“We’re incredibly excited to be growing and sparkling with a second location in Texas,” said Swig Founder Nicole Tanner. “At Swig, we pride ourselves on our one-of-a-kind drinks, delicious treats and friendly service, so it’s amazing to see the shop become a staple in various communities because of the continuing effort of our staff and the service they provide each guest.”

On opening weekend, guests will be able to enjoy free drinks from 10 a.m. to 7 p.m. Guests can mix and match their favorite fountain drink with a wide combination of flavors, creams, purees and fresh fruits. The popular drink concept will also offer Refreshers, Revivers – Swig’s proprietary energy drink – boba teas, sweet teas, hot chocolate and treats like a variety of cookies and pretzel bites with different dipping options to satisfy everyone’s sweet and savory cravings.
