Hispanic entrepreneurs open new Mexican restaurants

The Tennessean reports that restaurants continue to cultivate careers in business and integrate Hispanics into the Nashville community.

"[Nashville Area Hispanic Chamber of Commerce President Yuri] Cunza said Hispanic entrepreneurs are starting more restaurants and businesses in west Davidson County, and that plenty of area Hispanics work for a living - and work their way up to management positions and business ownerships - at eateries all over Middle Tennessee."

The article features the story of Cecilia Alva, who came to the U.S. from Peru and worked her way up in the restaurant business and is now a part owner in Fiesta Azteca, a Mexican restaurant on Elliston Place.

"Cunza said Hispanic entrepreneurs, who he declined to name, are also competing for a prime west-side restaurant space, the former Rio Bravo chain restaurant at 3915 West End Ave."

"Also coming soon to the west side are two other large Hispanic-owned Mexican restaurants - Cinco de Mayo at 358 White Bridge Road and Las Palmas in the Kroger Shopping Center at the corner of Gale Lane and Franklin Pike."
