HPNG Entrepreneurs October Networking Event in New York

Dear Friends & Colleagues:

You're invited to the HPNG Entrepreneurs Networking Event on Tuesday, October 30th in New York.

Latinos and food are bound to each other by more than just exciting flavors. Our food is a source of pride and it's a front-runner in the way it shapes our culture.

The business of Latino food runs the gamut from the humble taco truck to the high-end hotspots frequented by celebrities. However, it's safe to say that in this economy, any would-be restaurateur would think twice before venturing into this line of business.

So I invited the pros to help us navigate this territory. During our chat we'll explore the factors that help transform this service business from good to exceptional.

Please join us as we proudly welcome:

Ms. Johanna Mendoza
Chief Executive Officer
Taina Cafe
