Over the last few months, Austin area businesses have faced many challenges. While everyday brings something new and solutions are still developing, we see businesses meeting challenges with a fierce determination to succeed.

This year, the 2020 FAVE Awards will highlight and celebrate the many businesses in our city who are committed to supporting their customers, employees, and our community through resiliency, adaptability, and innovation.

Featuring Keynote Kathy Terry speaking about business, leadership, and change in 2020.

A fierce female and serial entrepreneur, Kathy Terry has been making waves since starting her first business over 20 years ago. She is the co-founder of P. Terry’s Burger Stand with her husband Patrick and the founder of InLieu: the first social giving app where users can make donations and share a personal message with a friend, anytime, anywhere.

About Kathy Terry

A fierce female and serial entrepreneur, Kathy Terry has been making waves since starting her first business over 20 years ago. In 2005 she co-founded P. Terry’s Burger Stand in Austin with her husband Patrick and quickly established its presence as a socially and health-conscious fast food alternative. With nineteen P. Terry’s locations and counting (and a hot new fast casual Mexican offering called Taco Ranch) there’s no denying that Kathy Terry has helped change the way Austinites do “fast casual.”

Kathy and Patrick have a heart for philanthropy and giving back has always been a core principle of the Terry’s business model. Through their stewardship, the restaurant chain has donated over $1MM to date, all benefiting local nonprofits. But Kathy didn’t stop there – in 2018 she launched an all-new mobile app called inLieu: the first social giving app where users can make donations and share a personal message with a friend, anytime, anywhere.

Kathy’s mission to change the way we think about giving is a reflection of a lifetime of charitable giving and service. Her goal is simple–to make it easier for people to make the world a better place.

Kathy and Patrick live in Austin Texas with their two children, Kate and Caroline.
