Wichita Falls listed in top 100 for Hispanic Entrepreneurs

WICHITA FALLS, TX -

A new report from Goodcall.com, a report by careers and personal finance website ranks Wichita Falls 63rd in the top 100 best cities for Hispanic Entrepreneurs.  

The report surveyed more than 381 places in the US based off of educational values for Hispanics, networking potential, a high density of Hispanic business owners and access to affordable housing. 

One Mexican restaurant in town said they are not surprised by that ranking. 

El Mejicano opened its doors for the first time in 1983, and has passed the business down through generations.  

It is now one of the oldest Mexican restaurants in town and Jennine Garcia said they work hard to make sure they stay one of a kind.  

“It's the buffet,” said Garcia.  “Right away you can see it.   You can smell all of the delicious Mexican food that we have to offer.”

Cantu Services, which owns the restaurant is Richard Cantu’s passion.  After working as a cook in the military, which included time at Sheppard Air Force Base, he retired and started his own business using his grandmother’s recipes. 

“It's nice to have a family restaurant where everybody can be apart,” said Garcia.  “To contribute and work hard.”

Carlos Paniagua is a manager at El Mejicano, and says his last 13 years of working there have been enjoyable because of the passion he sees from Cantu.

“He takes good care of us and we take good care of him,” said Paniagua.

The family works hard not only to keep the restaurant enjoyable for the workers—but for customers as well.  They want to make sure that people will come and eat time and time again. 

“That just goes to show the environment that's been here the people who are here and are willing to work and to work hard,” said Garcia.  “It's great that we are contributing here and others are contributing here.”
