Theresa Gavilanes is the owner of Fajitas & Spice Shop, an upscale spice shop in Brooklyn.
She opened the shop last year after finding a job that didn’t require her to live in the borough.
“I felt like I was going to have to leave.
It’s very important to me that I keep my family together,” Gavimanes told The Associated Press in an interview.
Gavimenes said she wanted to open a spice store for her husband, who lives in the Bronx, because the neighborhood was “so quiet” and there were so many shops.
Fajitas is a favorite spice shop of the New York City foodies, who like to add a few extra spices to their dishes.
They include red pepper flakes, dried herbs and cumin.
But the shop also sells many other spices, including oregano, cinnamon, paprika, chili powder and ginger.
The shop’s ingredients list has been growing since the 1970s, with new additions like basil, lemon, garlic and ginger in recent years.
The shop has about 40 employees, most of whom are women.
It has been open since April, and the owner has started to see some growth.
“We have been able to really take advantage of our employees, and they really enjoy coming here,” Givilanes said.
“I’ve been very lucky in the past, and I hope to continue to do so.”
The shop sells mostly organic produce, and it sells a mix of fresh and canned ingredients.
It also has a small collection of spices, which Gavinanes said she’ll keep stocked if she ever need them.
She said she hopes to open another spice shop soon in the neighborhood, but that the store is currently focused on selling other spices.
“If I ever have to sell out, I’ll have another spice store in the area,” Gevilanes added.
“But right now, we’re focusing on the produce, so we can sell more spices.”
