The Albuquerque Small Business Development Center (“SBDC”) has played a vital role in helping Pop Fizz establish their vision and focus on the frozen treat market in Albuquerque’s South Valley. “The SBDC helped us focus on our direction. When we first started, we needed direction and guidance. They helped us to nail down our main objective: paletas. At our little shop in the South Valley, we were busy doing other things that took away from our main goal. We were able to refocus and look at the bigger picture of future expansion and possibly wholesaling. This guidance of looking toward the future shaped our long-term vision.” said Lorenzo Alvarez.
