It took years for H-E-B to make its way to North Texas, but it has now moved to the Fort Worth market. (Central Market on Interstate 30 and Hullen Street is an H-E-B concept.)

 Courtesy of Debra Hale Hillwood While H-E-B has stores in Hudson Oaks and Burleson, the store in Alliance will be its first store in Tarrant County. "HEB owns multiple properties throughout the region and is very strategic about when and where they invest," Robert Stearns, Fort Worth's chief of economic development for the city, said in an emailed statement.

“We are excited that they are moving forward with this store in one of the fastest growing areas of Fort Worth and I look forward to seeing other investments over the next few years.” The news comes weeks after the grocery chain announced the groundbreaking of a location in Allen in mid-May.

The Fort Worth H-E-B location will join a recent expansion to North Texas, with an approved location in Forney, a Kaufman County town about 55 miles east of Fort Worth, which was announced in March. H-E-B also broke ground at McKinney, Plano and Frisco locations. Construction has yet to begin for the location in Forney, but the McKinney store is expected to be completed in 2023, with Plano and Frisco stores expected to open in the fall.

 H-E-B bought the land in Mansfield in 2016, but there was no word on when construction would begin six years later. During the city council meeting on 10 February, Mansfield City Council addressed the H-E-B company leaders present at the meeting regarding the need and desire to start construction. Mansfield councilor Casey Lewis promised that the city would do anything to work with H-E-B to build the store.

Despite encouraging words from council members and the mayor, company leaders have not set a time frame for when ground will be broken on the property. In groundbreaking Plano, Juan-Carlos Roque, vice president of food and drugs for H-E-B's Northwest division, told the Star-Telegram that the company isn't in a rush to make a decision on expansion.

 “We are starting out here [in Plano and Frisco], but obviously we are committed to the Metroplex,” Ruck said. "Our interest is to serve all metroplexes over time with all our formats."
