AUSTIN, Texas — Central Texans have seen many businesses shutting down because of the COVID-19 pandemic. KVUE wants to help "Keep Austin Local" by highlighting small businesses that might need a little help.
On Wednesday, KVUE stopped by The Perfect Bite, a food trailer in South Austin at the Thicket Food Park.
The Perfect Bite had only been in business for two years when the COVID-19 pandemic hit, causing them to close their doors for a few months. They also went down to only one employee – the owner, Jason Goad. They had to change their menu due to a shortage of certain goods, the rising costs of other goods, and their catering program was shut down.

Goad said it has been a slow rebuild, but they are still here and trying to be a positive part of the community. During the February freeze, The Perfect Bite offered free meals to those in need.
The Perfect Bite menu features burgers, sandwiches and very special fried pickles. Some menu items, including the fried pickles and honey and lime chicken sandwich, were inspired by Goad’s mother-in-law.
You can find The Perfect Bite at 7800 S. 1st Street in Austin, or online here.
