365 by Whole Foods Market is opening in Cedar Park at 5001 183A Toll Rd., #16 on April 26th – this is the first store in Texas and the 4th one in the nation! This is Whole Food’s new low-cost option store concept with affordable fresh produce, grocery items, and ready-to-go prepared foods.

MOCHI ICE CREAM FREEZER
Treat yourself to the mochi ice cream freezer! Flavors include black sesame (my favorite), green tea, strawberry, vanilla, and mango. Whole Foods Domain and Downtown have the mochi ice cream freezer too.
Anyone else hungry while shopping? The taqueria in the back of the store has touch screens for ordering burritos, bowls, tacos, tortas, and pizza. Place your order, do your grocery shopping, and 365 will notify you when your food is ready.
EASY TIGER & JUICELAND ARE LOCATED INSIDE 365
Local partners Easy Tiger and Juiceland have their own spaces inside the store in partnership with 365. Easy Tiger will serve baked goods, bratwursts, coffee, and beer – in addition to serving freshly baked bread that you can buy inside the store. Juiceland will serve juices and smoothies.
100% TRANSPARENT SEAFOOD & MEAT PACKAGING
If you’re a sucker for beautiful packaging, you’ll love 365’s transparent packaging in the meat and seafood departments. Everything is prepackaged and always sustainably sourced. The pre-marinated meats make it super easy for meals at home.
40% PRIVATE LABEL
So you’re wondering – how can Whole Foods be cheap (or cheaper?)? 40% of 365 is private labeled with 365 Everyday Value, compared to 10% at traditional Whole Foods Market stores. The Cedar Park store carries local favorites like Yellowbird Hot Sauce, Kerbey Lane Queso, and P. Terry’s frozen vegan and veggie burgers.
You can also find “flash finds,” which are unique seasonal finds selected by 365 buyers that are new or only available for a limited time.
WINE KIOSK HELPS YOU FIND YOUR PERFECT BOTTLE OF WINE
Overwhelmed in the wine section? 365 store has partnered with the wine app Delectable to provide kiosks where you can scan any bottle of wine and see user-generated ratings and reviews.
The wine department has more than 400 wines and the majority of bottles are priced at or below twenty dollars. Cheers to that! ?
