    On Monday, April 25, fast-casual chain Newk’s Eatery is bringing its signature brand of fresh, flavorful dining to San Marcos, Texas, with the grand opening of the city’s first Newk’s restaurant. Known for its dynamic, bold flavors, fresh ingredients, and hospitality, the rapidly growing brand’s newest restaurant on Interstate 35 will be serving up fresh, handcrafted salads, artisan pizzas, hot-toasted sandwiches, kettle batch soups, and scratch-made desserts seven days a week.

    Located at 1285 S Interstate 35 Frontage Road, Newk’s latest restaurant in the Austin-San Antonio corridor will officially open its doors at 10:30 a.m. on Monday and offer indoor dining for 142 guests and patio dining for 42 more in its 4,405-square-foot space. The San Marcos restaurant will provide job opportunities for approximately 70 local applicants and is the first of five locations planned to open in the Austin metro area by 2019 by seasoned restaurateurs Colby Kaminer and Todd Jackson. This will ultimately grow the Newk’s franchise team’s existing Texas footprint to a total of 10 eateries.

No matter if you’re looking to grab a quick bite or savor time with friends and family, we’re in a prime location right on Interstate 35 with a menu ranging from Deep Southern to Asian-inspired cuisine that can satisfy cravings across the grid.”
