The popular grocery chain H-E-B on March 26 announced its plans to expand into the North Texas suburbs following years of speculation as the company acquired properties in the area.
The company is expected to begin construction in the summer on two new H-E-B locations, one in Frisco and the other in Plano, according to spokesperson Mabrie Jackson. These stores will open in the fall of 2022.
“This is an exciting day as we share plans to expand our presence in the DFW market with the introduction of H-E-B, our flagship banner, to our growing network of stores,” said Stephen Butt, the company’s Central Market division president, in a statement.
The Frisco store will be located at the northeast corner of Legacy Drive and Main Street. The location in Plano will be at the southwest corner of Preston Road and Spring Creek Parkway.
In Plano, Mayor Harry LaRosiliere welcomed the announcement, calling the grocery “one of the most beloved” brands in the state.
“We are so proud H-E-B chose [Plano] to launch their ever-popular grocery concept locally,” LaRosiliere said in a written statement. “This flagship store will add to the fabric of our community and that makes us Texan and special. Welcome H-E-B!”
A spokesperson for the city of Frisco could not be immediately be reached for comment.
