Following the immense growth of our community over the past year, and with the start of Bridgeland Central, more businesses are attracted to our community. A recent announcement ranked Bridgeland the fifth top-selling master planned community in the nation according to real estate consultants RCLCO. Residents are now living in all four villages, and nearly 20,000 homes will occupy Bridgeland at buildout, providing a sustainable environment for a variety of businesses to make their home here. We are excited to announce the coming of several new offerings for residents that will be opening within the next few months.


It started as a food truck for Waffle Bus owner Phi Nguyen. It was 2010 when he was out of work and decided to follow his dream of opening a restaurant. Starting with a food truck seemed like the best way for the entrepreneur. Why waffles?  Nguyen recognized there were tons of taco trucks and he wanted to create something different. Knowing that chicken and waffles are a staple in the south, he sought to bring that homestyle goodness all around Houston. The best part for Bridgeland residents is that we will soon have our own brick and mortar Waffle Bus location, right here in Lakeland Village Center!

Everybody in the pool! Having fun and being safe are top priorities for Cammile Adams, the former Olympian and owner of SafeSplash Swim School coming soon to Parkland Village. The name may be familiar to some, as she partners with Bridgeland’s HOA and has been bringing her program to our community pools for several years.

She recently purchased land on the corner of Westgreen and Tuckerton, the location where SafeSplash is building its first brick and mortar swim school. Construction is underway with a projected opening before the end of the year.

Adams has been teaching people to swim since 2018. The education major missed being around the water, and one year after graduating from Texas A&M, she left the teaching profession to get back to the sport she loved.

An advocate of a healthy lifestyle, swimming presents a great opportunity to stay in shape. Her bubbles to butterflies curriculum covers all age ranges – from infant to adult. “What sets us apart is that the program is skill based,” says Adams. Many swim programs age out at around age 12. “A swim program shouldn’t have a cap if it can save your life,” Adams emphasized. You can learn more about taking lessons at SafeSplash Swim School and get started on learning a fun way to exercise while also learning about water safety.


Also coming to Parkland Village Center will be Bridgeland’s first Kids ‘R’ Kids Learning Academy. Located at the intersection of 18630 Prairie Refuge Crossing and Westgreen Boulevard, the early learning childhood center offers parents another award-winning educational opportunity for their children.

“Safety, quality education and fun are the cornerstones of Kids ‘R’ Kids,” said Owner EJ Davis. “As a Bridgeland resident, I am invested in the well-being of our community and the education provided to our children. We look forward to bringing Kids R Kids’ personalized approach to education and our low student-to-teacher ratio to Bridgeland.”

At two stories and 25,000 square feet of space, Kids ‘R’ Kids will be a nurturing environment with owner engagement serving children ages six weeks to 12 years old. Offering programs that are described on their website as beyond typical, help to prepare children for future learning. Programing includes: infant, toddler, and preschool childcare programs, pre-K, kindergarten, and before and after school programs, as well as summer camp. Kids ’R’ Kids is projected to open in January 2025.


A second-generation owner of a family-owned business, general manager Farhan Panjwani will bring a Chevron Fuel Center to Bridgeland. The company was started by his dad and uncles, and he’s the next generation helping to manage the business, which is the largest privately owned gas station chain in Houston, operating under the name Star Stop.

Watching how Bridgeland has grown exponentially, and with the announcement of Chevron purchasing a more than 77-acre site in Bridgeland Central, he wanted to become part of the retail that will serve the community.

“We are very excited to see the mass timber building and we like the environmental design of Bridgeland,” said Panjwani. The types of materials and lighting to be used on the fuel center will fit the esthetic that he hopes residents will find pleasing. He’s looking forward to engaging with residents, not only with fuel and food service, but if there is a need to fill, Panjwani is looking to provide it for the community. “We would like to engage with the schools and partner with their fundraising,” he added. Located on Bridgeland Creek Parkway near Starling at Bridgeland, the Chevron Fuel Center anticipates opening before the end of 2024.


Coming soon to Lakeland Village to help keep cars and trucks in tip-top shape will be Jiffy Lube. All service centers are franchise-owned and operated, and the Bridgeland location at 18439 Bridgeland Creek Parkway near Creekside Crossing Drive will be owned and operated by Premium Velocity Auto. Established in 2019, it’s now the second largest Jiffy Lube franchise, with over 360 locations across the United States.

“We are excited about serving the Bridgeland community,” said Bill Seidmeyer, VP of Operations, Premium Velocity Auto.  From oil changes to tire rotation and more, Jiffy Lube in Bridgeland encourages everyone to relax in their brand-new facility, or wait in their vehicle, while a complete and comprehensive inspection of their vehicle is performed. Jiffy Lube will provide customers with all the information needed to keep their vehicle running like new. “We at Jiffy Lube pride ourselves on being fast, thorough, reliable, and a one-stop shop for our customers,” Seidmeyer added.

Jiffy Lube will be ready to serve you by early summer.


Progress continues on Bridgeland’s first H-E-B located in Village Green at Bridgeland Central. Construction is well underway and the opening is slated to take place by the end of 2024.  Also located in Village Green and adjacent to the more than 100,000-square-foot grocery store will be 28,000 square feet of retail and restaurant space along with the region’s first mass timber office building One Bridgeland Green. Located at 20203 Bridgeland Creek Parkway, the mass timber office building as well as the adjacent retail and restaurant space are slated to open in 2025.
