Baja Sonora Featured During First Prime Time for Business Presentation at City Council Meeting
(LONG BEACH, CA; March 20, 2012) – The very popular Baja Sonora restaurant and catering service will be the first Long Beach business showcased during the “Prime Time for Business” segment at the Long Beach City Council meeting, today announced Councilwoman Gerrie Schipske.
Schipske authored a proposal at City Council in February to give local businesses the opportunity to make a 5-minute presentation during the third council meeting of the month and to highlight their services and any job openings they may have for local residents. Each councilmember has the opportunity to invite a business to make a presentation during City Council.
“This is the least the City Council can do to show local businesses that we appreciate they are doing business in Long Beach. These businesses not only provide sale tax revenue, they provide jobs and community services that sometimes go unnoticed,” says Schipske. “Small businesses are the backbone of our economy and Long Beach needs to get more people to start businesses locally. I hope the City Council taking time to listen to these businesses will send a message that we appreciate what they do for our economy.”
Baja Sonora is an authentic Mexican Restaurant with two locations in Long beach, located in the 5th and 7th Council Districts. Baja Sonora has been in business for 14 years and is the recipient of awards and distinctions that include: “Best Tacos in Long Beach-Press Telegram 2007”, “Ultimate Taco” in Sunset Magazine’s “Best of the West” and the “2011 Fifth District Good Neighbor Award.”
“Baja Sonora is more than two fantastic places to eat,” Schipske notes. “The owners, Mary Sophiea and Mike Mendelson have made a tremendous commitment to our local schools by donating more than $30,000 for school projects.”
Baja Sonora sponsors PTA Mondays, and donates 10% of purchases made every Monday to any “Parent Teacher Association” selected by its customers. Baja Sonora is located at: 2940 Clark Avenue and 3502 Atlantic Avenue. Both locations are open at 10:30 am until 9 pm.
