Julie King, Villa México Café, Boston, MA: 2022 Rising Star Nominee
“We have learned from the CWE webinars and taken advantage of programs like the Sam Adams American Dream pitch competition, as well as applied and received grants promoted by CWE through COVID to help us stay open.”
Villa México Café is one of the first authentic Mexican restaurants in Massachusetts and Boston. Women, immigrant, and family owned, it has been in operation for 22 years now without partners or business loans (until COVID). Julie serves food made with her family's recipes and strives to share the real traditions and culture of Mexico with her friends, her customers.
