A Sioux Falls businessman plans to open a Hispanic mini market and taco shop in the former Pizza Ranch space on Wind Street.
Adan Arteaga, who owns Manna Bakery and MCA Market in Sioux Falls, wants to be open in Flandreau in September. His business, Los Laureles Authentic Hispanic Food, will sell food, beer and have a taco shop, said Isaias Randel, who helps with the businesses.
Arteaga is waiting for equipment to get hooked up. “We’re excited to get that open,” Randel said.
Arteaga also has applied with the city for a license to sell on-sale and off-sale beer and South Dakota wine. The city has recommended approval of that license.
Arteaga has been in business since 2006 in Sioux Falls.
The business is one of several Hispanic-based shops that have opened on the west side of Wind Street.
Fajita’s Bar & Grill opened this year at 114 N. Wind St. as a full-service restaurant and bar. It recently added breakfast burritos from 9 a.m. to 11 a.m. and street tacos from 9 p.m. to midnight to its menu.
Fajita’s also hosts special events for the community, including painting classes this summer.
Kiko’s, a restaurant which opened late last year between the Fajita’s and Los Laureles properties, appears to have closed, although the front of it was recently painted.
