As excerpted from The Uken Report:
INDIO — The much-beloved, go-to staple of authentic Mexican food is the family-owned Arriola Tortilleria on Wilson Avenue. While in October 2015, the city of Indio recognized the multi-generational business during National Hispanic Heritage Month, never has the eatery been honored beyond the city limits — until now.
Democratic Assemblymember Eduardo Garcia will recognize Arriola’s Tortilleria as the 56th Assembly District’s 2018 Small Business of the Year on Saturday, July 20. The award is recognition of the restaurant’s support of the community and steadfast commitment to customer service and high business ethics, according to Garcia’s Resolution.
“Small businesses area critical to the economic well-being of the state of California aby creating new business and employment opportunities and by bringing unique and innovative services and products to the marketplace,” Garcia said in his Resolution.
