Howdy, folks, and welcome back to another permit roundup! Last week, we unfortunately had to skip our permit roundup due to lack of content! So let’s start off with the only permit I really did skip over last week. 7-Eleven had filed building plans at 10670 W Little York Rd, Houston, TX 77041, which would put it opposite Beltway 8 from a Valero/Circle K. Moving onto this week, let’s start off with another new built structure. This one is a Raising Canes location which is coming to 13480 Northwest Fwy, Houston, TX 77040. The spot was previously occupied by Taco Cabana, who shutdown the location as a part of their restructuring. This wasn’t a huge surprise as Raising Cane’s filed the demolition permit a few weeks ago. Another location to transform spaces is a former My Fit Foods on 5535 Memorial Dr, Houston, TX 77007 that has be working on becoming an Asian restaurant for the past 2 years. Originally a My Fit Foods, a permit has been filed to transform this space into the punnily named Duck & Bao. We shall see how this plays out though, as this is at least the second concept to gain traction in the spot, without yet opening.
A few other restaurants doing remodels in the area include a new spot in the Bunker Hill Plaza. The former SushiPop location at 9770 Katy Freeway Service Road #100, Houston, TX 77055 will become a new location for Mod Pizza. As well, the former Carl’s Jr at 3011 Ella Blvd Houston, TX 77018 is in the process of becoming a new Dunkin’ Donuts location. Both Mod and Dunkin have been on expansion binges within Houston lately, while SushiPop still exists at Wirt Rd. Carl’s Jr. left Houston over a year ago. Finally the Walmart at 9555 S Post Oak Rd, Houston, TX 77096 is remodeling a portion of their space. As with other Walmart locations in Houston, this is likely the McDonald’s being converted into a Store Pickup area, as evident by the in store McDonald’s shutting down. And, that’s all we have for this week! Permit Roundup should be back next week, and data withholding, we’ll see ya in two! But in the meantime, you can easily keep up to date on Houston’s goings-on by liking Houston Historic Retail on Facebook.
