Things are shoring up quickly at USC Village, the mixed-use project landing as part of the greater University of Southern California campus experience. Buildings are expected to begin opening as soon as August, and now a whole slew of food and beverage names have been confirmed as tenants.
Among the bigger names is Trejo’s Tacos, the Danny Trejo-backed Mexican food empire that has most recently been expanding into the coffee and doughnuts game in Hollywood. And then there’s Wahlburgers, the East Coast burger chain from Mark Wahlberg and family.
Right after that comes names like Rance’s Chicago Pizza, which only recently debuted its deep dish pizza at a new location in the heart of Long Beach. Hannah An of the famed Beverly Hills An restaurant family will also be expanding, bringing an unknown concept dubbed District H. Other names now confirmed for the project:
The Baked Bear
Cafe Dulce (going only by Dulce here)
Greenleaf Gourmet ChopShop
And those names are in addition to the BBCM, Honeybird, and and Rock & Reilly’s that were previously discussed. Most of these names are hoping to come online by late August or early September, bringing a massive new dining wave to the University Park space as of the fall.
