Tijuana’s Mexican Restaurant

“Detroit Development Fund really believed in us. They looked at common sense, not just the bottom line” –Steven Guzina, Marisa’s husband

On March 26, 2012, Mrs. Marisa Garcia, a native of Southwest Detroit, and her family opened their third location of Tijuana’s Mexican Restaurant in Detroit.  Detroit Development Fund lent Marisa a loan for the down payment and purchase of new equipment. Marisa has been in business for over 20 years and now employs 40 people.
