NewQuest Properties has landed a Texas newcomer, Wag N’ Wash Food & Bakery, for the second phase of the grocery-anchored community retail center in North Richland Hills.

Wag N’ Wash Food & Bakery has taken 4,844 square foot space in an 8,500-square foot building that started on a speculative basis and is now fully leased. The balance of the class A space was pre-leased to Banfield Vet Clinic. The building will deliver in April, jumpstarting tenant finish-outs. Both businesses will open in late summer.

“The franchisee wanted to bring this concept to Dallas/Fort Worth. He’s planning to open in a few more markets in DFW,” said Josh Friedlander, associate for NewQuest Properties, developer of the Kroger-anchored shopping center in Tarrant County.

Colorado-based Wag N’ Wash was named “Retailer of the Year for Concept and Innovation” in February by Pet Product News. The chain has 15 shops in eight states, with Texas adding one more in a portfolio of corporate-owned and franchise locations. In addition to retail products, each store offers full-service grooming for cats and dogs, all natural foods and pet washing, including self-washing stations.
