There are an estimated 400,000 Hispanics in Michigan, more than half of whom live in metro Detroit. While many work in the service industry, construction, and landscaping, a significant number have also opened food and restaurant businesses in the area. In the last several years, Detroit's hispanic community has seen some of the largest growth in entrepreneurial ventures and job creation, with a roughly 34 percent increase in Hispanic small business development.The Latino Press
