P. Terry’s Brings 55 Jobs with the Opening of 18th Burger Stand at Tech Ridge Center
(AUSTIN, TEXAS - April 20, 2020) P. Terry’s Burger Stand announced today the opening of its Tech Ridge location on Monday, April 20, 2020. The new Tech Ridge Center location is a drive-thru only location and will be open from 9 AM - 11 PM daily. The 18th location will feature P. Terry’s unique Googie architecture, a large triangle-shaped canopy, double drive-thru lanes and walk-up window.
P. Terry’s has been proudly serving all-natural burgers, fries, shakes and breakfast since 2005, with 17 locations in Austin and one in San Marcos. Despite operating limitations imposed by the current pandemic, P. Terry's will open its Tech Ridge location on the heels of its recent Georgetown opening, with plans to open its UT-Austin location off MLK and Guadalupe in May.
“These are challenging times for our existing locations, much less opening new locations,” said P. Terry’s CEO Todd Coerver. “But we feel a sense of obligation to press on. In a time when restaurants are tragically closing at an unprecedented clip, we want to do our small part to offer displaced workers employment while continuing to offer new neighborhoods a high-quality, affordable meal.”
With three openings in as many months during this unprecedented time, P. Terry’s is adding approximately 200 new jobs to the Austin area.
“These openings not only bring an additional food option to new neighborhoods,” offered P. Terry’s co- founder Patrick Terry. “They bring hope and optimism to our employees and our supply partners that we are doing everything in our power to not only keep people employed but offer opportunity to those needing a job during this very difficult time.”
