Giving Tuesday Client Spotlight: Fajita Kings

Nestled in Temple, Texas, Fajita Kings stands out as a hub for diverse culinary experiences. Their menu caters to a broad range of preferences, from savory breakfast tacos to satisfying catering services with sizzling fajitas taking center stage. More than a restaurant, it’s a haven for those seeking Latin-inspired dishes, all-day breakfast options, delightful desserts, and an array of tantalizing drinks.
Behind the success of Fajita Kings stands the visionary owner, Fernando Suarez, a true culinary artisan with deep roots in the restaurant industry. Fernando’s journey began in 2003 when he took his first step into the world of gastronomy as a busboy at a local Tex-Mex restaurant. Over the years, he honed his skills, working as a fry cook, dishwasher, order filler, cook/kitchen manager, waiter, and shift manager at various Mexican and fast-casual restaurants. His expertise and dedication led him to the role of general manager where he oversaw everything from employee hiring and scheduling to repairs, maintenance, and customer service. Suarez had worked in almost every role possible, and his experience mixed with his entrepreneurial mind spurred him to open his own restaurant, Fajita Kings in April 2020.
PeopleFund recognized the potential and passion in Suarez’s vision for Fajita Kings and stepped in to provide a lifeline. Through the SBA Community Advantage program, Fajita Kings was able to refinance existing debt, acquire essential equipment, bolster working capital, and cover other expenses and costs. This assistance played a pivotal role in ensuring the restaurant’s continued growth and success, even in the face of challenges like the COVID-19 pandemic. Armed with a wealth of experience and an unwavering passion for creating the perfect dining experience, Fernando embarked on his journey to bring Fajita Kings to life in April 2020. Through his dedication and culinary ingenuity, he transformed a dream into a vibrant reality.
