CINCO DE MAYO
York County is different than what Jonathan Hernandez expected. Back in 2007, his whole family was preparing to move here from the sprawling San Fernando Valley outside Los Angeles. Jonathan’s aunt, Eluzay Adan, who was already living in the County, had described it as a “small town.”
“I was picturing a gas station and a little grocery store,” he said. “It was a big surprise when I got here."
Not only did the area exceed his expectations, but he also found happiness in his new role as a restauranteur. Jonathan and his brother-in-law, Julio Victoria, co-manage Cinco de Mayo, which the Hernandez-Victoria family purchased from its previous owners after Jonathan’s aunt found out they were looking to sell. Jonathan had previously worked at a pizzeria, and Julio had been in the restaurant business all his life.
“We all like working here, so it’s not like going to a job where you don’t want to be. It feels like we’re just going to meet friends.”
