The East Cesar Chavez District, between I-35 and Pleasant Valley, is home to a diverse business community including Hispanic cuisine and many other restaurants and food trucks, art galleries, piñata shops, hair salons, boutique shops, fitness studios, community and religious services, and many more.
East Cesar Chavez businesses joined the Souly program to improve the experience in the district and attract more patrons. Businesses, along with Souly Austin and additional partners, have been able to identify the opportunities and challenges of their district with the hopes of creating a collective vision that will position them to further formalize their district merchants association that advocates for the district. The district has a solid leadership team that is working through the formalization of the merchants association.
If you are a business owner in the East Cesar Chavez District and you are interested in joining the efforts contact Nicole Klepadlo, Souly Austin Project Manager, at Nicole.Klepadlo@austintexas.gov.
