“During the winter holidays of 2011, I wanted to see if my favorite taco shop in Minneapolis was open,” said Mario Lopez, founder of En-phone.com. “I searched Google, Bing and Yahoo! but I couldn’t find the basic information about this small shop. I instantly realized small businesses like my favorite taco shop that cater to Hispanics needed a directory so people can contact them. A few months later, En-phone.com was born—all because of the power of a taco!”
