Mother Road Market Adds Tenants
FOOD CONCEPTS: Chef James Wegner holds a Bodhi’s Bowl creation. Bodhi’s Bowl was recently announced as a future tenant of the Mother Road Market, along with three other companies that all recently graduated from the Kitchen 66 Launch Program.
The Lobeck Taylor Family Foundation () recently announced four new tenants for its Mother Road Market, the tenants all being graduates of the Kitchen 66 Launch Program.
The announced future tenants are Tulsa food businesses Bakeshop, Big Dipper Creamery, Bodhi’s Bowl and The Wurst. These businesses will open 320-square-foot stores in the Mother Road Market, when it opens in late spring.
These restaurant concepts will join anchor tenant Andolini’s, which is developing a new food concept.
“These tenants have been selected because of their unique, diverse, delicious concepts, and we can’t wait for the community to be able to sample all of these different cuisines under one roof,” said Project Manager Shanese Slaton.
