Remember, sharing is caring!

“During my career in the finance industry working in investment banking I felt something was missing in my life. So I decided to go back to school and earn an MBA to help me transition into a new career. But when faced with the question: would you rather work 40 hours for a paycheck or 80 for something you care about, I choose the latter. Clueless on what to do next, I gravitated towards something I love: authentic Mexican food. I was having issues sourcing the ingredients I needed, so I started growing these rare ingredients in containers and a DIY­-hydroponic setup. One day in the shower, it hit me: there’s probably a better business opportunity fulfilling sourcing gaps of rare ingredients for local restaurants than starting another food joint and La Flaca was born.”
