feel the same way about Blue Baker...

More like Blue Baker sells overpriced hospital food on bakery quality bread.

I understand most hospital food, but there are outliers. Read about Arkansas Heart Hospital ramen. They even started a food truck.
I am not a Panera or BB fan either.

I can confirm that we recently signed a lease for the Madhatter's space. We will start working very hard to be open in the fall after taking possession June 1.

El Guapo would have been infamous.
Costa and Andreas
How long do you want to ignore this user?
Haha yes! Thought about that but for reasons to later be revealed we concluded the brand of El Jefe will have more impact.

Great job Costa! Fun watching you guys grow.

Thanks Mike! We didn't purposefully try to take on two new projects at once. The Northgate location was a surprise, we didn't seek it out. So, now we have Burger Mojo and El Jefe probably opening simultaneously. It's gonna be a busy summer for us getting them both ready!! Fortunately, we are supported by a great team around us.

Just saw Fat Shack featured on Shark Tank. They got a deal with Mark Cuban for $250K for 15% of the company.

Any idea where the second Panera Bread location is going to go? Since the mayor said they've decided College Station is a community where they want a second location, I would assume they are pretty far in the process. I think next to the Chick-fil-a going in at Jones Crossing would be a strong candidate.
There was a building at Caprock Crossing in New Development the other day that had a restaurant with a menu board in the back directly adjacent to another office-type building. Since Panera Bread has a drive-through and other fast food restaurants typically use their own land, I would assume that's it, especially since it's on the opposite end of town.

Yes, I have. It's very good! They catered an event I was at and I was very impressed. Haven't had a chance to go by their foot truck yet but it's on my list. I think they were just open on weekends but if I remember correctly, their Facebook page said they were going to now be open Wed - Sun.

Per Rusty on KBTX, there's a Panda Express and Jason's Deli going in by the Chick Fil A near Bryan Super Walmart.

And the Chick Fil A will be torn down for a full rebuild.
"If you will not fight for right when you can easily win without blood shed; if you will not fight when your victory is sure and not too costly; you may come to the moment when you will have to fight with all the odds against you and only a precarious chance of survival. There may even be a worse case. You may have to fight when there is no hope of victory, because it is better to perish than to live as slaves." - Sir Winston Churchill

New Development from Dec 18 says it's "The Crossing at Wellborn", a commercial development, but no building plans (much less tenant information) has been shown.

I'm sure the construction crews will be working 24/6 on the project.
