Get ready to do some shopping, eating and drinking — at a unique collection of shops and restaurants at the Grove at Wesley Chapel.
As part of a rejuvenation, under the direction of owner Mark Gold, the KRATE at the Grove is throwing a grand opening party.
The open-air entertainment, shopping and restaurant complex has scheduled the daylong festivities for June 4 starting at 10 a.m., and will include live music, family-fun, food, beverages and entertainment, all within the area where mini-shops and restaurants operate out of converted shipping containers.
When KRATE is complete, 94 shipping containers will be turned into 54 individual business units, with a mix of about 70% restaurants and 30% retail.
Situated at the “top” of the KRATE area is a large entertainment venue featuring a stage, and plenty of Adirondack chairs and picnic tables set up for entertainment, and live concerts and music.
Dozens of the shops and restaurants already are open and have been progressively rolling out, since March.
Mishorim Gold Properties purchased the Grove for around $64 million in September 2019 and then invested more than $110 million into the renovation of the property, including setting aside nearly $20 million for KRATE.
Leases start at $1,500 per month, aimed at luring in new entrepreneurs or local businesses to add a storefront. Mishorim Gold Properties likens the KRATE to Sparkman Wharf, located in downtown Tampa, but bigger, and quite possibly the largest container park in the world.
Shops and restaurants already open at KRATE are The Fryroom, Budget Blinds, Brew Bar, Tasty Ramen, MaeBerry Co., Mojo Grill Latin Fusion, The Bacon Boss, TJ’s Hot Dogs, Katie Beth’s Boutique, Shake-A-Salad, Provisions Coffee and Kitchen, The Rebellious Hippie and more.
