Ask the Editor: How do you select local businesses and restaurants to feature?


Part of our mission at Community Impact Newspaper is to help local businesses thrive, and one of the ways we work toward that goal is by profiling one local restaurant and one local small business in every monthly edition.

These profiles paint the picture of Central Austin’s local business community by highlighting business owners, restaurateurs and chefs, each of whom has a different story to tell about their inspiration.

We find our subjects by getting out in the community, listening to our neighbors and our readers, and always looking out for new local spots we can add to our list of possible features. We do not accept payment for the stories, and we require that businesses be locally owned, in operation for at least one year, and have brick-and-mortar locations.  What are your local haunts that you think we should feature? Whether it’s an under-the-radar restaurant or a quirky shop, we are always open to suggestions.
