With existing, vacant real estate at a premium, new dining concepts headed to Spring Mountain Road are turning to business centers for easy to upgrade rental spaces.
Two new tenants are headed to the Mountain Point Business Park, already a very successful home base for Hobak Korean BBQ on the western corner. Moving into space #109 will be Ramen Hashi, building a thin 1,301-square-foot restaurant. WG Constructors, whose previous portfolio includes Yui Edomae Sushi, Shang Artisan Noodle and Hobak eight doors down, have begun the remodel.
And new paperwork also points to a familiar international brand making its first expansion to Nevada. Chatime will take over 2,015-square-foot in space #108. The Chatime name is synonymous with the Taiwanese franchise juggernaut that has grown to more than 1,000 locations in 30 countries, since 2003. The chain currently operates locations in Boston, New York and California.
While yet to be confirmed, Chatime has a track record of being quick to legally pounce on any venture sharing the same the name and concept. On its menu, bubble teas, "special milk" choices like oolong and taro, "fruity juicy" options, smoothies and other specials, like "herbal jelly with fresh milk" and "matcha mousse."
An arrival timetable for either concept has yet to be announced.
