We had the good fortune of connecting with Mike & Abby Lopez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Mike & Abby, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
Our thought process behind starting this business was that we wanted to share an expression of Faith and Gratefulness through clothing and spread Hope. We spend 6 months in the ICU with our son, in 3 different times during those months the doctors told us our son wouldn’t survive. But now our son Miguel is healthy and growing strong every day. We know that is nothing short of a miracle he is alive, we know it came from above not from us and that’s why 2nd Corinthians 4:7 is so important to us. We want to share with everyone through our clothing line to have hope no matter what situation you may find yourself in.

Let’s talk shop? Tell us more about your career, what can you share with our community?
We have learned that people do not just want to consume a product but they want to be part of a movement. And that’s what we want to do with our brand that it can be a reminder of hope that it doesn’t matter what situation you may go through hope is always there.

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
First, we would take them to Cidercade it has arcade games of all kind and it is a friendly family environment. And while we are downtown there are tons of spots like Discovery Green, the Aquarium, Minute Maid park. And then make our way to Rice Box for some yummy food or if you are a pizza lover Russo’s New York Pizzeria is the place for you. We can’t forget about stopping at Bahama Buck’s for some delicious shaved ice & other frozen beverages.
