PFLUGERVILLE, Texas, February 7, 2023 (Newswire.com) - Willie's Grill & Icehouse officially opened its doors in Pflugerville, Texas, on Friday, Jan. 20. In a big-hearted move that underscores the definitively Texas brand's commitment to its communities, Willie's Pflugerville turned days one and two of its soft opening into two local fundraisers: On Jan. 20, proceeds went to the Pflugerville Police Department's nonprofit organization L.E.A.P., and on Jan. 21, cash raised went to Pflugerville Independent School District. Both organizations received checks for $1,500 each.
The highly anticipated Pflugerville outpost is the 19th in the state for the Texas-based, Texas-grown Willie's, as well as the seventh location to feature an expansive full bar. The addition underscores Willie's reign as the region's top family-friendly haven, where a renowned scratch Texas kitchen and casual icehouse vibes offer wholesome fun for parents and kids.
At the Willie's Pflugerville ribbon-cutting ceremony, led by the Pflugerville Chamber of Commerce on Friday, January 20, local leaders, including members of the Pflugerville Chamber as well as uniformed and off-duty police officers, joined the celebration to accept the donations for their respective organizations. Willie's community outreach assumes a variety of forms. In addition to ongoing philanthropic efforts, Willie's presence in Pflugerville has also created more than 100 quality, local jobs. A job at Willie's has a bright future: Willie's actively promotes and hires from within, believing every position has the potential for long-term career growth.
