Tropical Mexico Restaurant
Restaurant in Pomona, CA
Our story starts in 1977, when Jaime Lepe, at the young age of 23, purchased Tropical Mexico Restaurant with two of his brothers. Despite Jaime's young age, he had learned the essentials of running a business from working few years at his brother-in-law's Mexican Restaurant in Brea, CA. Jaime and his brother Fidel were the ones in charge of managing their restaurant in Pomona. They worked long hours, and more often than not, would barely sell enough to cover their costs. Nevertheless, they both had the dream of one day becoming successful business owners.
