Key Deal Facts

Starting in January 2020, Popoca began as a four times weekly popup restaurant within Classic Cars West, a boutique vintage car dealership located in Oakland's Uptown Arts District.
A small team of four, Popoca raised $50k earlier this year, which has helped them with all the legal fees and licensing needed to start the journey of moving into their own space.
