3 UNIQUE FOOD & BEVERAGE CONCEPTS AT CENTENNIAL SHOPPING CENTERS


Read on for a few great examples of how our Local Leasing and Business Development team is injecting a little extra foodie fun into our portfolio of shopping centers this summer:


1. BRINGING A SIP & SHOP EXPERIENCE TO FOX VALLEY MALL





A day of retail therapy just got a whole lot more fun at Fox Valley Mall, where Tapville Social recently opened their innovative, self-serve “Pour & Go” kiosk. Guests (age 21+) can pour their own craft beer, wine, or other alcoholic beverage and take advantage of the mall’s unique “strolling” permit, which allows you to enjoy sipping and strolling freely throughout the mall. Tapville Social also hosts fun and engaging events like craft beer tastings, wine pairings, live music, and educational workshops. Cheers to making your shopping trip a bit more memorable at Fox Valley Mall!



2. A UNIQUE FOOD & WINE FESTIVAL AT BRAZOS MALL





After over a year of countless canceled or postponed events, we are all eager to (safely) socialize face-to-face and enjoy in-person gatherings once again – and nothing says summer quite like an outdoor festival! This July, Brazos Mall is inviting the community to come out and enjoy its first ever outdoor wine festival. While a shopping center may not seem like the typical venue for such an event, the property’s ample outdoor space and available parking make it the perfect host location. The Lake Jackson Wine Festival will be a family-friendly event, featuring wine tastings from local Texas wineries, musical entertainment, and even tethered hot air balloon rides overlooking Lake Jackson!



3. REDEFINING “MALL FOOD” AT MAINPLACE MALL





MainPlace Mall is home to Open Market OC, where guests can enjoy shopping hundreds of local makers, curators, and other small businesses, all under one roof. Spend a day browsing the market, and one such local operator you’ll find is Mbites Food. As a family-run business that was created in response to changing lifestyle habits during the pandemic, Mbites Food serves as a great example of how local businesses can reinvent the typical “mall food” experience. Rather than opening another quick service eatery synonymous with shopping centers, Mbites Food recognized the increased demand for at-home meal options, and so offers its menu of healthy, authentic Latin American dishes in two ways: ready-to-eat or frozen. For added convenience, their delicious empanadas, arepas and more are also available for at-home delivery. Adapting to changing consumer needs and habits has made Mbites Food a success!



IN CONCLUSION


From outdoor festivals to serving up fresh, authentic cuisine, Centennial’s Local Leasing and Business Development team is here to help make your local food & beverage business or concept a reality! To learn more: Contact Us.
