New Abuelo’s Restaurant to Open in League City in 2017

Restaurant Slated to Open in Pinnacle Park Development

LUBBOCK, Texas – Food Concepts International, parent company of Abuelo’s Mexican Restaurants, and Pinnacle Alliance Fund announced today that construction will soon begin on a new Abuelo’s restaurant in the Pinnacle Park, a 100+-acre mixed use town center in League City, Texas. This will be Abuelo’s second restaurant in the Houston-area and the company’s 40th location nationwide.

Construction will begin in early 2017 on the approximately 7,600 square-foot restaurant in Pinnacle Park, which is slated to open in early Q3 2017. The restaurant will feature a natural light skylight over an interior courtyard with hand-painted artwork adorning the walls, greenery and traditional statuary throughout. The restaurant will also have a 2,000-square-foot, climate controlled outdoor patio with operable exterior doors that can be opened during nicer weather. The patio area will also be available for booking private parties and other functions.

“We are very excited to expand Abuelo’s in the Houston market, and we expect the Pinnacle Park development to be an excellent location for us,” said Robert Lin, President of FCI. “This new location will offer the same great Mexican food for which Abuelo’s is known, including our creative, made-from-scratch Mexican specialties, superior service and affordable prices.

Pinnacle Park is a 100+-acre, high quality, mixed-used development located in the southern corridor and sub-market of south Houston. Positioned on I-45, near the Sam Houston Tollway and the New Grand Parkway/Hwy 646, Pinnacle Park is a prime destination and entertainment venue that includes office, medical, dining, leisure, retail and multi-family/residential uses.
