MIHO Gastrotruck provides locally sourced, natural, healthy, good food. Co-owners Kevin Ho and Juan Miron met while working in the restaurant industry and shared a passion for gathering friends and family around good food and so launched their business in the spring of 2010. One of the biggest hurdles they crossed was financing. They weren’t successful in securing financing through traditional means and were referred to Accion San Diego who lent them $15,000 to buy and fix up an old lunch truck.
“Finding Accion was a huge break for us because it really enabled us to go for it as new business owners,” says Kevin Ho.
In less than two years, MIHO has expanded to two trucks and a full catering service. They now employ up to 17 people in the peak summer season. They’ve built up a large and dedicated customer base with almost 10,000 Twitter followers they affectionately call HOMI’s.
