Back in July, the Austin-based restaurant Snap Kitchen announced plans to expand to Dallas, opening several stores in early 2014. They have been eying hot retail areas like Preston Hollow and the Park Cities, but no leases have been signed, so we’re still in the dark for now.

Spokesman Daniel Helfman says he plans to know more by March.

“We’re really close to signing leases,” he says, and the challenge is that they’re trying to open several stores at once.

With locations in Austin and Houston, Snap Kitchen serves take-out food for the health-conscious, focusing on fresh, organic produce and “Snap Juice.”

You can order breakfast, lunch, dinner, snacks and desserts that feature full nutrition labels and suit just about any diet including Paleo, gluten-free, vegan and diabetic. Customers can call in orders ahead of time and pick them up curbside — a rather appealing scenario in our neighborhood where parking is scarce during peak hours.

Stay tuned for an announcement in the coming months.
