“We are a family of immigrants who have fought for 25 years to achieve our goals through hard work, in fact my youngest daughter works alongside me. After years of experience, we decided to start our own business, assuming any responsibility that this challenge involved. The best recognition we have received is the acceptance of community members to become regular customers of our business.”
