El Norteno 2 has opened at 723 W. U.S. 80 in White Oak, next to the boundary of Clarksville City.
It is owned and operated by Guillermo Garnica, owner of El Norteno Mexican Restaurant in Tyler.
El Norteno serves traditional dishes that include tacos, burritos and enchiladas, and its specialty is seafood (“marisco” in Spanish), said manager Jose Garnica, Guillermo’s nephew.
“We just wanted to bring something new to White Oak,” he said. “You can barely find anything like that around here.”
Seafood items include shrimp, oysters, octupus, soups and shrimp cocktails.
Garnica said customers may bring their own wine, beer or mixed drinks while the restaurant awaits a liquor license.
El Norteno 2 seats as many as 100 people and is open from 10 a.m. to 10 p.m. daily.
Distribution center opens
Love & Associates has opened a distribution center selling paint products in an industrial building at 3922 W. Loop 281, Suite A.
“We are up and running now,” founder Don Love said Thursday. Love said he is getting the name out by contacting potential customers in Texas, Arkansas and beyond.
Love, who has worked in the manufacturing industry in for 15 years, said he has hired three employees and plans to hire more as the distribution center adds products.
He said the company will sell coating products from Davis-Frost Inc. and other manufacturers, and provide national distribution to customers such as heavy-industrial manufacturers.
Love began to set up shop in February, adding it took some time to obtain permits from the city of Longview.
Davis-Frost is leasing 15,000 square feet in a 60,000-square-foot building from Scott Zhorne, a developer and property manager who owns Premiere Management. Blind H Trucking formerly occupied the building.

PhyNet, the Longview-based, nonprofit primary care health system, is integrating physical therapy services throughout its network.
With that goal in mind, PhyNet hired Tom Lorren, a physical therapist in the Longview area for more than 20 years, the company said. PhyNet began providing physical therapy at the Jefferson and Linden clinics during the spring, and both clinics have planned renovations.
“Integrating physical therapy at our PhyNet clinics will enhance our ancillary services and extend our chronic care management and prevention programs in a dynamic way,” John Ford, PhyNet CEO and founder, said in a statement.
PhyNet physical therapy also makes house calls, providing home health patients with orthopedic and rehabilitation services.
PhyNet clinics in Longview and Gladewater will begin providing physical therapy and rehab services in late 2018.
Eating psychology coach
Lisa Mull said she has changed the name of her business from Au Naturale Health and Wellness By Design to Mind-Body Health by Lisa to put more emphasis on emotional well-being.
“It’s more toward the mind-body-eating psychology,” Mull said. “Before, it was more natural health in general.
Mull, who became a registered nurse in 1997, said she has learned over the past 14 years that the emotional aspect of health is vital to a person’s overall health.
She said she meets one on one with clients and in group sessions and conducts corporate health programs.
Mull said she has maintained an office for four years at 102 Commander Drive, Suite 6, off Judson Road behind Subway. She accepts business by appointments.
