Join NAWBO Columbus and Lisa Gutierrez at our June Monthly Meeting as Lisa shares her entrepreneurial journey.
In 2012, Lisa left her Cheesecake Factory manager position of 10 years to follow a wild dream of starting a food truck business with her husband. They started with nothing but a borrowed food truck, $2,000 in savings, and a whole lot of ambition. Through these hopes and aspirations, they brought Dos Hermanos Taco Truck to life, bringing Vincente’s family’s authentic Oaxacan-style recipes to their community. This authenticity is what would eventually lead long lines and raving fans to their truck. 10 years later, Dos Hermanos has 3 brick-and-mortar locations, mobile food trucks, and concession stands in the both new Crew Stadium (Lower.com Field) and inside the Greater Columbus Convention Center.
Join us to hear Lisa share her knowledge and aspire entrepreneurs to the path of success.
ABOUT OUR SPEAKER:

Dos Hermanos was recognized by the ICIC as one of the fastest growing inner city companies in America, in terms of revenue and job creation. As Lisa works to keep her business growing, create new job opportunities for her community, and collaborate with other small businesses, she also finds time to sit on the advisory board for both the Women’s Business Center and the Women’s Center of Economic Opportunity. In addition, she sits on the Dublin Executive Board of the Chamber of Commerce where she helps moderate and create discussion about helping out the community. Lisa’s most recent accomplishments are launching both her public speaking company, Lisa G.
