Restaurateurs aren’t the only ones getting in on the opportunity to expand to the Mueller community. Popular ballet barre fitness class, Barre3, opened another Austin location at Mueller in September. The Portland, Ore. based studio has grown into an international franchise with over 100 locations opened since 2008. With classes offered seven days a week, from 5:45 a.m. to 7:15 p.m., there’s plenty of opportunities to try out this studio’s newest location.
21st Street and University Avenue, Austin, TX 78705
Two University of Texas at Austin MBA students, Brian Murphy and Quentin Cantu, are using their business savvy to take on the school’s lack of healthy lunch options. What began as a meal delivery service in spring of 2017 has lead to the opening of a full service food truck this September. The truck (named Ranch Hand, in homage to their locally sourced proteins) serves grain bowls with fresh vegetables, fruits and an array of meats like chicken, Wagyu steak, and even bison. Located by the campus’ Gregory Gymnasium, the truck is providing UT students a fresh start to the school year.
