Retail Connections and its investment partners will demolish two vacant buildings currently located at the corner of Summercrest and Wilshire Boulevard and bring four new to-market users on the two-acre corner lot. Three of them are already approved and are excited to open in Burleson. They include Fatburger, Coolgreens and Hawaiian Bros Island Grill.
Fatburger is an American fast casual restaurant specializing in food cooked and made to order. This will be their sixth DFW location. The Burleson site will be Coolgreens fourth location in the Metroplex. Coolgreens will offer nutritious salads, wraps, grain bowls and sandwiches. Hawaiian Bros will be serving up island-inspired lunches, sides and salads when they open their restaurant in Burleson, their twelfth location in the DFW area.
"Working with Retail Connection and Kaufman Consultants on numerous projects in our market has been incredible. They completely understand our market and continue to make a difference in Burleson," stated Alex Philips, city of Burleson economic development director. "This development will reenergize a great corner on Wilshire, and it will create an amazing place for our citizens to enjoy new restaurants with different concepts that aren't currently in our area."
The development will also address many site improvements in the area, including drainage, shared access, traffic flow, and water infrastructure.
"We are very excited about our second project in Burleson. The interest level we have had from all prospective tenants has been very inspiring, to say the least," said Tony Filley, The Retail Connection Executive Vice President. "We've had the opportunity to work with the top tenants in their respective categories, and this is indicative of how vibrant and exciting Burleson has become. Burleson has a tremendous amount of upside with unlimited opportunities. It is always helpful when working with a city that has the same values and visions. The City of Burleson has been fantastic to work with and we are always looking down the road for future projects."
