Business Beat: Wright on a Food Truck Returns to Longview Business beat

Harleton’s Wright on Taco & BBQ will celebrate the grand opening of its food truck in Longview on Thursday.

“We’re really excited,” said Julie Wright, who and her husband Brian started the restaurant almost six years ago. The food truck will be located Thursday through Saturday at Spindletop Market, a former US 259 ​​Bar K Ranch store north of Longview.

“We were really trying to find a central place to make it easier for people to find us,” she said.

The regular working hours of the food truck will be 3pm to 8pm on Thursdays and Fridays and 10am – a sale on Saturday, which according to Wright will probably be between 2pm and 3pm (Wright said that they chose these hours because they didn’t want to break into another food truck that already works there, which serves tacos and tamales for breakfast.)

The place where they will find is also home to other food trucks, such as Shivers Natural Snow. The original Wright on Tacos in Harlton will continue to operate normally.

The food truck will include some of the restaurant’s famous products, including Hannah Taco, which is a grilled chicken baked in queso. However, Wright said the food truck would focus more on the restaurant’s barbecue, with sliced ​​breasts and sausage sandwiches, for example.

Rico is closed

A sign on the door of Rico’s Kitchen and Cantina on McCann Road in Longview says it is “permanently closed.”

The slow business environment caused Rico’s Kitchen and Cantina in Longview to close last week, said co-owner Rich Seymour.

A handwritten sign on the door last week said “closed forever.”

“Mexican food – I love it. “I eat it all the time, but they’re everywhere,” Seymour said. “It’s a tough, tough market.”

The future of the restaurant is being discussed, he said, and it is possible that it will change formats.

Rico’s opened about 1217 McCann Road about a year ago in a building that was home to McCann Street Grill for many years.

Seymour also owns Grind & Shine Coffee and Espresso, with locations in Longview Mall and Diana. He also owns Pizza House, with a venue that opened about eight months ago in Clarksville and one that debuted last week in Pittsburgh. Seymour said he had plans to open a pizzeria in Longview.

A clinic is planned in the center

Beverly Clinic

The new location of The Beverly Clinic is under construction for 602 E. Methvin St. in the center of Longview.

Dr. Daytral Brown, a practicing nurse, moved her family clinic to downtown Longview later this year.

The new location of The Beverly Clinic is under construction for 602 E. Methvin St. Brown said he expects to move his office there from Judson Road in September or October.

She chose to build on Methvin Street because the area is “underdeveloped.” It is also close to other health facilities, including Christus Good Shepherd and Open Imaging.

“He is on the bus route. It was also important to me so that patients could have transport to and from their appointments, “Brown said. “It turned out to be the perfect place.”

Brown serves patients 5 years of age and older as their primary care provider. She will expand her services to the new location with the addition of her new emergency clinic Vita Health, and another practicing nurse will be added to her practice.

Grand opening of Sephora

Sephora will celebrate its grand opening on Wednesday at Kohl’s, at 3096 N. Eastman Road, Suite 100 in Longview. Sephora is a “prestigious” retailer of makeup, skin care, hair and perfumes, including brands such as Rare Beauty, NARS, Charlotte Tilbury, Kiehl’s, Giorgio Armani, Olaplex and Sephora Collection. Sephora also has a location inside JCPenney in Longview Mall.
