EVENT: Live Interview with Torchy’s Tacos Founder, Mike Rypka

Austin, TX – VINE Collective, a local branding and marketing experience firm is launching a podcast to explore and showcase leaders who live through their Mission, Vision, and Passion to drive growth, profits, and loyalty.

The MVP mission is to share the strengths and struggles of leaders who have successfully grown their businesses while staying true to their mission, vision, and values so that other entrepreneurs can follow, knowing that the path isn’t easy, but the journey is worth it. Host, Steph Silver has been working with businesses of all sizes for over 30 years and has found that the leaders who understand their own values, and lead with passion and clear direction have greater success over the long haul. These businesses tend to be more profitable, have loyal customers, and dedicated employees and vendors.

As the passion economy takes hold, more and more entrepreneurs are setting off with grand goals to improve the world and empower people. MVP Business Podcast will explore the challenges, pitfalls, and successes of those leaders who succeed on this mission.

This Austin staple and maker of Damn Good Tacos will give us the scoop on getting the business started, and what it takes to move from his 5th street taco truck and Vespa to now having over 60 locations nationwide. With a continued dedication to quality, sustainably sourced ingredients, giving back to the community, and treating his employees with respect and care, Mike is the perfect guest to launch this new series.
