— Texas-Hispanic supermarket chain Fiesta Mart is being bought by California-based chain El Super. The sale went for $300 million. There are two Austin locations both off I-35, the first up in Cherrywood and the other down south in the East Congress neighborhood.

— East 7th Street cafe Vintage Heart Coffee now has a new name: Revival Coffee. It’s essentially the same coffee shop, except with new graffiti artwork. It reopened over the weekend with a new charitable goal: people can vote for one of three charities and nonprofits, and whichever has the most votes will receive ten percent of Revival’s profits from the quarter. First up are Austin Pets Alive, Explore Austin, and Casa Marianella.

— Austin Java’s Dripping Springs location (which is now open) will include a brewery and taproom, Distant State Beer Co., as well as a coffee roasting facility for the coffee shop and wine lounge.

— Juliet Italian Kitchen chef Jacob Weaver won the Austin edition of the Lamb Jam on Sunday, March 25. He’ll go on to compete in the final round later this year.
