🌱 Tornado Totaled Local Food Truck + Delayed Hoots Wings Opening

Hello again, Round Rock! Important Update: All of you as readers have made Round Rock Daily such a success that I am honored to announce the next phase of the newsletter. The fix is looking for a local writer and entrepreneur to lead the Round Rock Daily. While I enjoyed getting to know this community, we want to pass the torch to someone truly local to write about Round Rock for the long term. So if you want to earn extra income while making this newsletter a more valuable resource for your neighbors, learn more and apply here.


First, today’s weather forecast:

Becoming sunny and less humid. High: 78 Low: 55.


Here are the top three stories from Round Rock today:

  1. In the tornado a few weeks ago, Round Rock residents Scott and Sally Amburgey’s food truck was destroyed. Ambur Fire, their food truck business, had to close for about two weeks due to tornado damage. Someone lent Scott and Sally a trailer to continue their business while waiting for their new trailer. The insurance only covered part of the trailer, so Scott and Sally are working to recoup their losses. The community has shown love and support, and their business is doing well despite the circumstances. (KVIEW)
  2. The opening of Hoots Wings, at 2200 E. Palm Valley Boulevard Suite 125 in Round Rock, has been delayed. The Hooters spin-off franchise has yet to announce a new opening date. The fast-casual restaurant will offer take-out, an outdoor terrace and delivery. (Community Impact Newspaper)
