New Chamber Member Opens Alturas Business

On November 21st, members from the Alturas Chamber of Commerce showed up for the ribbon-cutting ceremony to welcome their newest Chamber member, Pena's Mexican Grill, during their "open house" celebration in the Bear Creek Mall in Alturas.

Owner, Cynthia Pena, was born and raised in Alturas and is currently living in Marysville, CA with her husband and four lovely children.  For the past 8 years, Cynthia has owned and operated Pena Insurance and Tax Service where she claims to have over 2500 tax clients and 20 bookkeeping and payroll clients.

Her main ambition is to someday return to Alturas with her husband and children to once again establish her roots where some of her family and friends still reside as of today.

"My family wanted to bring authentic Mexican food to Modoc County and share special recipes with everyone to keep my parents' name and spirit alive in the town that they are both laid to rest," Cynthia said.  "As a matter of fact, the telephone number of their residence which they had for many years is now the telephone number of Pena's Mexican Grill," she further stated.

The reality of starting up a restaurant business came from a lot of help from a couple of her siblings, Cece Toaetolu and David Pena, and even some of her nieces and nephews were involved in the decision making process.  Her appreciation towards them is far more than what words can describe.  All she could say was, "all of their help combined made this idea become a reality." 

Cynthia and her family are seen in the picture (right) during the ribbon-cutting ceremony.  Good luck Cynthia and thank you for becoming a member of the Alturas Chamber of Commerce.
