H-E-B officials and McKinney city leaders broke ground on Thursday on the new H-E-B store located on the northeast corner of Custer Road and Eldorado Parkway.

The new store is slated to open in late 2023. This will be the company’s third store currently under construction in the DFW Metroplex. The other two are located in Frisco and Plano.

“We are thrilled to be breaking ground on our third store in Collin County in the vibrant community of McKinney,” said Juan-Carlos Rück, H-E-B executive vice president of North West Food Drug. “Our company, just like the city of McKinney, has a rich history in Texas. We have a passion and commitment to serve the cities in which we operate. We look forward to adding more than 500 McKinney Partners to our H-E-B family and giving back to organizations that help this area thrive.”

“Today is an exciting day for our community as we break ground on this highly-anticipated store in the City of McKinney. H-E-B is famous for its wildly committed fanbase and unwavering commitment to the communities they serve,” said McKinney Mayor George Fuller. “We are proud to be part of the growing H-E-B family in Texas and give our residents more options to keep their dollars local.”
