LaCenterra welcomes Torchy's Tacos, Langford Market

LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch will celebrate its second new store in a three-week period when Torchy's Tacos opens June 12. Langford Market, a Houston-based fashion boutique opened on May 24.



Torchy's Tacos announced its LaCenterra location early in 2014. The Austin-based Tex-Mex chain offers a variety of specialty tacos for breakfast, lunch and dinner. The LaCenterra location will offer local craft beers from Katy's No Label Brewery and Houston's Karbach and St. Arnold breweries.



For the June 12 grand opening, Torchy's will offer one free breakfast taco for each customer from 7 a.m.–10 a.m.



Vanessa Mulloy, marketing assistant for Vista Properties, which owns LaCenterra, said every post about Torchy's Tacos on LaCenterra's Facebook page has generated a great deal of positive feedback.



"From what I hear, it's going to be quite a turnout," Mulloy said.



Torchy's opening comes three weeks after Langford Market held its grand opening, over Memorial Day Weekend. Langford Market specializes in women's clothing, accessories and gifts. The store often hosts local trunk shows, charity events and private shopping parties.



The LaCenterra store is Langford Market's fifth location in the Houston area. Davina Tweedy, brand manager for Langford Market, said LaCenterra was selected as a home for its newest store because of its appearance and the abundance of tenants locating in the shopping center.



"The center is beautiful and has a lot of great tenants currently and opening soon," Tweedy said. "The Cinco Ranch area is thriving, and we're excited to be a part of the neighborhood."
