According to Grand Rapids Business Journal, an official grand opening is slated for February. Tia Juana owner Sandy Polanco tells GRBJ,

Even though they say restaurants are a tough business, I think Knapp’s Crossing needed a real taco place. So, we wanted to put an authentic taco place in town, and this was the best place for it.
