We had the good fortune of connecting with RAUL Guerrero Jr and we’ve shared our conversation below.
Hi RAUL, is there something that you feel is most responsible for your success?
Consistency in our product execution and ensuring that our client experience is a positive one. Our team works hard in ensuring the products we are selling to our guests is of the highest quality standard. This has been our standard and expectation from day one and we work very hard to ensure we continue to set that bar.
Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
I have been in the culinary industry for 23 years now. I have held all positions in the kitchen. My business has given me the opportunity to push myself to the limits and venture into something I can call my own. There is no real handbook and this pandemic has definitely thrown a wrench into our plans. However, our team, our clients and our community are the reason we remain so agile. It has allowed us to meet new people and provide food for those in need.
If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
We love visiting local restaurants. It all depends on our mood. We have too many favorites!
The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
My team- wife and Co-Owner Evelyn. Our phenomenal Chef Manager Chris, who works hard alongside us and helps our ship runs smoothly. Lastly, our loyal clients, who continue to support our business, even through a pandemic. We wouldn’t be the team we are today without any of these important pieces.
