This new restaurant has a prime location next to the home of the NFL’s Houston Texans, Reliant Stadium. The restaurant is on the retail level of a 300-unit apartment complex and right down the street from the Texas Medical Center, which has over 100,000 patients daily and employees 50,000 people, further solidifying the restaurant’s exposure.

The Spicy Pickle CEO, Marc Geman, regarding the location was quoted as saying: “This location is in the middle of our target demographic serving both the daytime residential and entertainment complexes frequented by our typical customer. It will also serve beer and wine to accommodate an early evening and dinner business. The restaurant will keep extended hours to accommodate its customers. We believe that this will be a very busy location.”

The Bread Garden Café is the third recently that has been opened in the downtown area by a franchisee and the fifth overall.
