Businesses choose to open in The Woodlands for a multitude of reasons: a vibrant shopping and dining scene, natural beauty, walking trails. Everyone has something different that drew them to The Woodlands, and we wanted to hear it from the business owners themselves. Why The Woodlands?

"From the moment our team landed in Houston the ultimate objective was to spread our wings throughout the greater Houston area. Never in a million years did we think that Market Street would come knocking on our doors with such an amazing opportunity.

Having traveled to The Woodlands for a variety of events and even for the Co-Owners wedding at the gorgeous Peach Orchard Venue, we knew The Woodlands was the prime community for Bosscat Kitchen to expand into. Once we were contacted by Market Street for such a prime location, the move itself seemed serendipitous. All the stars aligned bringing our team, our families and this amazing community together with the opening of Bosscat kitchen and Libations in February of 2023. From day one we have been welcomed with open arms and treated like locals that have been woven into the community for years."

"In addition to the stellar reputation that The Woodlands has for its community, lifestyle and preservation, we felt that with patio dining being such a signature component of a true Parisian dining experience and our concept, that there wasn't a better space to offer our guests than the natural beauty and serenity of the The Woodlands. Specifically, our Creekside Park West location lends itself to an enclosed patio dining experience that will leave the guest feeling like they took a brief culinary trip outside of Texas!"
