Puerto Rico Approaches A New Fiscal Year With Mounting Debt, Rising Taxes, Fewer Public Services

After Sarahi Alicea and her husband, Hector Carrasquillo, visited family in Buffalo, New York, in 2012, the couple decided it was time to shut down their struggling home-based restaurant business in Fajardo, Puerto Rico, and start over on the mainland.

“My husband and I wanted a better life,” Alicea said. “I noticed when we were visiting family that there wasn’t a food truck serving Spanish Puerto Rican food. We decided this would be a good business to bring to Buffalo.”
