I confirmed this news with the folks at the Irvine The Counter store. According to the gent I spoke with, they are still working out the details, dealing with permits, etc.; but this one, like the one in Irvine, will be owned and operated by the same folks (Felix and Liam) that have made the Irvine burger shop a hit.
