Julio's Cafe Corona is a restaurant currently on the East Side. The man we're profiling today is not an established businessman. He is Francisco Orrantia, the grandson of the man you are referring to. The man you are referring to established the restaurant in Juarez 60 years ago. But Francisco is opening up a brand new Julio's in the Far East section of town.

He faces extreme difficulties in opening the new restaurant, and we will profile that. Thanks for the comment.

He is not starting a new business. He is an established businessman who moved from Juarez and has opening different locals. He is experienced, well off, businessman.
