Jakes Hamburgers will celebrate its 30th anniversary by opening a new location in Flower Mound at the beginning of April.
The burger joint, which uses meat ground at the Fort Worth Stockyards, will occupy the corner of FM 3040 and Gerault Road. The restaurant offers breakfast, lunch and dinner. It will include a full bar and patio, with servers and bartenders.
Marty Garvey co-owns the local chain with his brother, Greg.
“We’re looking forward to opening out in Flower Mound,” he said. “There are not quite enough good food options in that part of town, so we feel like it’s a good fit for the town and our restaurant.”
It will be the local chain’s ninth location. For updates, visit jakesuptown.com.
Flower Mound resident Mani Bhushan will open the third location of his fast-casual restaurant Taco Ocho by early summer in the River Walk Market shopping center, next to Market Street. It will serve food inspired by classic Latin cuisine. For more information, visit tacoocho.com.
Since late November, In-N-Out Burgers has been serving its popular west coast style burgers to The Colony. The new 3,750 square foot restaurant is located on the southwest corner of the Sam Rayburn Tollway and Plano Parkway — across from the Nebraska Furniture Mart. For more information, visit in-n-out.com.
Panera Bread will also open near the Grandscape development. City Council approved development plans for a 4,300 square-foot restaurant at its Feb. 17 meeting. The restaurant will be directly west of In-N-Out. According to Planning and Zoning commission minutes, the company plans to start building in late March, open by July.

Raising Cane’s scheduled to open its first location in The Colony at 3851 Plano Parkway, just south of the other developments, in June.
“I have received feedback from many of our customers that they have been waiting for a Raising Cane’s to open in The Colony, so we believe this is a win for everybody,” Luke Overman, Area Director of Operations said in a press release.
This will be the Louisiana-based chain’s 28th restaurant in the Dallas-Fort Worth area. It will be the company’s first location built with new and larger prototype specifications. For more information, visit raisingcanes.com.
