Texas Monthly barbecue editor Daniel Vaughn shared a photo of Franklin Barbecue's smokehouse room plywood. The barbecue restaurant is aiming to reopen the week of November 14, if construction is completed in time.

— Food and beverage brand Nestle bought Austin's coffee company Chameleon Cold-Brew last week. After the purchase, Chameleon will remain based in Austin, and Chris Campbell will continue as CEO.

— Soon people will be able to wash themselves with Salt & Time soap courtesy of Springdale Farms' product line Springdale Handmade. The Salt & Thyme soap is made with Salt & Time lard, Jacobsen Salt Co., and thyme.

— East Cesar Chavez restaurant Juniper is stopped its Sunday brunch service on November 26. Replacing that will be Sunday dinner. It’s part of Juniper’s new menu, which emphasizes sharable plates.

— It’s known that rock band LCD Soundsystem’s James Murphy is a coffee geek, so it makes sense that the frontman would order drinks from Figure 8 Coffee Purveyors during their show last week at Austin360 Amphitheater.
