Meet Brooks Veazey, General Manager, Austin, Texas
We are excited about our newest location coming to Austin, Texas! We’ve been vending in Austin for a little over a year and have grown to love the city and the community of Austin.
With the new store slated to open this month, we thought you might like to meet Brooks Veazey, our General Manager. We think you’ll love Brooks and his wife Mary Ann. Fun fact… Mary Ann is our “in house artist” who creates many of our store murals including the new location in Austin. We hope you’ll stop by and meet them!
