Paul Bambrey, Jalapeno Tree CEO: “We will be there in the Spring.”

I had a phone conversation with Paul Bambrey this morning. Mr. Bambrey is the CEO of Jalapeno Tree. He seems every bit as excited about coming to Mineola as Mineola is excited about his restaurant coming to town.

Jalapeno Tree Restaurant IS COMING TO MINEOLA

Jalapeno Tree will occupy the white building, formerly Safeway, on East Broad Street. While they do not have a target opening date at this time, Mr. Bambrey said, “We are coming to Mineola. We will be there in the Spring.”

They are finalizing contracts and details of the initial property transaction and Mr. Bambrey is securing extra parking behind the car lot adjacent to the location of the restaurant. He said that all parties are in agreement in principle and the details should be worked out within a week or so.

Jalapeno Tree will create some 50-60 jobs in Mineola. These jobs will range from kitchen help to management of the restaurant. Jobs will be posted and interviews will commence when the restaurant is about 30-45 days from opening. Stay tuned to Mineola Buzz. We will let you know as soon as they start the interview/hiring process.

At this time, Jalapeno Tree operates some 15 restaurants in other Texas towns from Carthage to Sherman to McKinney to Wichita Falls.

Some have asked me whether they would level the existing building or build around it. I too was curious about this. Mr. Bambrey stated that they are going to build around the existing building at the location.

This is growth for Mineola. More sales tax dollars. More jobs. More places to eat. This is all good and Mineola welcomes Jalapeno Tree!!
