What makes Texas great is our pride. That translates into loving our land, loving our people, and loving our products. It means living as locally as possible and supporting small businesses that are Texas born and bred.
There’s never been a more important time to support our Texan community spirit. Some of the hardest hit by this pandemic are independent restaurants that defined what Texan cuisine is and brought it to national attention. Our support of these businesses allows them to take care of their employees and refrain from shutting their doors.
We’ve rounded up some of our favorite restaurants in Texas that continue to make delicious food, and now allow us these comforts from our couches! These are our partners who we proudly sell our Texas Olive Oil to – because eating Texan is rooted in buying Texan through support of local farms and purveyors. Like us at Texas Olive Ranch, they are all following CDC and local government recommendations on top of the meticulous standards of the food service industry while trying to keep staff employed and safe.
We implore you to support them during this difficult time by ordering takeout or delivery. If possible, order directly from the restaurants rather than through third-party apps which may take a high percentage.

Make Restaurant-Worthy Dishes At Home
You can still support local businesses when you’re not eating out. With restaurants closed and doing less businesses, a lot of farms, local purveyors, and food manufacturers are also struggling to keep their ships afloat. Texas Olive Ranch is still open, operating with increased safety measures, of course, in order to keep our employees and customers safe. Ordering our delicious olive oil is a great way to support the Texas economy while keeping busy at home by trying out new recipes. We’re offering customers fast, free, priority shipping on all orders over $49. Just enter coupon code FREESHIP at checkout or in your cart.
