Eve Rodriguez Montoya is the founder and president of Rodriguez Media Communications LLC, a firm established to assist clients looking to expand their brand, product, mission or service in the Latino market and beyond. One of her key clients is her family’s business, the Dulcelandia Candy Store brand.
One of Rodriguez Montoya’s most recent efforts was to expand the Dulcelandia Candy Store brand, a long-standing family-owned Latino market staple, by creating a new line of healthy latino-flavored frozen yogurt and establishing Yogolandia Yogurt and Botana Bar inside of Dulcelandia in Chicago’s Little Village neighborhood. The new brand initiative, off to an impressive start by any standards, offers unique flavors known as Yogo, frozen yogurt with a Mexican Twist!
