Made in Austin

Grocery aisle hometown heroes: from espresso to veggie burgers, our favorite locally-made products on the rise.

Primizie Crispbreads

After traveling through Italy, Mark and Lisa Spedale were so inspired by the country’s ‘crisped’ breads that they took matters into their own hands. Enter Primizie Crispbreads: crunchy, thickly-cut specialty chips perfect for everything from topping to dipping. The best topping? According to Primizie there’s “No question: Fresh-made guacamole on the Chile & Lime!”

Yellowbird Sauce

Inspired by a Chinese bird known for its immunity to spicy things, Yellowbird Sauce was created by Austinite George Milton as an all-natural, spicy alternative to Sriracha. Crafted with a mixture of carrots, habanero pepper, tangerines, limes, and garlic, the sweet-spicy sauce can be used on everything from pasta to tacos.

Chameleon Cold-Brew

Co-founded by UT alums Chris Campbell and Steve Williams, each batch of Chameleon Cold-Brew Coffee is brewed for more than 16 hours to create a super-smooth, extra-caffeinated coffee concentrate.


Grandma's Humus

Nikki Turkel Plotkin’s grandmother taught her how to make humus when she was in high school. After settling in Austin, Plotkin started a catering company, but customer demand for her humus became so intense that she created Grandma’s Humus based on her grandmother’s original Turkish recipe. Thanks to popular demand, Plotkin’s humus is now available throughout the Austin area.


Bola Pizza

Austin food bloggers Christian and Jamie Bowers loved making pizza so much that they bought a wood-fired oven, mounted it on a trailer, and started their own company. Bola Pizza, “cooked hot and frozen solid” specializes in handcrafted frozen pies topped with local ingredients from Texas cremini mushrooms to farm-fresh tomatoes. We recommend the “Truffle Daisy”: Tomato sauce and whole milk mozzarella, finished with a luxurious drizzle of truffle oil. Simple indulgence.

The Hot Dang Grain Burgers

Austinite Martha Pincoff was inspired to make a great-tasting vegetarian burger using all whole ingredients, a less-processed frozen burger that was just as convenient as other freezer aisle options. The result, Hot Dang Grain Burgers are soy-free, vegetarian, and made with hand-pressed, fiber-filled, and all-natural grains.
