@properties Christie’s International Real Estate:  When was Churros Y Chocolate created?

Churros Y Chocolate:  Churros Y Chocolate was created at the end of 2017.

 @properties Christie’s International Real Estate:  What is the back story to opening Churros Y Chocolate?

 Churros Y Chocolate:  We have worked in the food industry for many years but having a Mexican restaurant is a little complicated because of all the inventory/ingredients involved. Many years ago, my brother-in-law set up a table outside his restaurant for a festival in Chicago and decided to sell churros instead of tacos. He sold a lot of churros that day and he realized that selling churros was much easier than selling tacos, and about 20 years later he invited us to join him and open a place just for churros.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What is your favorite treat from Churros Y Chocolate?

 Churros Y Chocolate:  My favorite treat there is the churro sundae, it’s a great combination with the warm crispy churro dipped in the ice cream.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate: What was the inspiration for Churros Y Chocolate?

Churros Y Chocolate:  The inspiration is rooted in our Mexican traditions. We used to eat churros back in Mexico dipped in hot chocolate as breakfast and dessert. We wanted people to experience this amazing treat.

@properties Christie’s International Real Estate:  What is your favorite part of owning Churros Y Chocolate?

Churros Y Chocolate:  Our favorite part is that we are a family-owned business, and we make a great team. We love to see people enjoying our churros and reading all the reviews and all the positive feedback from our customers is the most rewarding part.
