LEWES — The first Latino Business and Community Expo will be held from 2-6 p.m. on Saturday, Feb. 25 at Cape Henlopen High School, bringing together Latino business owners and local residents for a celebration of Delaware’s cultural diversity and entrepreneurial spirit.
“Delaware’s Latino-owned businesses offer an amazing array of products and services to the residents of Sussex County,” said Mary Dupont, executive director of La Plaza Delaware.
“From local restaurants to skilled contractors who specialize in finely crafted porches, kitchens, bathrooms, handyman services, plumbing, electric, painting, custom tailoring, cleaning, and much more, the excellence of our community will be showcased at this great event.”
The event is free to the public and includes Central American cuisine prepared onsite, live music by the Ecuadorian group featuring Carlos Erazo on pan flute, speeches by dignitaries, and most importantly, Delaware’s finest Latino-owned businesses.
It is organized by the Delaware Alliance of Latino Entrepreneurs, or ¡DALE!, a new organization devoted to strengthening and supporting the Latino business community, and La Plaza Delaware, a nonprofit partnership working to boost Latino and minority-owned businesses.
Sergio Morales, owner of E&S Morales Brothers of Milton and president of ¡DALE!, said they are looking forward to connecting with Sussex County residents interested in home additions and renovations.
“This Expo will be an excellent opportunity to meet potential customers and talk with fellow business owners about partnerships,” he said.
