Keep EmpadaVille Open

Donation protected
Hi, my name is Jessica Rodriguez and I own EmpanadaVille in Mastic Beach, Long Island. EmpanadaVille is an authentic Puerto Rican take out restaurant serving authentic specialties like empanadas, alcapurria, rellenos de papa, sorullos, among many other Puerto Rican staples. We’ve been in business 9 soon it would be 10 years. 2023 has been an extremely rough year for us financially due to the rise in economy. Prices have skyrocketed and we cannot keep changing our prices to keep up with increasing costs. We are slated to close our doors on 12/31/23. We just don’t have the money or the business coming in that is needed to stay open. My last resort to try to get our heads above water and stay open was to create this GoFundMe. If our goal isn’t reached whatever donations made will go towards starting up and running solely catering under EmpanadaVille. Any donation is truly appreciated. If our goal is surpassed then that will allow us to keep our doors open even longer!

Thank you so much for keeping EmpanadaVille alive one way or another!
