Mariscos el Cochorit is proud to serve some of the freshest seafood and Mexican cuisine you can find in the valley of the sun. Founded by Vicente Sanchez Soqui, the restaurant has been family owned and operated since the beginning; with a menu based on recipes handed down through the generations. Sanchez began working in the restaurant industry nearly 12 years ago, yet his culinary education began as a young child in Guaymas, Mexico. He learned these traditional seafood recipes from his Mother and Grandmother (who happened to be a well-known Chef in the area), and they are now the basis for the menu currently featured at Mariscos el Cochorit. The name “El Cochorit” signifies “beach” in the Yaqui language and is also meant to represent some of the beautiful beaches of Empalme, Sonora Mexico; where Sanchez is originally from. Alongside his wife, Johana Sanchez, the family runs both the restaurant and a food truck (also named El Cochorit) and looks forward to opening a third establishment in the near future. Customers can enjoy live music or a DJ on the weekend, $1 Mini-Coronas during Happy Hour alongside a discounted menu, unique and classic seafood and Mexican dishes, and also viewing of their favorite sports teams on one of the many flat screen tv’s. Take a trip to the beach right in the heart of the desert with an escape to Mariscos el Cochorit today!

Business 101 Tip
As an employer, there are several tax forms that you must file when you hire someone new, that you must file monthly, quarterly, and annually. These reports can be time consuming and confusing, but fortunately most payroll companies handle all of these forms for you. If you handle payroll in-house, it is recommended that you at least have the guidance of a bookkeeper or payroll professional to make sure that you are accurately completing the forms.

Prestamos CDFI’s Technical Assistance Team hosts periodic Roundtables covering an array of topics for entrepreneurs. The first in 2017 covered how to distinguish between a W2 and 1099; ensuring we really know when we have an employee or when we have a contractor. We also reviewed important changes that took effect in January 2017 with Prop 206 that increased the minimum wage. Our second half focused on how to photograph for Social Media, and tips to create your own infographics and designs online, most for free! Contact your TA Team for more information on upcoming Roundtables; these are open and free to our entire community!
