Forney permits approved; new businesses and re-openings

FORNEY, Texas — The City of Forney Economic Development Corporation (EDC) recently announced the August Commercial Permits that were approved. Amongst those permits were Wilson Elementary School, Tom Thumb, a new Dental Office, and Nothing Bundt Cakes.

In a release on Facebook, the Forney EDC said that the Nothing Bundt Cake permit is especially welcomed news for the community.

“We know a lot of you have been waiting on Nothing Bundt Cakes so you will be happy to see them and NobiliTea on the list.”

Nothing Bundt Cakes, which received their finish out permit, is going in off 548 and College Ave. next to the 7-Eleven. NobiliTea, in the Kroger shopping center, received their finish out/remodel/addition permit. In the same Kroger shopping center, Dorado Nail Bar was also granted their finish out permit.

The Gateway Business Park will have two buildings, and is expected to bring many jobs to the region. The EDC said in their release that this will be good for future full service restaurants.

“These industrial buildings will bring more employees to Forney which means we will have more people here during the day. An increase in daytime population means more interest from full service restaurants.”

The Forney EDC is working to attract a wider variety of businesses and increase the number of jobs and amenities for Forney residents.

In July, the EDC announced GNC’s finish out permit, Wingstops remodel/addition permit, and Chic-Fil-A’s canopy permit, amongst others.

When will these new establishments be opening their doors? The EDC says to be on the lookout for more information in the coming months.
