After being a loyal customer at his favorite sandwich shop, Oscar Lopez resolved that one day he would run the business. First he became an employee and worked in the shop during two years. Then, when the opportunity arose, he purchased the shop. What started as a vision became a reality. This required hard work and creativity.
Today, Deli 23 is a thriving business. Oscar embodies the American Dream. He seized the opportunity, embraced the challenge, and is now a proud entrepreneur.
Oscar had clear goals. He knew he had to invest capital to make some improvements. He started with a makeover to the dining area. He also bought new equipment to improve the workflow and better serve the clients.
“The business had so much potential. I needed to invest capital to ease my employees work, and always with customer service in mind.”
A new look, happier customers and employees, and big plans for the future.
With the help of Camino Financial, Oscar was able to buy new equipment for the deli, and new tables and chairs for the dining area. He also invested on the storefront to bring in more foot traffic. These changes have brought more clients, and Oscar has now plans to expand Deli 23 throughout San Francisco, California.
“It’s amazing how the new equipment has improved the efficiency and allowed us to handle a higher volume of clients. I can provide my customers with better service, and my employees are working more comfortably. I’m working hard to take the business further: I’m planning to expand and open more locations in San Francisco.”
