P. Terry’s Burger Stand to Open First University of Texas Location
Austin, TX (December 20, 2019) - P. Terry’s Burger Stand announced today that it will open its first University of Texas location in Spring 2020 in Terry Enterprises’ former Taco Ranch location at 517 W Martin Luther King Jr Blvd. The central Austin Taco Ranch will close this afternoon and will be remodeled into the iconic burger stand starting next week. The first University of Texas P. Terry’s will feature patio and dine-in seating along with two drive-thru lanes.
“As much as we love Taco Ranch, as a company with all eyes on expanding P. Terry’s, it just made sense to have a presence at the University of Texas,” said P. Terry’s and Taco Ranch co-founder Patrick Terry.
Taco Ranch employees have been offered the opportunity to continue their employment with Terry Enterprises at Taco Ranch’s first location, or at another P. Terry’s location.
“We are excited to give the UT campus and its neighboring businesses a P. Terry’s of their own. Our anticipated spring opening is one of several new locations slated for 2020 as we continue our expansion in Austin and beyond,” stated P. Terry’s CEO, Todd Coerver.
Terry Enterprises appreciates the many loyal fans of Taco Ranch and looks forward to serving them at the original Taco Ranch location at 5033 West US Highway 290 Service Road, which will remain open.
