Tatiana Pacheco had been laid off and decided to take control of her financial future. She saw a need for healthier food options in her local community and decided to make a difference. Initially seeded with a loan from family, Tatiana turned her kitchen into a thriving healthy food delivery service.
When it was clear that it was time to expand, Tatiana connected with the LA SBDC, and, with their help, evolved her business into Andrea’s Healthy Kitchen (AHK) – the first pressed juice bar in the city of El Monte.
The SBDC advisors helped Tatiana with her business plan, permits, and with the process to purchase the property. Exponentially profitable over the last few years, AHK has repaid all personal loans and is currently investing in upgrades to further enhance the experience of the customer.
