With over 20 years experience in the Food and Beverage industry in Austin, Texas, Michael L. Girard, President of Girard Diversified Interests, Inc., has become locally famous for turning start up operations into Texas-sized successes. His beginnings were on Sixth Street but over time Girard was the perfect match for what was about to come - the beginning of the hipper, more upscale Austin Warehouse District, where one goes to “see and be seen” – but blue jeans still apply.
