Greetings Double Oak Neighbors,
Merry Christmas and Happy New Year from your Double Oak Town Council and staff.
Braum’s Ice Cream & Dairy Store
After beginning discussions with Braum’s nearly three years ago, the Double Oak Planning and Zoning Commission and Town Council approved the site plan for Braum’s at their November meetings. The restaurant will be located on FM 407 between Preferred Self Storage and Rapid Med. Site construction has already begun, with a grand opening expected in summer 2022. Double Oak is looking forward to welcoming Braum’s to our town!
