“Your support means the world as we embark on this journey on Broadway Street. We look forward to sharing our passion for food and hospitality at this new location,” said Ernesto García, founder of Ay Arepa New Haven.
“I just wanna say how excited I am for what’s to come, as someone who’s been a part of this fitness community for 10 years, it’s just meant so much to me and had an impact on me personally,” said Mike Haggerty, co-owner of Strength Haven Athletics.
The new businesses are helping to bring jobs to New Haven.
