Blue Goose Cantina in Plano boasts familial environment



PLANO, TX – Many residents of the Dallas Fort-Worth metroplex are familiar with Blue Goose Cantina because of its quick service, strong margaritas and Tex-Mex food, which is made with fresh ingredients, according to managers.

What many residents do not know is that Blue Goose is family-owned and -operated.

The business was started by friends Bob Peterson and Scott Holyfield, who opened the first location on Lower Greenville Avenue in Dallas in 1984. Both have since died, but Peterson’s wife, Jill, and son, Nick, now run the business.

While Blue Goose has grown significantly since it opened in the ‘80s, Plano General Manager Lacy Schara said it has managed to maintain a family-style, small-business feel.

The restaurant aimed to be a late-night spot when it first opened, but as it enters its 37th year, it has expanded into the suburbs and changed its hours so employees can get home well before its original 2 a.m. closing time.
