Vesper Public Relations. Los Angeles, CA. (October 2020) –El Sushi Loco, named “Best Mexican Sushi” by LA Weekly, was recently featured on Tastemade’s Dave’s Killer Bread Foundation’s (DKBF) Second Chances stories – a video series produced by Tastemade that highlights chefs who have found success despite going thru challenging times.

The stories are sponsored by the Dave’s Killer Bread Foundation, which was established by Dave’s Killer Bread to help provide more second chance employment opportunities.

El Sushi Loco CEO & Head Chef Frank Mendoza strongly empathizes with the struggles that persons with past  histories experience when seeking employment. The Tastemade video features El Sushi Loco’s CEO & Head Chef Frank Mendoza talking about how he overcame the odds against him to begin a successful Mexican-Asian fusion restaurant business.

Frank Mendoza remarks, “We’re a place of second chances because, how could we not? I was down and out at one point, and somebody gave me a chance.”

For the Second Chances campaign video, Frank Mendoza has created a tasty new dish for El Sushi Loco’s menu – the Crispy Chicken Burger. The dish begins with diced chicken breaded with crumbs made fresh from Dave’s Killer Bread Burger Buns, fried to a golden brown, then served on butter baked Dave’s Killer Bread Burger Buns covered with avocado, tortilla strips, and El Sushi Loco’s Mexican/Asian fusion sauces.

Frank Mendoza’s second chance story and many more inspirational cooking videos sponsored by DKBF can be found on the Tastemade Instagram and YouTube channels.

About Dave’s Killer Bread Foundation

The Dave’s Killer Bread Foundation was created to power second chance employment. A lack of information or understanding about employing people with criminal backgrounds can make businesses hesitant to explore this option, and the DKBF is here to change that. DKBF believes that in the long term, second chance employment has the power to reduce the negative impact of recidivism in America, and the foundation works to educate organizations on the importance of employing this part of our population.

El Sushi Loco History

In 2010, Frank Mendoza purchased a street vendor food cart off a Craigslist ad in Tijuana, Mexico for $1200 and began selling his unique cuisine in the streets of Los Angeles, CA. In its food-cart days, the Mexican-Asian fusion food concept was called Sushi Island and Frank Mendoza, his wife, and his nephew developed the brand tirelessly, serving high quality Mexican sushi and mariscos. The success of Sushi Island further fueled Mendoza’s desire, and he renamed the business El Sushi Loco. 2011 saw the opening of their first brick and mortar restaurant in La Puente, CA. Soon after, they opened another branch in Downey, and most recently Mendoza opened his third restaurant in Pomona, CA.
