The Peached Tortilla: Modern Asian Comfort Food from Tokyo to Texas

For the reader’s unfamiliar with The Peached Tortilla and founder Eric Silverstein here’s a quick recap. Eric left a promising career as a lawyer to start The Peached Tortilla in 2010 with a rented food truck. Fast forward nearly a decade and the brand has grown from a single mobile food unit to one of the most recognized food brands in Austin.

While developing recipes, taking food photos, and writing content for a book like is an enormous undertaking by itself, even more impressive is that Eric wrote the book while continuing to manage his multi-restaurant and food truck business. An impressive feat in time management!

Although Eric’s progression seems swift from afar, he’s the first to tell you The Peached Tortilla is not an overnight success story. Success was anything but guaranteed at numerous stages of the business.

There’s a little something for everyone in today’s episode of Food Empire Pro. Eric digs into the process he took to create the new cookbook, how to manage a growing family while running a business. Click play for the full interview.
