Based on market research, clients have the need to have access to a unique product of
high quality with unique flavors influenced from vast regions around the world.
Although there are more tamale stores in the market, none of them fill the need to have
a quickly access like our product. Also, because of the mission that our company
represents, our own research has showed that clients will buy our products because by
doing it, they will be contributing to a good cause.
We are looking to benefit onsite 5 men and woman victims of domestic violence a

the subject, on this way we are planning to reach more than 50 persons per month.
