DALLAS – Jan. 25, 2016 – Trademark Property Co., the operating partner for The Shops at Highland Village, is pleased to announce that Torchy’s Tacos has signed a lease for 5,262 square feet at the recently renovated shopping center. In addition, Runway Seven’s flagship store will relocate this spring to a larger space across the property, next to Claire’s and across from Zumiez and Buckle.

“We’ve received positive feedback on the renovations to The Shops at Highland Village, and are pleased that prospective tenants are taking notice,” said Terry Montesi, CEO of Trademark. “With the renovations complete, I am confident Torchy’s Tacos will be the first of many new tenants to sign at the center.”

Torchy’s Tacos started out as a food trailer in Austin and has grown to include more than 30 locations in Texas alone. Menu favorites include green chile pork, beef barbacoa, fried avocado, seared ahi tuna, blackened salmon and several other customizable options. The taco shop will have a full bar featuring local beers and craft cocktails.

“We are thrilled to have Torchy’s Tacos open its first location in Highland Village this year, and it will be a great, fast-casual dining option for our guests,” said Ravi Wadhwa, general manager for The Shops at Highland Village. “It’s also a very exciting transition for Runway Seven to its new, larger location that will become their new prototype. Our mix of local and national retailers and restaurants make The Shops at Highland Village a wonderful place to shop, dine and gather.”
