About our CEO

Guillermina Ibanez

Guillermina, a resilient and visionary woman, was born in the picturesque village of El Zapotito, nestled on a hill in the state of San Luis Potosí, Mexico. From an early age, her life was marked by a profound connection to her roots and a determination to overcome challenges. At the tender age of five or six, she ventured from her humble beginnings to the bustling city, where her older sister paved the way for her education.

The trajectory of Guillermina's life took a transformative turn when, at the age of 16, she migrated to the United States with dreams as vast as the horizon. Fueled by a desire to pursue opportunities and save money for her education, she embraced the challenges of a new land with courage and optimism. The initial years were marked by hard work, as she and her brother navigated the complexities of a foreign culture.

In 1999, Guillermina, undeterred by the obstacles she faced, co-founded a small restaurant. Hand in hand with her family, she cultivated her passion for culinary arts, turning her establishment into a thriving business. The restaurant became a testament to her dedication, embodying the flavors of both her Mexican heritage and the American dream.

Guillermina's journey was not without its trials. A marriage and partnership in the restaurant industry led to both success and setbacks. The challenges, including a significant personal and financial loss, became pivotal moments for growth and self-discovery. Undeterred by adversity, she rebuilt her life, opening a new restaurant and exploring the realms of radio and television.

Throughout her dynamic career, Guillermina's story reflects resilience, determination, and an unwavering commitment to her roots. Today, she stands as an inspiration—a Mexican-born woman who migrated to the United States with dreams of creating her restaurant, turning challenges into opportunities, and leaving an indelible mark on the culinary landscape.
