When Whole Foods 365 opens in Houston, the affordable sibling to the original organic-focused grocery store will house two Houston restaurants.

The budget-friendly destination for kale and granola will open its first location in Houston in Independence Heights at 101 North Loop West in August, according to a press release. For shoppers unfamiliar with the concept, Whole Foods 365 was designed to be a more streamlined version of its predecessor, with a pared down selection of organic groceries, pastured meats, sustainable seafood, and of course, the grab-and-go options that many Houstonians are already eating for lunch right now.

Whole Foods 365 will also be home to two Texas restaurants, including an outpost of fast-casual South African chain Peli Peli Kitchen, which will add a full selection of breakfast dishes to its menu of tacos, sandwiches, and salads. Also opening at the grocery store is Austin’s Juice Society, a juice bat that will serve smoothie bowls, fresh-pressed juices, and coffee.

Whole Foods 365 will make its Houston debut on August 22.
