Silver Ventures invests in middle market food companies and is interested in investing throughout the food industry. According to published reports, the firm has been involved in San Antonio real estate projects including the Pearl Brewery project and two high-end hotels developed with Hixon Properties Inc., the Westin Riverwalk and the Hotel Contessa.
