Austin Schlather, owner of Ernie's Patio Bar, was born and raised in Cibolo, Texas. When he was looking for an opportunity to utilize his entrepreneurial spirit, his family's property turned out to be a great option.

The property has been in Austin's family for generations. In the late 1800's, his family owned a grocery store on the property. About 30 years later, the family turned the building into a feather shop that made bows and arrows. Austin's grandfather then turned the property into a feedstore.

Now in 2021, it's a bar! Austin named the bar after his grandfather, Ernie, a former Justice of the Peace in Cibolo. Ernie's favorite drink, a bloody Mary, is a signature drink at his namesake bar. Austin and his team worked hard to create the perfect recipe that would make Ernie proud!

As someone new to building a bar from the ground up, Austin was appreciative of the expertise and support that Mission offers. Mission was able to help Austin design the bar to making sure he was able to stick to his budget to advising on what supplies were essential!

Mission worked out to being a one stop shop for Austin. We are thrilled that we were able partnered with him on Ernie's Patio Bar!
