If you’re wondering how a burger drive-through earned a spot in our Hall of Fame, you haven’t earned your Austin stripes. Everyone recognizes the infamous Golden Arches, but thanks to Patrick and Kathy Terry, alongside architecture guru Michael Hsu, the futuristic aesthetic of this Central Texas mega-chain – more than 21 locations and counting – is also recognizable from the highway … but for way better food and business practices.
We Asked 16 Business Owners and Economists About Bumping the Minimum Wage to $15. Here's What They Said
A lot of our employees got $5,000 more a year because of our wage increase. It changed their lives. There is no doubt that this is better for our business. The quality of employees coming in rose. Our sales are increasing as a result. Our product comes out better. And I get to sleep better at night.
Making voting easier is part of P-Terry’s culture, Coerver said, adding that during the November election, restaurants organized ride-sharing so the company’s more than 900 mostly minority employees could get to the ballot box. And they could use company time to vote.
In a separate effort, at least 50 businesses, including HP Inc., Patagonia, American Airlines and P. Terry’s, formed a coalition known as Fair Elections Texas to speak out against voting restrictions in general in the state, according to Nathan Ryan, CEO of the Austin-based consulting firm Blue Sky Partners, which has signed onto the letter.
