Ricardo Aubel (58) • Plaza Market Warehouse.
“For 30 years I dedicated my life to the world of construction, but one day I reached a point where I said ‘no more’. I wanted to find a fun business, one that was collaborative, where I could have more support. Ground what he did to make it more human. That's why, with my wife, we thought of a grocery store and we bought this minimarket.
That change of direction did me a lot of good. I think it was the right decision because, with this, I can do other activities during the day associated with my profession without much commitment and without the anxiety of meeting a deadline. I feel like somehow the warehouse came to slow me down.
One of the things I like most about the business is that it creates a very close bond with people. I feel that people do not go out of necessity, but with some there is a connection beyond: they open up, talk and tell us things about their lives. Although we are in a neighborhood with a lot of movement, there are always those instances that are very pleasant. They are close topics and it is a warm space”.
