New Eateries, Businesses Opening in Mission Viejo
New businesses continue to open during this challenging time of COVID-19. Here is a summary of latest business news.
The Curry Kitchen opened for business on Sunday, December 6 in the former Pizza Hut spot at 25098 Marguerite Pkwy, Suite C near Ralphs. The eatery, which specializes in Indian fare, is offering takeout and delivery.
According to its website, Plumeria Cake Studio is taking limited orders while it prepares to open its new store at 26137 La Paz Rd., Suite A2. The establishment specializes in all things cakes including wedding cakes.
Taqueros Mexican Restaurant opened about a week ago at 28251 Marguerite Parkway, Suite G. The restaurant, also located in San Juan Capistrano, serves up authentic Mexican cuisine.
In other business news, the owner of new Raising Plants OC told City staff she hopes that folks working from home during this time will purchase plants to freshen up their new work spaces. Find more about the business, which is located at 28715 Los Alisos Blvd., on Instagram @raisingplantsoc or by calling 949-462-4515.
Especially during the pandemic, the City encourages residents to support local businesses and restaurants – if they can – by purchasing gift cards for the holidays and future use, shopping online and enjoying Mission Viejo eateries via takeout, pickup and delivery.
Actually, I believe the Curry Kitchen is in the old Pizza Hut location (not Domino's). It's moved in next door to the laundromat and the Big Chopsticks, yes?
I'm thrilled to see that new businesses are opening in our great community.
It is the very first time anyone refers to how much our local small businesses have been affected by COVID lockdowns. So I disagree that the lockdowns have had limited effects. Our city is nothing but pop up tents which are ruined by Santa Ana winds and outdoor seating now closed which I never thought was sanitary to begin with. Perhaps you should start encouraging more support for businesses or we will be left with low quality dining establishments and everything will close.
In response to the above comment: On Tuesday, December 8, 2020, the City Council authorized a $1,000,000 COVID Business Relief Grant Program, to assist both businesses and non-profit groups located in Mission Viejo that have been impacted by the Coronavirus pandemic. Grants up to $25,000 are available to businesses with 25 or fewer employees (full-time equivalent). Applications will be accepted until available funds are exhausted. If you or anyone you know are interested in applying for a grant, additional information and an application can be found here: https://cityofmissionviejo.org/departments/economic-development/mission….
In response to the business grants, I hope that those who apply and receive grants are verified as actually having a small business and needing assistance. (I grew up in Portland OR, and there have been plenty of scammers up there during the pandemic). Thank you Mission Viejo for helping small businesses in this difficult time!!!
