Buena Papa, a North Carolina-based food company, was founded by James and Johanna Windon. They founded the company two years ago with only $18 in their bank account. Today, the food industry generates millions of dollars in annual revenue from three booming restaurant sites in North Carolina, USA.
In July 2021, they opened their first restaurant in Raleigh, offering Colombian, Mexican, Puerto Rican, and American flavors stacked on top of French fries. According to CNBC Make It, the eatery opened after their cleaning business closed because to the COVID-19 outbreak.
The pair entered the restaurant business with no prior expertise. Nonetheless, they spent their $40,000 life savings, leaving only $18. Four weeks later, their fries became viral on TikTok, attracting a large number of consumers.
