We’ve spoken to Raymunda Carreón before. Since her words last year were of unease surrounding her living situation in Elyria-Swansea, it was a pleasure to catch up with her in a happy place.
The restaurant aims to enable women, many from Central American countries, to “maintain and celebrate their traditions through entrepreneurial ventures.”
Coming in with the know-how to whip up a savory batch of pork green chile, Comal has helped Carreón make a living out of her expertise.
The concept is a partnership with Focus Points, the Elyria-Swansea community center, which Carreón and others from her largely-immigrant neighbors have been actively involved with to better their community and cement their place in it.
