WE LOVE LOCAL BIZ
Maybe it's not as much of a surprise given how big our city is, but did you know several of San Antonio's local businesses are run by University of Texas at Austin grads? Now, five of Alamo City's fastest growing, Longhorn-run businesses are receiving the recognition they deserve by their alma mater.
UT Austin's alumni association, the Texas Exes, celebrated 100 nationwide companies who were founded, owned, or led by Longhorns over the past five years with the inaugural Longhorn 100 Gala on May 18. Award recipients must have held a minimum annual revenue of $250,000 since 2019 to qualify, in addition to their Longhorn status.
The San Antonio winners include popular restaurants, clinics, a construction and architecture firm, a community organization, and more:
- Stagg Restaurants Dba McDonald's
- San Antonio Cosmetic Surgery, PA
- BIRD Bakery
- OfficeSource, Ltd
- Day 1 Bags (Boerne)
Elsewhere around the state, Austin-area businesses (of course) took home the most awards, totaling 43. Hill Country Dental Associates in Kerrville and McAllen's Castle Hospitality also took home Longhorn 100 Awards. In Houston, 13 businesses were also celebrated.
