Big news for fans of Hickory Hollow. Braun Enterprises sent out an e-mail blast about restaurant space for lease at 101 Heights Avenue. That is currently the home of long time restaurant Hickory Hollow.
CultureMap reports that owner Tony Riedel has sold the property but that the Fallbrook location will remain open.
“I’ve been at this for 50 years. I’ll be 70 this year. It’s time to step back,” Riedel told CultureMap. “I’m working towards that, which I imagine will be 2020 [when that happens.] This is step number one.”
Riedel told CultureMap that Braun approached him two years ago about buying the 4,400 square foot building – and its ample parking lot. Some recent health scares convinced Riedel at last to sell.
Braun’s Zach Wolf said that Riedel will be consolidating the business in his Fallbrook location at the end of January 2019.
“We are actively marketing this property to restaurant users,” Wolf told The Leader. “We strongly value well placed inner loop second generation restaurants. This building has a unique history and it is important to Braun Enterprises to try and preserve that. The property is directly across the street from the brand new mixed-use HEB. There is already tremendous traffic in this area and it will only increase with this project. The area only continues to get more dense with office and apartments.”
