We risked it all for the Arepas! In 2014, my brother Andres and I had the desire to start a business of our own. I was still living in Monterrey, Mexico at the time and Andres was working in a restaurants part time here in Austin, TX.
In 2015, we bought our first food truck! It quickly became an entire family affair. My mom was a huge part of Four Brothers. Without her authentic Venezuelan recipes, we would not exist today. Her recipes partnered with my sister Patty's design skills, my other sister Caro's operations skills, Andres' food service skills, and my desire to run a business -- Four Brothers was born.
Today, we do this in honor of my mom that went to her eternal home in August of 2021. Our goal is to elevate the presence of Venezuelan food here in Austin, and then to the nation. Together, as a family.
