Jesus Resendiz, owner of Tony's Bros
Before his passing in 2015, Jesus Resendiz’s father offered bartending and waiter services to private parties for years as a way to take care of his family. Jesus wanted to carry on his father’s legacy. He had his dad's clientele list with many potential customers, but needed guidance on where and how to start.

Jesus reached out to the Harbor-Watts BusinessSource Center (BSC) in the hopes that they could assist him with applications for the proper licenses and permits to operate legally. After the needs assessment was conducted, his Harbor-Watts business coach determined an LLC was the best formation option. With the support of the Harbor-Watts BSC, Jesus is now the proud owner of Tony' s Bros LLC.

Jesus successfully completed his first event in April. The client was so impressed, he hired Tony's Bros for multiple future events. Jesus quickly followed up with the BSC for information on how to hire new employees. The Harbor-Watts BSC looks forward to helping Tony's Bros in the future, as Jesus' potential is limitless.

Tony’s Bros LLC is located in LA City Council District 15.
