Located on the corner of Eldorado Parkway and Coit Road, the store moves into one of the last undeveloped portions of Brinkmann Ranch as one piece of a more than 600-acre mixed-use Landon Development Company and Centergy Retail project.
The project, named Lexington Village, was first announced in June 2020 and will feature several retail and restaurant spaces surrounding the grocery store. Plans for surrounding housing developments were announced a few months later in November.
“A unique part of this part of our city is the [Brinkmann] Ranch down the street that creates this huge void,” Frisco Mayor Jeff Cheney said. “The biggest complaints I get from homeowners in this part of the city is there's no retail, there's no shopping, there's no grocery store.”
Those complaints are solved thanks to the Tom Thumb store, Cheney said.
“Thank you for the investment here in our community,” Cheney said. “We wish you nothing but success.”
President of Centergy Retail West Miller, Landon Homes CEO John Landon and Matt Enzler, Trammell Crow Residential senior managing director, were also present and spoke at the groundbreaking to represent the three incoming features of Lexington Village.
“We can't be more proud of being a part of the Lexington community out here,” Miller said.
The celebrations went past the groundbreaking—a check for $10,000 was presented to the Frisco Education Foundation as a way for Tom Thumb to thank them for the work the foundation has done to invest in its students, said Christy Lara, Tom Thumb’s director of communications and public relations.
“The Frisco Education Foundation is truly investing in the future of Frisco, and we want to acknowledge your work,” Lara said.
Allison Miller, FEF and Frisco ISD director of community relations, FEF Board President Renee Sample and other FISD representatives were present to accept the check on behalf of the foundation.
The grocery store is expected to open in spring 2024, according to Lara. It will be the third Tom Thumb in Frisco.
“As this great city continues to grow, Tom Thumb, DFW’s grocers since 1948, is very excited to grow with you,” Lara said.
