about this business

Central Howe has a new home-style cooking restaurant by way of Central America. Lillian Avila learned English at age 13 by studying two hours a day, five days a week for three years. She was born in Honduras and arrived in McKinney, Texas in 1986 and attended schools at McKinney ISD.  After school, she wasn’t immediately an entrepreneur. She worked at several fast food locations and even cleaned houses.  However in 2005, Avila became an employer, instead of an employee.  She opened up her first restaurant in Pilot Point, The Steak House. The restaurant eventually outgrew the original 10 tables and moved into the Pilot Point shopping center.  Looking to move from the Pilot Point area, she was targeting Howe back in 2012. She bought some equipment from the catfish restaurant in Howe when it closed but missed the opportunity to lease the location. At that time, the restaurant Wyoming’s had been thriving in downtown Howe before closing (due to a desire for the owner to move to New York) and it also was taken by a BBQ owner before she could secure that lease.  She looked at another location across Haning Street downtown, but it didn’t work out. So she settled on Tioga in the historic part of town and opened up her new restaurant named Abby’s (which was named after Avila’s youngest sister). As time passed and Abby’s grew, the building that housed the restaurant was failing and she felt it was time to relocate. The experienced restaurateur didn’t want to miss the opportunity to lease the Howe location again. So when the barbecue restaurant closed, she knew she had to secure the lease.  “It was not the right time before, but it’s the right time now.”
