Before opening the restaurant, Arturo worked in remodeling and construction and was also involved in three Boulder restaurants around thirty years ago, and he says the high volume of work “stayed in his blood”. Although the restaurant hours are 7am—2pm, Arturo works long and hard hours from 5:30am—9 or 10pm. Arturo says that he is managing the work load and the business with his knowledge from the previous restaurants and is learning as he goes and taking in things as they come.
With the help of Boulder SBDC consultant, Jesse Esparza, Arturo was able to establish his business name, determine what licenses and registrations he needed for his restaurant and comply with health department, city, county and state regulations.
“Jesse is very personable and knowledgeable."
In the future, Arturo would like to do some landscaping in the front of his restaurant and extend the hours of the restaurant into the evening. He would like to put a sign outside of the restaurant that allows traffic to see that the restaurant is there before driving right by it. Arturo plans to seek an alcohol license for his business if he decides to open for dinner. When Arturo is ready to expand, he will contact the Boulder SBDC for assistance.
