UMLF: Hi Tania! We’re excited to interview you as our Business of the Month. Tell us about yourself.
Tania: "I'm originally from Chihuahua Mexico, I shared the same dream as many as those who came to this Country, to build a better life for me and my family, I have lived in Ogden Utah for more than half of my life, my favorite part of Utah is the mountains and the people, Ogdentines accepted me and opened their arms to me until they made feel that I'm one of them, so this is my place to stay, Ogden is now what I can call home."
UMLF: Tell us about Los Churros del Norte and why you decided to start your business?
Tania: "Los Churros del Norte started as a business idea that with a lot of sacrifices and work it's now a reality. I'm a big fan of small business ownership, I think it's the backbone of American innovation. But to be successful you first have to have the courage to go for it. I'm an immigrant and Ogden is now my home.
From a very young age I discovered that my mission in this life is to serve others, at the age of 12 I began my volunteer service and I continue to do so. Now I have a family to support and I had to find a way to generate money to continue helping others, now I not only help through the American Red Cross but also do my bit through my small business that one day will make a difference in our community, none of this could be possible without the support of my husband, my family and my community."
UMLF: What are some of the different kinds of desserts you make and which is your favorite ?
Tania: "We make 'Authentic Mexican Churros from scratch and by hand with dipping sauces like homemade dulce de leche, chocolate or vanilla. Coconut mango rice pudding and sopaipillas topped with strawberries and bananas, whipped cream and chocolate, dulce de leche sauce. My favorite is the churros because nobody makes them from scratch and in every bite the flavors take me to Mexico where I'm from."
UMLF: Where can people find your delicious goodies?
Tania: "People can find me in different events around Weber and Davis county, we often post where we will be on our Facebook and Instagram."
UMLF: Every business has its highs and lows. Can you tell us about a challenge you faced as an entrepreneur and how you overcame it?
Tania: "The challenge that I faced as a small business owner was to start, it was hard to start and know that all can go wrong, but I consider myself a risk taker and I had to do it, I worked hard and I kept trying. It can be scary to start a business on your own, but I found great leadership and guidance from ULMF. I'm very grateful for them."
