That is especially true among the wineries and restaurants in Sonoma County.

Despite a warm spring day, Kivelstadt Cellars & Wine Garden in Sonoma was closed Monday. The owner said it was not by choice.

“We were planning to be open seven days a week by this time of year,” said Jordan Kivelstadt.

in Solano County 87 views

COVID-19 has made the past year a struggle for all small-business owners, but it has had a particularly negative impact on Black-owned businesses, many of which have had to close permanently.

The Solano Small Business Development Center wants to help those business owners be able to rebuild or recoup their financial losses. The agency is part of the Northern California Small Business Development Center, which has just launched the Inclusivity Project.

The project, according to a Solano SBDC news release, provides free training opportunities and advice from experts. It also seeks to secure $100 million in funding for 1,000 Black-owned businesses in the area.

According to Solano SBDC statistics, there were more than 1 million recorded Black businesses in the United States in Feb. 2020. However, by the middle of April — a month after the federal stay-at-home order was issued in response to the virus — 40 percent of those businesses were estimated to have closed their doors for good.

Take a stroll down the 100, 200 and first part of the 300 blocks of East Yosemite Avenue.

This is where you will see the future of downtown Manteca driven not by consultants, planners, and those that want to imprint on the Family City what has popped up in revitalized suburban Bay Arras downtowns such as Pleasanton and Livermore.

There is a thriving market, Super Altena that does a brisk business in staples as well as ready-to-eat Mexican food to go. Across the parking lot in the former hole-in-the-wall A&W drive-in that for years housed a Thai restaurant there are plans to open the seafood restaurant dubbed Las Delos Camaromes. Next door is the United Paleteria y Neveria ice cream shop. Almost directly across the street is Panderia La Laurita, a Mexican bakery that has been in business for more than two decades.

This is also where you will find other dining spots such as Hats & Boots as well as the Iron Horse Deli. Specialty stores include Rocky Mountain Chocolate, Fashion Health Care Apparel, German and German Glas Werks. Also gracing the street the 2½ blocks are American Furniture, Spin Cycle, Leonard Photography Bank of America, Financial Center Credit Union and the American Legion Hall.

in Solano County 75 views

The team at Placer Title Company are at the top of their field as part of the Mother Lode Holding Company, one of the largest independent land title companies in the country.

Placer Title Company experts are licensed to do business in all 58 California counties through nearly 50 office locations, providing real estate title and escrow services around the state. The company values open communication, attention to detail and hard work because that’s what people should expect from great customer care.

Exceeding the expectations of our customers during their experience with us is the norm, not the exception,” company representative Joey Lafon says.

Leo French founded Placer Title Company in 1973. He has since died.

The focus of the business is the manifestation of French’s dream. His mission was to put together a team “who really care about each other,” and, in turn, care about the customers that they helped every day. That dedication has propelled Placer Title to the top of the title and escrow industry, “and we’re committed to doing everything we can to stay there,” Lafon says.

They have thus far done so, according to Daily Republic readers who selected Placer Title Company as the Best Title Company in Solano County in the 2021 Readers’ Choice survey.
