ALBANY, GA (WALB) – Despite the tough economy, a lot of people continue to pursue their dreams of business ownership.

One new venture brings a taste of Cuba to South Georgia. The Little Havana Cuban Restaurant opened January 6th on North Westover Boulevard.

Co-owner Jason Alicea says they're not too concerned about opening up in an uncertain business climate because they're offering quality Latin food--a unique product in Albany.

"There's no food like this anywhere near here. This food here, once you taste it, you're guaranteed to come back, guaranteed to come back," said Alicea.

 So far people are taking notice. They've been packed for lunch. They hope to start serving breakfast soon.
