Mudsmith says goodbye to Lower Greenville

After eight years of slinging lattes on Lower Greenville, Mudsmith has officially called it quits. According to CultureMap, owner Brooke Humphries cited street construction and declining revenues as reasons for the closure. Fans of the shop shouldn’t be completely devastated, though — a new outpost of Mudsmith will open at the new HG Sply Co. in Trophy Club soon.

Coolgreens opens in Richardson

Health-obsessed salad chain Coolgreens has opened at Richardson’s CityLine development. Per a press release, the restaurant kicked open the doors on Tuesday, October 1, and is now serving salads, grain bowls, and sandwiches at 1251 State Street, Suite 850. This is the second Dallas-area restaurant for the chain, which also operates an outpost in Southlake and has plans for a third location at Old Town Dallas in 2020.

Sugarbacon bows out of McKinney

Also in closure news: McKinney’s Sugarbacon Proper Kitchen has also closed its doors. A post to the restaurant’s Facebook page on Tuesday announced the abrupt, “effective immediately” closure. “It is with heavy hearts that we have decided to close the restaurant,” the post reads. “It wasn’t a decision we took lightly, but we have decided it is time.”
