Just one week after opening their first-ever store in Lubbock County, Braum's is opening a second one.

A nearly 6,500-square-foot Braum's, located at 1111 Donald Preston Drive in Wolfforth, will officially open for business on Tuesday, June 9th, 2020.

This is a big get for the city of Wolfforth, whose population in the 2010 census was 3,670. It's also welcome news for folks in Lubbock who have been experiencing some long lines at the first Braum's. The demand for Braum's in Lubbock was so high, in fact, that even on Saturday, Lubbock police officers were coning off the right lane Milwaukee Ave. out front of the store due to the number of cars waiting in the drive-thru.

That's actually one issue Wolfforth is actively seeking to avoid. In a Facebook post, the city provided some guidance to citizens on how to help avoid traffic congestion when the new Braum's opens its doors.

THE TIME IS HERE! Braum's in Wolfforth opens on Tuesday, June 9! Help us with traffic flow by following these guidelines:
* All traffic entering Braum's will need to come from west 82nd Street
* There will be no left hand turns into the parking lot. The westbound turning land will be closed.
* Wondering how to get headed eastbound on 82nd Street?
Follow the access road of Hwy 62/82 past 82nd Street, turn
right on Loop 193, another right on FM 179, then your last
right on Donald Preston Drive (82nd Street)

We know how excited everyone is to visit! Remember to be patient and expect heavy traffic! Thank you Braum's Ice Cream & Dairy Stores for coming to Wolfforth! We can't wait to visit you!

But that's not the last big Braum's news for Lubbock County this summer. The restaurant chain is opening a third location in Lubbock at 8217 University Avenue sometime in July. And after that, Braum's says it will open another four (!) locations in the surrounding area this year.

Welcome to Wolfforth, Braum's.

Here is Braum's full press release about the opening of their new store in Wolfforth, Texas:

Wolfforth, Texas – Tuesday, June 9th, will be a momentous day for Braum’s and the residents of Wolfforth.  The company is opening its largest store to date.

On the heels of debuting the first Braum’s store in Lubbock, the company is opening a second location just southwest of Lubbock’s city limits at 1111 Donald Preston Drive, Wolfforth, Texas 79382.

The new location is unique when compared to other Braum’s stores. The 16 and a half foot ceilings and the natural light in the dining area are very inviting. The Fresh Market is also the largest that can be found in any Braum’s store, with over 1600 square feet to showcase Braum’s products.

This location is just under 6,500 square feet total with seating inside for about 70 guests. It also features an outdoor covered patio with seating for nearly 40 people. If you don’t want to make a trip inside, you can go through the store’s double drive-thru for a fast and convenient visit.

“When we were first envisioning this location, we wanted something that stood out and allowed us to offer our new customers a beautiful store that provided an exceptional customer experience,” said Drew Braum, President and CEO of the company.

The dates for the ribbon cutting and Grand Opening Celebration Week will be set soon.

A third Braum’s location will open in Lubbock at 8217 University Avenue in July, followed by another four locations in the surrounding area this year.

The newest location in Wolfforth brings the total of Braum’s stores in operation to 284. All stores are located in a five-state area: Oklahoma, Texas, Kansas, Missouri, and Arkansas.
