Stories of SuccessLeslie & Alex Olano | Olano’s Empanadas
In 2013, Leslie and Victor Olano decided to do something they were passionate about and control their own destiny. Utilizing Victor’s background in the culinary world, they wanted to introduce a different cuisine to Southeast Wisconsin.
The couple took WWBIC’s 10-week Small Biz Planning Series, where they wrote their business plan and networked with other entrepreneurs. They opened Olano’s Empanadas, a catering business specializing in Peruvian baked empanadas, in November 2013. Leslie and Victor rent a kitchen in the incubator at HALO (Homeless Assistance Leadership Organization) with a long-term goal of a cafe or food truck.
