In 2012 at only 15 the owneR Joshua Rudolph hated working boring jobs like every other high school student, he worked at AMC, and didn't like doing the same thing everyday.


  In the summer of 2012 Joshua purchased the trailer in an ambitious stunt to make money as a sophomore in high school. Nervous but excited he pushed himself beyond his limits to produce a quality product while balancing school, football, friendships, work, and other relationships.

Avalanche Blast opening season was may of 2012. We only did events but soon found a home on Barton Springs road. We strive to make every customer feel at home, and put an emphasis on family. After a few months on Barton Springs we decided to go back to events. We've relied solely on our amazing community and word of mouth to achieve where we are today. After many people asking us to be open every day, we decided to spend 2020 at Graceland grocery in south west Austin!
