The Austin Business Journal's Face 2 Face series delivers some of the brightest industry leader to Austin's business community for informative and inspiring discussions. Personal stories, stories from the boardroom and opinions on today's ever-changing business environment are tackled in a fireside chat format with ABJ Editor Colin Pope.

The Face 2 Face breakfasts are usually held the second Tuesday of each month at Whole Foods' world-famous headquarters in downtown Austin. The breakfast starts at 8:30 am with a half hour of networking followed by a one-hour Q&A session with our featured guest. This discussion is fueled by questions from the audience, and most often centers on business-to-business topics that both educate and entertain.



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.

Patrick is married to Kathy, they have two children, Kate and Caroline.
