Jersey Mike’s, Bath & Body Works coming to Granbury

Posted

It’s no secret that Hood County continues to grow — but the recent announcement that two well-known businesses are now planning locations in Granbury is definitive proof that this small town is slowly transitioning to a big city.

The two new businesses — Jersey Mike’s Subs and Bath & Body Works — will soon set up shop in Granbury, according to the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation.

JERSEY MIKE’S SUBS

Jersey Mike’s Subs officially registered with the TDLR March 27, and is planning a 2,065 square foot location at 714 East U.S. Highway 377, Suites 726 and 728 in Cellular World Plaza — a location previously occupied by Papa John’s Pizza.

The privately funded project will cost an estimated $429,787 with renovations scheduled to start July 24, and a completion date of Oct. 29.

With nearby locations in Weatherford, Benbrook and Fort Worth, Jersey Mike’s Subs is an American submarine sandwich chain headquartered in New Jersey. It is also one of the largest sandwich chains in the United States.

Jersey Mike's offers a wide variety of both hot and cold subs to hungry customers across the country, according to the Tasting Table. Cold subs come in three sizes — mini, regular and giant — while hot subs are only available in the regular and giant sizes.

BATH & BODY WORKS

Although Jersey Mike’s will be a fan-favorite for many, the excitement for Bath & Body Works is unmatched for local fragrance lovers.

According to the TDLR, BBW is planning a 5,115 square foot location at 3736 E. U.S. Highway 377 in the Luton Ranch strip mall next to Ross Dress for Less.

The privately funded project will cost an estimated $350,000; renovations will begin June 24. The project completion date is currently scheduled for Aug. 23.

With nearby locations in Weatherford, Burleson and Fort Worth, Bath & Body Works is known as the “go-to place” for soaps, lotions, fragrances and candles.

The popular American retail shop was founded in 1990 in Ohio. As of Feb. 21, there are currently 1,743 Bath & Body Works locations in the U.S., according to ScrapeHero.

“New businesses usually ask the city to keep their plans confidential, giving them the opportunity to share their news with the public,” Director of Economic Development Lance LaCour told the Hood County News via email. “The City Economic Development Department is currently working on multiple projects that would bring nationally known retailers to Granbury, as well as recruiting other, more industrial-related projects. When these projects come to fruition, they provide residents new job opportunities, new options for products and services, and potentially lower property taxes for residents because of the boost in sales tax revenue.”

While plans are now in place for Jersey Mike’s Subs and Bath & Body Works to come to Granbury this year, opening dates have not yet been set for either business.

The Hood County News will continuously update this story as more information becomes available.
