Groupacho, the newest innovator in the burgeoning daily deals market, is launching its website today, offering discounts on L.A.’s hottest restaurants, clubs, retail shops, and events. Groupacho will focus on deals that reflect the lifestyle of Latino families in Los Angeles. In its debut week, Groupacho has partnered with La Fonda Restaurant and EZ Lube to showcase the quality and diversity of its deals.

“Groupacho aims to highlight the Latin flavor of Los Angeles with its rich culture, taste and social lifestyle,” said President and Founder David Barr. “No matter whom you are and where you live in Los Angeles, you will discover our city’s wonderful Latin heritage and welcoming spirit through Groupacho deals. We invite everyone to join our site as we’ll be scouring the city for the hippest and most authentic Latin scenes to deliver big savings on the best local merchants.”

Deal-a-day websites such as Groupacho have changed local advertising, delivering faster results than other marketing methods. Retailers receive immediate revenue and can see exactly how many customers an offer generates. It’s a new category of commerce that has changed how companies from hair salons to car washes market their products and services.

Groupacho benefits businesses that want to increase their customer base and reach out to the fast growing Hispanic consumer market. In the U.S., the Hispanic population has grown 43% since 2000 to more than 50 million, and Los Angeles boasts the largest Hispanic community in the country. Latinos represent 47.1 percent of the total population in L.A. alone.  

“There are nearly 30 million Hispanics online, representing at least 60% of the total Hispanic population. We look forward to bringing these online shoppers unbeatable deals from top local businesses, while creating new revenue streams for area merchants by tapping into the large Hispanic population,” Barr said.

Groupacho’s site will launch in English with the aim of reaching a bicultural, bilingual consumer. The company will also be sponsoring kick-off events throughout the metropolitan area in the coming months starting with a launch party at La Fonda on June 25th.  Other upcoming events include co-sponsored events with future featured merchants and an appearance at the Columbian Festival on July 17th at the Pico Rivera Sports Arena.

“We are proud to partner with Groupacho to share with consumers a chance to enjoy the ultimate Mexican experience at the first restaurant in the country to showcase a live Mariachi dinner show.  La Fonda is the perfect destination for any celebration; indulge with exquisite food, delicious signature cocktails incorporated with a world-renowned Mariachi performance by Mariachi Los Reyes! While enjoying your Groupacho discount, ” said La Fonda Owner Jimmy Roca.

Maple Cream Easter Eggs

by Femme Fraîche March 20, 2016

Maple Cream Easter EggsEvery year when I was a kid, I could count on two things in my Easter basket – marshmallow eggs and maple cream eggs. Each served different purposes. The maple cream Easter eggs were my favorites and what I squealed over even more than finding plastic hidden eggs that held a dollar bill or a tiny toy. The marshmallow eggs were nothing I ever fancied and always found their way into the freezer for...

Salsa Casera Recipe – Super Hot and Delicious

by Stephen Chavez March 12, 2016

Salsa Casera or House Salsa is one of the simplest and most flavorful salsas that brings a robust heat and a smokey flavor from the charred tomatoes and chile peppers. Beware! I like heat and so this recipe has one dried Scorpion pepper added to the mix. Scorpion peppers are one of the hottest chiles in the world, with a mean heat of more than 1.2 million Scoville heat units (SHUs).

These days, one of my biggest dilemmas is finding what to feed myself in the mornings that is convenient, nourishing, and so tasty I’ll be psyched to eat it a few days a week. This...
