I'm working on an article for an upcoming issue of Austin Woman Magazine and would like to include a little bit about women owned vegan restaurants (or anything else vegan related).  

I have a few places in mind, but don't want to limit the list.  So if anyone could help and let me know of some women owned vegan/vegetarian businesses in Austin I'd really appreciate it!  

Thanks!

Sue at Counter Culture, Kristen at Cap City, Amelia at Sweet Ritual, The Hearty Vegan is mother/daughter, I'm pretty sure the owner of Unity is female, and I think Food for Lovers and Rabbit Food are co-owned by women.

I'm not the best source, so I'd just contact all the vegan businesses in town.  I would guess that the vast majority have female ownership.

Also Beets, Happy Vegan Baker, Red Rabbit Doughnuts (at least initially), possibly Skull & Cakebones.

Celeste's Best, Bouldin Creek, Kala's Kuisine

There's also an Austin Vegan Chamber of Commerce, which most of these businesses participate in. And I believe the idea was conceived by women.

If you're expanding into non-restaurants, there are many many more businesses. Off of the top of my head, there's also Celeste's Best, which has been in Austin for over a decade. One of the partners at Sugar Circus is vegan, but the entire store is women owned. I think that the owner of Everyday Minerals is a woman as well.  

ETA: I guess Molly and I posted at the same time happy

Yep, the owner of Everyday Minerals is indeed  a woman, though she is not personally vegan if that matters. I work there, so if you need any info about it let me know. happy
