Fuerza Local Spotlight: Ricky Gonzalez, Mundo de Sabores
Ricky Gonzalez is the owner and chef of Mundo de Sabores, a catering company that specializes in creating and serving internationally inspired Latin dishes. From a young age, Ricky loved to cook, and in January 2015, Ricky accomplished his dream of owning a business. One of his motivations was, and continues to be, to help his migrant LGTBQ community succeed by creating employment opportunities. Ricky is part of the most recent Fuerza Local business accelerator class.
“The passion, love, creativity and dedication that I have for cooking was what inspired me to start my business. Since I was young, I dreamed of having my own restaurant, but also to support my migrant LGBTQ community overcome the many obstacles we face by being different. With the support of many, Mundo de Sabores has been able to support to seven people, but our dream and goal is to open a restaurant and be able to provide part-time employment to many more.”
