“Amy’s homed in on this vibrant, active area for their newest location. With neighbors like Hoover’s Home Cooking, Mi Madre’s, Salty Sow, and Eastside Café, this end cap space seemed like an ideal fit for a beloved Austin staple like Amy’s,” said McMurrey.
“We think Amy’s is going to be a great addition to our tenant mix at 2002 Manor and contribute to the continued emergence of Manor Rd. retail and entertainment scene,” said the landlord.
