Music Factory adding restaurants with FW connection

Toyota Music Factory is set to open 11 restaurants, including six from Big Beat Dallas.

Big Beat Dallas is the creation of someone known to many in Fort Worth: Billy Bob Barnett, the namesake and creator of Billy Bob’s Texas. Each of its six restaurant and bar concepts will have its own live music stage with genre-specific artists performing daily.

Along with the restaurants, Toyota Music Factory announced the March 19 opening of Texas Lottery Plaza, an open-air central gathering space that includes a full-production performance stage for all types of live entertainment and community events. The Music Factory is located on Las Colinas Boulevard in Irving.

Joining the 10 restaurants already open at Toyota Music Factory, the following will open in March:

• Highway 61 South opening March 18 – Inspired by the blues clubs and performance halls along U.S. Highway 61, it will offer juke-joint inspired cocktails, regional craft beers on tap and traditional Texas barbecue. This is a Big Beat Dallas concept.

• Texas Jam House opening March 18 – Open 24 hours a day, Texas Jam House is a place of Southern hospitality and scratch recipes and another Big Beat Dallas concept.

• TCBY, The Country’s Best Yogurt, opening in March – TCBY is a pioneer in soft serve yogurt, premium smoothies and frozen coffee drinks.

“When we planned Toyota Music Factory, our ultimate goal was to provide guests with a truly unique all-encompassing diversified dining and entertainment experience,” said Noah Lazes, president of ARK Group.

“The variety of restaurants, coupled with entertainment at Texas Lottery Plaza and the Toyota Music Factory Pavilion by Live Nation as well as Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, creates an unparalleled fun-filled environment,” Lazes said. “The Texas Lottery Plaza is truly the heart and center of the Toyota Music Factory with more than 20 entertainment and dining destinations just steps away.”

The Alamo Drafthouse Cinema, an eight-screen movie theater, will open the first week of April and Kitchen 101 and the Violet Room will open this summer.



A full-service fitness club dedicated to basketball has opened its first location in North Texas, zeroing in on Sandy Lake Business Center’s youth-driven tenant roster as the catalyst for a 10-year lease.

PickUp USA Fitness is occupying a 16,936-square-foot end cap in an industrial flex project at 989 W. Sandy Lake Road in Coppell. The new tenant has filled the 57,302-square-foot Sandy Lake Business Center’s only vacancy, a former taekwondo studio.

“This project appeals to youth-oriented tenants because of the vast number of rooftops in the immediate area,” said Erik Blais, vice president of Dallas-based Bradford Commercial Real Estate Services. The roster also includes Jill Rejeannes Dance Machine and Mohler Mixed Martial Arts plus Electronic Output Solutions Inc. and ProSource Flooring.

“Sandy Lake Business Center has always had a kind of retail aspect because of its visibility and accessibility to Texas 121,” said Blais, who represents the landlord, H2C Enterprises Inc.

PickUp USA Fitness’s courts are available to high school, college and pick-up teams. The club is outfitted with the latest basketball equipment, including shooting practice machines, and offers private training and classes by professionals. Games for adults and youth are held six days a week. It also has cardio and weight rooms.

Allyson Yost and Cole Hooper of Colliers International represented the local franchisee, Mosley Basketball. California-based PickUp USA Fitness also has operators in Houston and in Arizona, Florida and Nevada.

Sandy Lake Business Center was developed in 2005 on a four-acre tract. The immediate neighborhood includes North Lake College’s north campus.



City Electric Supply, a family-owned wholesale business headquartered in Dallas, is expanding to Kennedale.

“This location is unique because Kennedale has several mid-sized contractors who need supplies but no direct stores in the vicinity,” said District Manager Mitchell Caulder.

CES operates more than 462 branches in 28 states. The Kennedale store is located in a renovated grocery store and has the latest technology and finishings to accommodate the rapidly growing area.

“Kennedale is an up-and-coming area that still boasts a small-town feel,” said Branch Manager Phillip McKinney. “It’s a close-knit community and we are very fortunate to be in such a great town.”

The branch is in a new shopping market near Town Center Park. Its grand opening is planned for April.
