H-E-B is making its way into Tarrant County, the grocery chain announced Thursday.

The Texas-based retailer known for its butter tortillas and local produce said it will build a new store in Mansfield, Texas, about 20 minutes south of Fort Worth. It will be the first confirmed H-E-B grocery store in Tarrant County.

"The store builds on the company's longstanding presence in the area and reinforces its commitment to serve more customers in this dynamic and growing part of Texas," the company said in a release.

H-E-B owns about 28 acres at the site, located on the corner of U.S. 287 and Broad Street.

"Additional details will be shared at the store's groundbreaking, which is expected early next year," the company said.

"For years our residents have asked for an H-E-B, and on behalf of the City Council, we are proud to welcome this economic driver and much desired business to Mansfield," Mansfield Mayor Michael Evans said in a release.

Mansfield's council previously expressed the community's growing need for an H-E-B location and courted the company for support.

Back in 2018, zoning changes indicated a Mansfield H-E-B would be nearly 107,000 square feet with its own restaurant including a drive-thru and outdoor patio. But at the time, H-E-B remained coy about plans to open a store or start construction.

H-E-B has bought up land throughout North Texas for several years teasing expansion into the metroplex. Locations in Burleson and Hudson Oaks inched closer to Tarrant County, but Mansfield's new store will be the first to cross county lines.

H-E-B Grocery Company LP has more than 420 stores and 145,000 employees across Texas and Mexico. H-E-B sees $34 billion in annual sales and is the largest food retailer and private employer in Texas.
