From a custom furniture craftsman to a couple of new burger joints, several new businesses are coming soon to Hutto.

Burger King has purchased a plot of land at 100 Chris Kelley Blvd., Hutto, directly next to the recently opened Dutch Bros. Coffee, according to Maribel Forte, a representative with Evergreen Commercial Real Estate. Burger King will build a restaurant at the site, though it does not yet have an expected start or completion date for the restaurant.

Country Donuts, a new locally owned donut shop, will open in 2022. The shop is located at 133 Front St., Ste. 300, Hutto, as one of the units at the Valero gas station. Owner Johnny Khan said he hopes to open Country Donuts Jan. 1.

Luis Marquez Studio will open at 3750 Limmer Loop, Ste. A, Hutto, in February 2022. Owner Luis Marquez said he handcrafts custom furniture that includes tables, mirrors and lamps. His most popular items are candleholders, he said, and added he has been making furniture and other items for homes for 20 years. He recently moved to the Hutto area from Pflugerville. 512-642-6274.

Austin-based burger chain Mighty Fine Burgers, Fries & Shakes will open a new location on the 200 block of Ed Schmidt Boulevard in Hutto. Parent company Tc4 & Co. purchased the plot of land in between Chipotle and WhiteWater Express Car Wash and plans to build the restaurant there, though it does not have an expected timeline at this stage in the project. A Jason's Deli was originally planned for the site, but the project fell through. The original Mighty Fine opened in 2007, and today Mighty Fine operates five restaurants throughout the Greater Austin area. The Hutto location will be the sixth.
