“Jaime Soltero Jr. opened the door to his first Portland restaurant location for Tamale Boy in March of 2014–Less than three months ago! By doing so Soltero falls in line with a larger trend of successful food carts expanding into restaurant locations. At the time of this interview, Soltero was just a few weeks removed from opening his brick-and-mortar presence and was kind enough to share what the experience of starting a new restaurant has been like so far.

In this episode Soltero covers a variety of topics relevant to food truck entrepreneurs considering the transition to restaurant ownership, including the process of finding the right location,  getting a restaurant designed and built, and the differences between owning a food cart versus a restaurant. Soltero even provides tips on determining if buying a restaurant is the right move for your business.”
