Comal Heritage Food Incubator Joins The Underdog Family!

Beyond excited to announce the launch of!

Founded by Focus Points Family Resource Center in October 2016, Comal was formed in direct response to the community-identified need for economic opportunity in the face of gentrification. Since this purposeful restaurant opened its doors, the training program has served 24 participants and helped launch 4 businesses.

The economic development aspect of Comal is an “earn while you learn” model. This follows the philosophy of a family resource center to support families in achieving financial sustainability. While participants are learning on the job they are also earning a stipend to support their training efforts. The stipend is positioned as economic support to participants who might not otherwise be able to invest this time into training and developing their business. Beyond the incredible mission, the food is downright delicious. Go visit them today in the Taxi by Zeppelin Business Park and enjoy their beautiful outdoor seating area. You'll thank us later!
