José Named EY Master Entrepreneur of the Year

August 2015

“I am so honored to be a part of this talented group of entrepreneurs,” José told the crowd at the EY Awards Gala this past June as he accepted the EY Master Entrepreneur of the Year award for the Greater Washington area. “We are all leaders in our respective industries and we each hold the responsibility to help this city receive the recognition it deserves. Together, we can continue to make Washington, DC and its neighboring communities great.”

The award recognizes outstanding entrepreneurs who merit special recognition for their leadership by example and the impact they make on the global business community. Following a beautiful video tribute to José produced by the EY team (shown above), José accepted the award and rallied fellow entrepreneurs in the room to use their achievements in a powerful way, adding “I would not be where I am today without my team. I am so incredibly proud of them and all of their hard work. We have big dreams, but through our work I am confident that food can be an agent of change for the good.”
