Well, we visited the Round Rock restaurant a few months ago and had a nice brunch. Thought we would walk around the corner to the retail store to 'cash in' our Groupon...OOPS, even though the 'Welcome' sign with the hours listed showed the store to be open on Sunday, it was indeed closed. We saw a letter explaining the situation posted in the window...BUT, the lighted sign still had Sunday hours. Fast forward a few months and I stopped by finally(not an area I frequent) to make my retail purchase and the store was now permanently CLOSED...Dang! Got a credit from Groupon so all is good; but I was a bit disappointed that they closed up shop :(

Q&A with Christopher Swenson, Owner

What sets your business apart from your competition?
We are the only establishment in the area offering grass fed, grass finished all natural beef directly from a historic family ranch. We raise the cattle on natural pastureland and they are never given hormones, antibiotics or grain so that the beef is the healthiest you can get anywhere. We supply this beef through our restaurant, Svante’s, an award winning food truck (Best Burger in Austin, 2014, 2015) and through our retail store and farmers markets.

What was the inspiration for starting this business?
The family ranch was founded by Svante M Swenson, my great great grandfather, the first Swedish immigrant in Texas who played a major role in the early days of Austin. His cabon is still enshrined at Zilker Botantical Gardens. Ranching operations began in 1882. In many ways the beef was healthier and more flavorful in those early days then in later years when almost all beef in Texas (and the US) began going to feed lots where cattle were gorged with grain, an unnataural food for them, dosed with growth hormones and antibiotics. My sons began the current as a foodtruck in downtown Austin and have expanded into catering, a full service restaurant and the retail store and farmers markets. We are still a family owned and operated business.

What is the best reaction you’ve ever gotten from a customer?
Most customers tell us it’s the best beef they have ever had. We hear that almost every week at the farmers market, and in the retail store.

What’s your favorite part about your job?
Talking to customers about the history of the ranch and the beef and what makes it healthier than most other beef (much higher in Omega 3’s, CLA’s, has less calories, etc.)

Is there anything else you want to add that we didn’t cover?
The retail store is attached to our restaurant kitchen. Our chefs are often available to help with cooking tips and recipes.
