SAN ANTONIO - The "compact urban market" with several locations in Austin, Royal Blue Grocery, is set to open its first location in San Antonio on Houston Street.
Royal Blue will move into the historic Savoy building by late Fall 2018, developer Weston Urban announced in a media release.
The chain already has six locations in Austin and one in Dallas' Highland Park Village.
Its stores provide grocery options, Stumptown coffee and other "grab-and-go offerings."
Weston Urban said each Royal Blue Grocery is "tailored to the neighborhood it serves."
“The Houston Street location and the opportunity to partner with Weston Urban in this emerging district of San Antonio made this opportunity a no-brainer for us,” said Royal Blue Grocery Co-Owner Craig Staley.
The developer said market-rate housing on Houston Street and job creation in the area helped motivate the company's decision to expand to San Antonio.
“We hope to bring something to [San Antonio] that will be additive to the neighborhood and the sense of community that Weston Urban has already built. It feels like an exciting time for San Antonio, and we’re happy to be part of it," Staley said in the release.
