    • Business

Episode 50! The only way to celebrate such a big milestone is with an incredible guest. We're excited to bring you Travis Tober of Nickel City and Old Pal. Travis and his partners opened the first Nickel City in Austin in 2017. The Forth Worth location opened its doors during the pandemic in October 2020. Travis then opened Old Pal in Lockhart, TX, just a few months ago.

In our 50th episode, Travis explains the difference between a dive bar and a neighborhood bar, and notes that both Nickel City locations are "anytime bars" that welcome everyone. He also shares his hospitality journey, which saw him go from Buffalo, NY, to Florida, Las Vegas, and ultimately Texas; tips for staying on brand; hiring and retaining team members; how the hospitality industry is the entertainment industry; supporting the community during a crazy winter storm; location scouting; how there's no better time to open a bar or restaurant than right now; and much more.

This is a huge episode and Travis shares a ton of invaluable information! Follow Nickel City Austin, Nickel City Fort Worth, Old Pal, and Travis Tober on Instagram. Connect with host David Klemt on Instagram and be sure to follow the Bar Hacks IG too. Cheers!
