The Torta Chaser, Douglas Nunez & Rafael Bruno

Title / Role: Owners
What inspired you to start your business?

Douglas and Rafael dreamed of having their own food truck. Due to the pandemic, they had been furloughed, and instead of seeing it as an obstacle, they viewed it as an opportunity to pursue their dreams.

What's special about your business?

Douglas feels as if their from-scratch menu is something that sets them apart from other food trucks. With a desire to follow in the footsteps of their grandparents, both Rafael and Douglas wanted to be able to leave a legacy behind with their food truck.

How SCORE helped.

The business partners found SCORE through a Google search. They found invaluable information being given to them by their mentor. SCORE was able to get The Torta Chaser to a point where Douglas and Rafael felt confident to take the plunge and launch.

What would you tell a fellow business owner about SCORE?

"My biggest piece of advice that I would give someone who is thinking about working with SCORE would be to work with SCORE. Utilize their services, and sign up with them. They have a bunch of different mentors in different areas. As soon as you get the opportunity, go for it."
