Real Mexican Fare


His dream started in 2000 with 13 small tables, and grew to 40 tables just two years after.  Then
the business started getting busier, so he extended to 50 tables.  Jesus Lopez is a hard worker, so he
did his planning and worked hard for several years in order to reach his goal of a big restaurant.           
In 2005, in the same location, Mi Pueblo restaurant was remodelled in order to comfortably serve 250 people.

Since the beginning of Mi Pueblo restaurant, Lopez's first employees were family, and today five of them are managers, well trained with experience in all the restaurant's areas of service.          

Mi Pueblo restaurant is a successful minority business that provides employment to 45
people.  Lopez's vision has been to promote the best employees, and takes into account who have worked hard and have showed interest in learning more about the business.

Mi Pueblo restaurant has been recognized over the years and has grown into an important part of the community.

Lopez is a wise entrepreneur, developing other businesses that he felt were missing in the area.
El Kiosko, a banquet hall across the street of Mi Pueblo restaurant, opened in 2009 and can host 400 people.
Lopez opened his third business next door to the banquet hall, a graphic design company.  Graphic Fusion offers services in graphic design, websites, screen printing, and signs.   

For Jesus Lopez the success is not in what you have, it is in the knowledge you're able to get.

Jesus, Where have you turned to find capital to grow your company and which institutions have
provided it? 
 
Chase Bank has provided us credits to make our projects possible.

About Michigan... if you could change one thing about this region, what would it be?
I wouldn't change anything in the state of Michigan, not even the weather…I found everything
beautiful. I think we can work to improve the infrastructure. Most of the time it doesn't work for all
as should be.
