"The Valley SBDC has helped me tremendously be able to execute my dream of starting Conchitas truck with my friend Martha as well as starting my ultimate goal, Conchitas Bakery, and the person that has helped me the most has been Tim Douglas. Tim has done everything he possibly can to make sure that we’re able to succeed. It has been one of the most amazing relationships to see his expertise and what we’re doing and having this come to fruition has been incredible” – Annie DeGrazia, owner of Conchitas Bakery

Conchitas Truck

Annie DeGrazia, owner of Conchitas Truck and now owner of Conchitas Bakery, came to Valley Sierra SBDC for guidance on how to be a successful first time business owner. Annie and her business partner Martha were looking to grow the food trailer business and learn how to make more profit. Annie and Martha got connected with our food truck expert, Tim Douglas. Tim Douglas started on consulting Annie and Martha on how to develop a menu for a food service enterprise. They later were interested in applying for a loan to purchase equipment for the startup business. Tim assisted them with the process of putting together a profit analysis and applying for a FTHF loan. Over the past two years, Conchitas Truck expanded and grew so much that Annie has officially launched what is now Conchitas Bakery in Modesto!
