Misael Guerrero grew up around food, working in restaurants and grocery stores up until moving from his hometown in Sinaloa, Mexico to California 12 years ago. Once he made the move, Misael stuck to his food roots and got his start selling tamales outside of a swap meet. With dedication and a passion for food, Misael would work hard and catch a major break.
Misael came to a realization that one of his home’s specialty dishes, Mexican-style sushi, was nowhere to be seen in California. So, with this in mind, Misael took it upon himself to bring Mexican-style sushi to the area. He started off small, selling the sushi from his garage. Fans of his swap meet tamales came to taste his new dish, and the news of the new food venture spread quickly by word of mouth. As the business increased in popularity, Misael moved into a small restaurant in Rialto, CA, and CulichiTown was born.
Over the years, CulichiTown has seen incredible growth. Now, in 2020, the restaurant has become a full-on chain, with 15 different locations across the US. Misael has succeeded in his mission to bring authentic Sinaloan flavor to his franchise, taking great care to thoroughly train staff to prepare the food the traditional way. One of the brand’s biggest focuses is to make the entire experience a taste of Sinaloa, and so far, CulichiTown has seen nothing but success. With more locations already planned, this restaurant franchise may become a household name in the years to come.
