I Heart Mac & Cheese held an official grand reopening on Jan. 8. However, a restaurant representative said they didn’t close the doors during the new ownership transition.

“We kept a running transition where the doors stayed open so we could serve the public and train our new employees,” the representative said.

Pratik Soni is the new owner of the Highland Village eatery. He also owns another I Heart Mac & Cheese franchise in North Richland Hills.

Their top selling menu items at this location are the Chicken Parmesan Mac & Cheese bowl, Best of Both Worlds sandwich and Mac & Cheese flatbread.
