The chef and owner of Clarksville restaurant Cafe Josie are teaming up for Industry, a new counter-service restaurant in San Marcos. Located at 110 East Martin Luther King Drive, in The Square and adjacent to the new Hops & Grain brewery, Industry is meant to be “a constant celebration of life in the service industry,” according to a release. It’s slated to open this summer.
Industry will be open for lunch, dinner, late-night service, and eventually brunch. Cafe Josie chef Todd Havers, who is also involved with the new San Marcos restaurant, said in a press release the menu is centered around a smoker that makes use of Texas live oak, but is “decidedly healthy,” adding that “everything that can be smoked, will be.” The restaurant’s Instagram touts burgers, sandwiches, salads, and fried squash rings.
Seating is mostly communal. Though the restaurant is counter-service, there will also be servers to take additional orders. Industry also promises a discount of ten percent for those in the service industry.
Industry is a collaboration between Cafe Josie owner Cody Taylor, Havers, and restaurant consultant Harlan Scott. Cafe Josie opened in Clarksville in 1997 and Taylor bought the restaurant in 2013, adding the popular option of The Experience, which offers unlimited small plates.
