We Love our neighbors!


Several years ago a group of friends and would-be-entrepreneurs were on the hunt for a place to start a coffee shop. We looked all over the city of Fort Worth and in the process we met the amazing, innovative people from Near Southside, Inc. We were sold on the urban development happening on Magnolia Avenue and we agreed to give it a go. Saying yes to Magnolia Avenue was a great decision. We have benefited immensely from the collaborative and creative Near Southside community and our coffee shop-turned-restaurant, Brewed, will celebrate it’s fifth anniversary October 2017. Since that time the folks at Near Southside, Inc. have been working diligently to develop Fort Worth’s South Main Street. South Main, once a thriving business area went through a season of slumber. Now it is enjoying a renaissance of sorts. When 411 South Main became available, we jumped at the chance to participate in the revival of this part of town. We are thoroughly looking forward to South Main becoming the destination for Fort Worth’s creative scene.


Vandervoort’s Ice Cream plant is an icon of South Fort Worth that has stood on South Main for decades.

The plant now produces the ice cream for Kroger’s private label and ships all over the country.
