Whole Foods 365 Opens in Cedar Park

Whole Foods 365 Cedar ParkWhole Foods is venturing into Cedar Park with a new 365 store opened on April 26. I decided to stop by and check it out since the new store is very conveniently on the way to most commuters in Leander and Cedar Park. They’re new address is

The overall goal of 365 is to provide less expensive groceries and products than the flagship location in downtown Austin. They do that by focusing on Whole Foods’ in-house brand, and a limited selection of other products.

The first 365 opened in Los Angeles, followed by Lake Oswego, Oregon and Bellevue, Washington with Brooklyn and Oakland locations coming soon.

Easy Tiger JuicelandI was also pleased to see that Whole Foods is partnering with local restaurants from Austin. Easy Tiger is a local craft bakery and brewery/beer garden. They’re based on 6th Street in Austin but will now have a space with 365 in Cedar Park. JuiceLand is another Austin original, a socially conscious juice bar that offers tips on cleansing and healthy eating. They will now be in 365. Snap Kitchen, the one stop shop for healthy meals, will also have a location in the store. Garbo’s will also have a stand selling their famous lobster rolls. Whole Foods will also have their popular mochi bar as well as the taqueria, where customers can order tacos, burritos, and tortas.

Whole Foods 365 and their partners will be great additions to the Cedar Park and Leander communities. HEB has always had a selection of fresh and frozen organic and healthy foods and other products, but this will be an entire store focused on healthy groceries, healthy eating, and the lifestyle. Whole Foods will be more of a destination for shopping and dining, possibly attracting people from outside the city as well.

I also support the Whole Foods focus on the “Triple Bottom Line”. The company makes decisions based on three concerns. 1. Profit – Does the decision lead to making money. 2. People – Does the decision help people be their best? 3. Planet – Are we improving our environment? These are the core values of Whole Foods and they’re the same values I live and work by as a Texas Realtor® and citizen.
