Metal_HPSan Jose, CA – Metal Gourmet, Inc., a San Jose-based builder of mobile food carts and trailers, helped make a tamale-maker’s dream come true when it donated a custom mobile food cart to Alicia Villanueva.

“We are very excited to see Alicia launch her business,” said Jeff Burke, CEO and president of Metal Gourmet. “We appreciate the difficulties of establishing a mobile food business, especially for someone with limited resources, and we see this donation as removing one large obstacle standing between Alicia and her dream.”

Villanueva had been making tamales for friends and families her whole life when she decided it was time to turn her passion into a business. The mother of three sometimes sold tamales door to door, but she dreamed of having her own tamale cart. With the assistance of La Cocina, a nonprofit incubator and kitchen that helps low-income immigrant women start and grow food businesses, Villanueva developed a business plan and obtained permits to sell at San Francisco’s Justin Herman Plaza and Off the Grid.
