We had the good fortune of connecting with Norma Rodriguez and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Norma, we’d love for you to start things off by telling us something about your industry that we and others not in the industry might be unaware of?
I believe that the catering industry is comprised of businesses that not only provide food, beverages and other services to a variety of clients, but a full experience for special occasions. I feel that our industry offers people the chance to explore a tremendous variety of flavors, culture, art, history, and the meaning behind the culinary art.

Alright, so for those in our community who might not be familiar with your business, can you tell us more?
Los Anafres Cuisine it’s a family Catering business, offering international food but we proudly especially in Mexican Cuisine, Our clients love us because the delicious food that we prepare, using the best quality ingredients and a lots of love, our goal is understand the vision of our value clients, to make their events the perfect ones, extending our exceptional service that characterises us. I feel so proud of my team and my self, that despite all this sad situation, we did not surrendered, and we keep going until God let us, working harder and happier than ever, and to all of our family and friends that are struggling, please DO NOT give up, it’s hard times for everyone but, stay focus, keep calm, and keep going.
