Four new retailers are coming to LaCenterra at Cinco Ranch between now and the beginning of 2023, the outdoor shopping center said Tuesday.

Two of the retailers — Lovesac and PUCCI Café — have already opened in the Katy shopping center located at 23501 Cinco Ranch Blvd. 

Lovesac is a Connecticut-based furniture company renowned for its supersized beanbag chairs called "Sacs" and "sactional" couches that can be easily rearranged into different shapes and configurations. Last week, the company said its sales jumped 45 percent year-over-year for its second quarter.

The second open retailer, PUCCI Café, is a boutique of designer dog accessories and spa products where dog owners can shop while enjoying espresso drinks, beers and wine. The company was founded by a dog-owning couple and donates 5 percent of its sales proceeds to animal rescue organizations.

Crack Shack is a fried chicken restaurant that started in San Diego and has since expanded into the rest of southern California, Utah, Colorado and Nevada. The LaCenterra location is its first in Texas and is set to open this fall. The chain offers a variety of sandwiches and fried chicken by the piece along with other southern California-inspired dishes such as coleslaw made with fresno chilies and poutine topped with pollo asado.

The final retailer, Nando's, is opening two new Houston locations: one at LaCenterra, and one at the Post Oak Plaza in Uptown. The LaCenterra location is set to open later this year or in early 2023, according to the shopping center. Nando's is a South African chicken chain that first came to the U.S. in 2008 and now operates nearly 50 locations across the country. It offers chicken sandwiches, chicken salads, chicken by the piece and more all with its variety of PERi-PERi sauces that range from mild to hot.
