Abuelo’s Announces Plans to Open New Restaurant in The Colony

LUBBOCK, Texas – Abuelo’s Mexican restaurant today announced plans for a new location in The Colony at the Village at 121, located on the northeast corner of Highway 121 and South Colony Blvd. The restaurant company, which recently closed its location in Lewisville due the Interstate 35E expansion project, has just signed a lease agreement on the new property, located directly across the highway from the new Nebraska Furniture Mart. The company had been looking to relocate its Lewisville restaurant to this market for the past year as the highway expansion affecting its prior location became imminent.

Kornel Romada, executive vice president, and Dan Avnery, co-managing partner-Dallas Retail, with NAI Robert Lynn represent the property, and other tenants within the same development include Mattress Firm, Sleep Experts and Tea2Go.

The new Abuelo’s in The Colony, which is scheduled to open in late 2015, will be the company’s sixth location in the DFW-area. Other Abuelo’s are located in Arlington, Hurst, East Plano, West Plano and Fort Worth.

“The DFW area has been an excellent market for our restaurants and we are excited to open this new location in The Colony,” said Robert Lin, president of Food Concepts International, Abuelo’s parent company. “The Colony is a thriving area and we look forward to welcoming our existing guests to the new location, as well as creating even more avid fans in the DFW Metroplex.”

The new Abuelo’s will feature approximately 7,700-square-feet of interior space. It will seat approximately 250 guests and will employ between 80-100 employees. The new location will offer the same great Mexican food available in all Abuelo’s restaurants, featuring creative, made-from-scratch Mexican specialties, superior service and affordable prices.

“Our theme at Abuelo’s is ‘welcome to our home,’” added Lin. “Our goal is to offer our guests an opportunity to experience diverse flavors every day, in an authentic Mexican villa with superior service at a great value – whether it’s for a quick lunch with co-workers or a casual dinner with family or friends.”
