The Buyer, Aaron Lyons, owner of Dish Society, a casual farm-to-table restaurant that offers a local ingredient-driven and chef-inspired menu, primarily purchased the restaurant for its location and demographics. Lyons developed the concept for Dish Society while earning his MBA at The University of Texas at Austin. Though he initially planned to open the first location in Austin, Lyons ultimately found a much greater demand and opportunity for his concept in Houston, with the acquisition of this restaurant.

Tom Pence listed and sold the business.
