HTeaO Cedar Park announces opening day

Signage is up and furniture and fixtures are in place at the new HTeaO Cedar Park location at the intersection of New Hope Drive and Bagdad Road, behind the 7-11 convenience store. According to an announcement on the HTeaO Cedar Park facebook page, the much-anticipated iced tea purveyor will open its doors to the public at noon on Friday, December 4.

“It’s official!!! We are ecstatic to announce we are 21 days from firing up the brewers for our “Safe Opening”. Mark your calendars for Friday December 4th to come enjoy 24 flavors of #TexasStyle iced tea.” – HTeaO Cedar Park facebook page

HTeaO has around 20 freestanding and strip-center tea shops across the state. The Lubbock-based chain evolved out of the brisk drive through tea business that Kim and Gary Hutchins did from their Buns Over Texas restaurants. Their strategic decision to build a new restaurant with a separate brand, storefront, and drive through just focusing on premium teas and water turned out to be a bigger business than burgers.

Currently, the chain has 19 locations open and several more, including Cedar Park, listed as “coming soon” on the HTeaO website.
