Twin sisters Susan Gruppi and Jessica Miller Essl founded M2G Ventures in 2014, a commercial real estate firm that invests in distinctive, mixed-use and industrial development projects in Fort Worth, TX and beyond. As women in a predominately male-dominated industry, particularly in Texas, they have become key leaders in Fort Worth’s ongoing development as the exclusive retail and restaurant partner for the $500 million revitalization of Mule Alley, the historic horse and mule barns in the Stockyards District. Their work has brought elevated concepts to Mule Alley that retain the neighborhood’s Western charm, including the chic Hotel Drover, an Autograph Collection property; a Lucchese Bootmaker boutique; craft cocktail lounge Sidesaddle Saloon; live music venue Second Rodeo Brewing; and more highly anticipated additions.
