Arturo's Mexican Restaurant Finds Financial Success With Help From SCORE Mentor, Arturo Guillen
Our restaurant continues to grow in popularity, and a second location is under consideration! Since working with SCORE, I have learned a lot about delegation and staff organization. Now I can balance a successful and thriving restaurant and spending quality time with my family.
We are an authentic Mexican restaurant with excellent food, great entertainment, weekly specials, and live mariachi!
After accomplishing my goal of earning a college degree, marrying my childhood sweetheart, Jaqueline, and becoming a restaurant manager I became the proud owner of Arturo’s Mexican Restaurant in 1999!
I was attempting to gain a better understanding of my financial records and improve my managerial skills.
Not only did Les Babcock help me with my financial statements, but he also helped me with my taxes, legal obligations, marketing strategy, insurance and business planning. We also worked on my personnel needs and developed an employee handbook.
Les and other SCORE counsellors really cared about me and my business. They provided lots of valuable feedback about my financials and operations. I went in thinking they would just look at the financials, but they’ve been able to help me with everything I’ve needed. Les is more than a mentor; now, he’s a friend.
Although running a business can be very stressful, you may be reluctant to delegate tasks to others. SCORE helped me improve my staff organization, which allowed me to have more time to spend with my family.
