HOLYOKE — The Greater Holyoke Chamber of Commerce’s summer Chamber After Hours networking event will be staged tonight at Fiesta Café at 305 Main Street, starting at 5, as the business celebrates the opening of its new outdoor patio with a ribbon cutting.
Fiesta Café opened its doors in January 2015 with the aim of holding Latino culture high in downtown Holyoke. Owned and operated by Juan Montano, Fiesta Café is a family-orientated restaurant that believes in keeping family and tradition together.
The Montano family has lived in Holyoke for more than 25 years. The family’s first business was established in Holyoke in the’ 90’s when they opened a jewelry store called Montano Jewelry Store. The family patriarch later went on to open his own snack distribution business that services all of New England and which is still going strong today.
Following in their father’s footsteps, Montano’s enterprising sons decided to try their hand in business and opened Fiesta Café. With many of their goods imported from Puerto Rico, such as their coffee and bread, Juan and his team serve up a delicious menu of traditional Latino fare with great customer service.
The networking event is from 5 to 7, and the ribbon-cutting ceremony will take place at 6, with welcoming remarks from Mayor Alex Morse. State Rep. Aaron Vega and Holyoke Chamber of Commerce President Kathleen Anderson are also scheduled to attend.
Other festivities include, signature mojitos, music, and a 50/50 raffle.
