The Colony Economic Development Corporation (EDC) is happy to partner with local businesses. The EDC recently partnered with Zag Afro Fusion Cuisine with a Business Improvement Grant (BIG) for signage. We have grants for signage, facade and landscaping. The goal is to help drive traffic to our businesses, improve the exterior of a business and improve their ability to be successful.

The EDC created the Business Improvement Grant program almost 3 years ago to assist our local investors. Zag will be located in the shopping center at 5000 Main. Below is a quote from the owner of Zag, Bimpe Odewumi.

"Zag Afro Fusion Cuisine, is a restaurant located in The Colony, TX. We focus on African cuisines with an edge of western touch. At Zag we use the finest, freshest ingredients that are locally sourced to ultimately provide every customer a custom and lasting experience with the highest quality ingredients.
We strive to create new innovative cuisines by reinventing African food classics and blending with western and other world cuisines giving you a combination of a tasty and lasting experience.
Zag redefines the blend between two worlds; traditional and contemporary and connecting them to produce an afro fusion."
