The California-based Crack Shack offers SoCal-inspired fried chicken, sandwiches and bowls.

The Rim Mall in northwest San Antonio will soon be home to two new fast-casual dining concepts. Via 313 Pizzeria and fried chicken concept The Crack Shack both have signed leases there, the San Antonio Business Journal reports.

According to documents filed with the Texas Department of Licensing and Regulation, construction of new locations at Via 313 in Austin and Crack Shack in San Diego will begin next month, the newspaper reports.

Both 2,500 square foot projects are located at 17315 West Interstate 10, and both list construction costs of around $500,000, according to the TDLR filing.

Via 313 started in 2011 as Austin’s only food truck that offered thick and thin crust pizzas. It has since expanded to eight locations, including five in Austin, one in Cedar Park and two in Utah.

In January, the Express-News reported that Via 313 would open its first SA location in the city’s Medical Center area by the end of March. However, this location is not yet complete.

The Crack Shack offers fried chicken, SoCal-inspired sandwiches and bowls, as well as sweets and savory sides.

Other fried yardbird concepts that have recently announced San Antonio expansions include North Carolina-based Bojangles, Buffalo Wild Wings’ GO concept, and Las Vegas-based Big Chicken owned by NBA legend Shaquille O’ Neal.

The Crack Shack did not respond to the business diary‘s requests for details on the inauguration of the Rim location. However, a representative for Via 313 told the newspaper that it aims to open soon after construction is finished in December.
