Yeti Coolers Chooses Austin Texas To Open First Retail Store
The location was most recently a furniture store, which closed in 2009. Austin-based Cielo Property Group purchased the site in 2015 and invested at least $2 million on a facelift with Gensler as the architect.
Once Yeti got involved, it recruited Lake/Flato Architects while branding agency McGarrah Jessee led the concept design for the new space with input from retail design firm Lauckgroup.
The store is part of the city's South Central Waterfront project, which aims to guide the redevelopment of a few of blocks on the south shore of Lady Bird Lake in order to create a lively, walkable district. An advisory board was recently created to oversee the process.
Elsewhere in Austin, Yeti's corporate headquarters is being built off Southwest Parkway. The company has leased all 175,000 square feet of the Lantana Ridge project by Lincoln Property Co.
Parent company Yeti Holdings Inc. filed in July 2016 for an IPO. However, those plans are apparently on hold — the company is reportedly seeking more private funding before it heads to the public markets.

Hey everyone, I checked out the new Yeti Store, and the location is superb! It's right by the spinning Bat Sculpture across from the Austin American Statesman. I found a great parking spot at the Austin American Statesman, $6 for 4 hrs. I had lunch at Threadgill's, which is a block down the road and then I hung out at Yeti. The open air bar and TV area couldn't be better and I got to check out all the new Yeti merchandise. After my delicious lunch at Threadgill's and relaxing conversations at Yeti, I crossed Congress and went down to the trail/boardwalk for a stroll. Like I said, great location!
