HOUSTON, TX, December 2022 —Pacific Square of FM LLC purchased a 200,000 SF vacant shopping center at 2224 FM 1960 Rd W, Houston, TX 77090. They plan to occupy over 100,000 SF for their Asian grocery store, Enson Market, and will lease out the remaining space in the center. Casey Ward with CRW Commercial represented the buyer. The seller, Copper Leaf LLC, was represented by Ryan Neyland of Davis Commercial Real Estate.
Enson Market is headquartered in Cincinatti and will be making their first entry into the Texas market. They currently have locations in Florida, Ohio and Minnesota. It is not only a grocery store, but a wholesaler who ships organic Asian groceries across the country with locations large enough to provide both authentic Asian groceries and American brand name staples, but small enough to be in and out in 20 minutes. Due to the already established vertical integration of their supply chain, they're able to supply fresher produce, meat and fish at significantly lower prices than their competitors.
Enson Market also offers a premium shopping experience as their locations have been designed and built by Glenn Williams, who is responsible for Whole Foods. They focus on supermarket retail while integrating foreign trade imports and wholesale enterprises. Enson Market wants to be the bridge between China and the United States by providing a premium shopping experience for American consumers with an interest in Asian cuisines. They plan to open the Houston location in late 2023.
