Colorado-based Smiling Moose Deli is planning to open a location at UT Arlington’s College Park district in November, its second North Texas location.
Former Dallas Cowboy Daryl "Moose" Johnston as a partner in the chain. In 2011, it opened a store in Carrollton. Other locations are planned for Frisco and Denton next year, according to Jennifer Frank, managing partner of Smiling Moose Deli DFW.
"We love the college environment and the diversity of the restaurants in the College Park District," Frank said.
Smiling Moose Deli has leased 2,100 square feet off Pecan Street and becomes the seventh College Park restaurant, UTA said.
Coolberry Frozen Yogurt is expected to open this month immediately north of where the deli will go. Digg’s Taco Shop is scheduled to open to the south, also in November.
Smiling Moose Deli at UT Arlington will be open from 7 a.m. to 10 p.m.
