Hawaiian Bros, a fast-casual restaurant company with locations throughout the Midwest, will open its first brick-and-mortar restaurants in Texas in 2021.

Fourteen restaurants are planned for North Texas, according to a company statement. A Fort Worth location at 2301 N. Tarrant Parkway, Fort Worth, is expected to open in May in the Presidio Towne Crossing development.


Future locations are also planned to open Frisco and Richardson this year. Hawaiian Bros also has "ghost kitchens" in Garland and Austin that are only open for delivery or takeout, according to the restaurant's website.

Hawaiian Bros was founded by brothers Cameron and Tyler McNie in 2018 and focuses on the plate lunch, a Hawaiian staple. According to the statement, traditional meals feature a main protein, such as marinated teriyaki chicken or slow-roasted Kalua pork, with sides of jasmine rice and macaroni salad. 214-544-0505. www.hawaiianbros.com
