Patrick Terry along with his wife, Kathy founded P. Terry's Burger Stand in July of 2005 at the corner of Lamar and Barton Springs in Austin, TX. As the first restaurant in Austin to offer all-natural beef and chicken along with fresh cut french fries, P. Terry's quickly established itself as an alternative to regular fast food fare. Today there are nine P. Terry's locations with four more planned in 2015, all in the Austin area.
A graduate of the University of Texas at Austin, Patrick began his career in advertising at Tracy-Locke/BBDO in Dallas where he worked on the accounts of Philips Petroleum, Ben Hogan Golf and Frito-Lay. Patrick came back to Austin in 1985 as the Director of the Texas Sesquicentennial Commission where he oversaw Texas' 150th birthday in 1986. Before opening P. Terry's he created Rizano's Italian restaurant with two locations which he sold in 1993.
