  • Jay Pearce

    Owner –

    Born and raised in Austin, I have witnessed a lot of change in the city. Starting the Ranch with my father back in 1986 has proven to be a great life. I focus my attention not only on the total operations here at the Ranch, but also coordinate all Charity Events, Church Groups and Public Events. With over 1,000,000 guests here at the Ranch in the past 31 years, you could say that I party for a living and I wouldn’t change it. Hosting over 5,100 people at one time, we have become really skilled at entertaining large crowds – just ask anyone who has visited!

    My wife and I live here on the Ranch, which makes for a nice commute to work. Give me a call – I’m always happy to help.

He is extremely blessed to be able to return to a true country-based lifestyle. He is an avid connoisseur of smoking meats and is an aspiring pit master, who claims his blood type equals a Bourbon BBQ sauce. One of his favorite quotes is from Chef Massimo Bottura, “Not everyone can be a Truffle. Most of us are Potatoes, and a Potato is a very good thing to be.”
