From a freshly baked cookie shop to locally owned Indian restaurant, a number of new businesses and restaurants are slated to open in the Cy-Fair area sometime before the end of 2020. Here are six new businesses that have comfirmed plans to open soon.

1. Owners of Mex Taco House on Telge Road in Cypress are targeting September for the opening of a second location at 25410 Hwy. 290, Cypress, near the Skinner Road intersection. The new location will be double the square footage and will feature a drive thru. Officials with Mex Taco House said they are still working on the menu, but are hoping to offer a larger variety of breakfast options. The original location of the eatery opened on Telge Road in 2019. www.mextacohouse.com

Officials with RockBox Fitness hope to open in September at 8196 Barker Cypress Road, Ste. 300, Cypress. The boxing studio specializes in one-hour full-body workouts that incorporate boxing techniques. Presales for memberships began in August. www.rockboxfitness.com/cypress

3. A new office, warehouse and showroom space for Cubiture is slated to open by the end of September at 10707 Telge Road, Houston. The commercial-grade office furniture company specializes in commercial furnishings, new cubicle systems and remanufactured Herman Miller cubicle systems. In addition to selling a variety of office furniture, the business also provides various services, such as custom millwork, relocation, storage and flooring. Due to COVID-19, the new location is being designed with new applications that use frameless, clear, tempered glass to help minimize the spread of airborne pathogens in the workplace. 713-460-1037. www.cubiture.com

4. A new location of the Katy-based Indian restaurant Kurry Walah will open in early September at 12714 Grant Road, Cypress. Owner Deepak Nagpal, who has been running the Katy location since June 2018, said he has been wanting to open a restaurant in Cypress for over a year and had been looking for the right location. The restaurant specializes in authentic, northern Indian-style food and offers dine-in, takeout and delivery through most major services.
All staff for the new location has been hired, Nagpal said, and the opening is pending a final inspection from the Harris County Fire Marshal's Office. 832-698-4966. www.kurrywalah.com

Officials announced in August that a new location of First Watch would be opening in late November at the new building that also houses Houston Methodist offices, 9915 Barker Cypress Road, Cypress. The cafe offers classic breakfast items, such as omelets and pancakes, in addition to avocado toast, wraps, breakfast tacos, salads, sandwiches and fresh juices. www.firstwatch.com

6. Officials with Tiff's Treats announced in a Facebook post that a new location would be opening at the Hwy. 290 and FM 1960 intersection sometime before the end of a year. The store, which will be located next-door to French Press Coffee House, will offer baked-to-order cookies that are delivered directly to homes and offices. www.cookiedelivery.com
