April Networking Tip:
What do you do when someone you really want to connect with says they've run out of business cards, just give them yours and hope they will get in touch? NO, print up a stack of cards with space to fill in name, email and phone. Have them ready to hand out in just this situation. Want to really make friends? Give them a couple of extra for the rest of the event.

was founded on January 18, 1986. Gerry and Christos Stathatos purchased the assets of a struggling restaurant at 416 N. 76th street in Houston, Texas. They liked the Harrisburg/Wayside neighborhood very much , a mixture of hard working people and small business. This they thought would be a great area for their new business.
The restaurant , renamed Don Carlos Mexican Restaurant and Cantina opened with a new look, and an enhanced menu.
Their business was so successful, that in 1991, they added 1,000 square feet of dining area, increasing seating capacity to 170, while adding 1,500 square feet for a larger kitchen. They then added parking across the street from the restaurant to accommodate the additional business.
Continuing the growth of the company, Don Carlos Inc. acquired their second location at 8385 Broadway, in Houston, Texas in June of 1994. This became a very successful location as well.
In 2001, Don Carlos Mexican Restaurants opened their third location at 6501 Southwest Freeway at Hillcroft in Houston, Texas, and in 2008, the fourth location was opened in Waco, Texas at 4651 Interstate 35 South.
Don Carlos Mexican Restaurants was built on pride and hard work. What separates Don Carlos from others in the restaurant industry, is the quality and attention to detail. Ambiance, Quality, and Service are the focus of this company.
Currently with 4 locations, Gerry and Christos plan to expand in new markets in the near future.
