Puerto Rican Restaurant Summit: A Success on Paseo Boricua



Eduardo Arocho

The Division Street Business Development Association (DSBDA) hosted the first Puerto Rican Restaurant Summit at the famous Teresa Roldan Apartments on the corner of Campbell and Division. Over 50 business owners and entrepreneurs participated in the meeting on Wednesday, March 17. The goal of the summit was to present to Puerto Rican restaurant owners the idea and the benefits of opening a Restaurant on Paseo Boricua.

Since 2001, DSBDA has been working to create a Puerto Rican Restaurant District on Paseo Boricua. Among the presenters was 26th Ward Alderman Roberto Maldonado, who supports the Puerto Rican Restaurant District and made a presentation on the Small Business Improvement Fund (SBIF) program to assist business owners.
