The East Los Angeles BusinessSource Center provided extensive business consulting, strategic planning and one-on-one assistance to restauranteur Sandra Hernandez, helping to launch her restaurant Casa de las Delicias Chapinas.

The BusinessSource Center helped Sandra establish strong financial planning skills, obtain a retail location that passed County Health Standards, and also obtain necessary licenses and permits.

Located in the Jefferson Park neighborhood, Casa de las Delicias Chapinas, a restaurant specializing in Guatemalan comfort food, opened its doors in June 2019 with five full-time employees.

Casa de las Delicias Chapinas is a 100% Latina-owned Small Business. As demand grows, Sandra hopes to hire an additional three full-time employees in late 2019.
