Chief Friend, The Friendly Spot
in San Antonio
Jody Bailey Newman is the food entrepreneur and Chief Friend behind The Friendly Spot Ice House, Alamo Street Eat Bar food truck park, and B&D Ice House. And, she just added the iconic Hills & Dales Ice House to her “friendly family.” Jody often mentors future small business owners and female business owners through Café Commerce, and as an SA2020 Ambassador. As Fiesta Cornyation’s first-ever Queen Anchovy I, she raised a record-breaking amount for San Antonio’s AIDS-related charities. When she’s not at one of her own restaurants, you can find her in one of her many favorite downtown hangouts. She’s the one drinking the glass of Pinot Noir.
