Easy Tiger Bake Shop and Beer Garden will open its second location in late 2015. The popular purveyor of bread, sandwiches, pretzels, beer and more will be located at The Linc, the shopping strip located between I-35 and Highland Mall. The shopping center is already home to thew new incarnation of Vivo.
The new space will have a similar look and feel to the existing shop, with interior design overseen once again by Veronica Koltuniak of VeroKolt. The site will also include a drive-through coffee bar, 250 outdoor seats, ping-pong tables, a dog park and an outdoor stage that will occasionally host live music – as well as tons of free parking.
Veronica Koltuniak of VeroKolt is designing the new space, which will be similar in aesthetic to the Sixth Street location. The new Easy Tiger will also feature a drive-thru coffee bar, a dog park, an outdoor stage, 250 outdoor seats and ample free parking.
The 11,500-square-foot space will be about triple the size of the original and will include a commercial bakery that will service other restaurants and cafes around town.
"The wholesale bakery sales at Easy Tiger have greatly exceeded our expectations, and we are producing twice what we estimated would be our overall capacity at the Sixth Street location," says head baker David Norman. "We currently deliver fresh-baked bread to more than 50 commercial customers, but we haven’t been able to accommodate any additional account requests in almost eight months – and that includes three out of the five local Whole Foods locations."
