ELOY, Ariz. — The aroma of delectable food will be wafting down Frontier Street in Eloy starting today.
La Paloma Restaurant has opened for business after more than a year of planning by the Pinal Hispanic Council.
The restaurant is funded by Cenpatico, operated by Pinal Hispanic Council (PHC), and is an incubator business affiliated with Central Arizona College.
In addition to being a much-anticipated new eating establishment for Eloy and surrounding locales, La Paloma restaurant is also a place that focuses on the community.
With funding from Cenpatico, PHC will be able to hire trainees who are looking to learn about the restaurant business and to gain the skills to work in any restaurant.
Ralph Varela, CEO of PHC and business manager and director of the restaurant, said that the restaurant will be balanced between a permanent staff and trainees who are looking for assistance in getting into the job market, especially the hospitality business.
When the opportunity arose for the Pinal Hispanic Council to purchase a restaurant in Eloy, and
name it “La Paloma, (when translated in English means “The Dove”), CEO, Ralph Varela proposed
to the Board of Directors to develop a restaurant business incubator to empower individuals to become self-sufficient with increased job skills and opportunities in the hospitality industry. The restaurant has become a symbol in Eloy and surrounding communities in Pinal County, of what will work when the community gives individuals an opportunity to begin a new life.
La Paloma makes all of our soups, sauces and salad dressings from scratch. Our menu features recipes from the Pinal Hispanic Council and La Paloma staff, as well as a few residents from the Eloy community. We use the freshest ingredients to give you a truly memorable dining experience. “Buen Provecho”, from the staff at La Paloma & Pinal Hispanic Council.
