We had the good fortune of connecting with Yazmin/Yesenia Huerta/Huerta and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Yazmin/Yesenia, we’d love to hear more about how you thought about starting your own business?
We were tired of working our 9-5 jobs and building someone else’s legacy. We knew that we had something special when people would tell us that we would always bring a good atmosphere to wherever we appeared. Making people happy has always been something we loved doing. We were part of the night life scene for a while and that is when it dawned on us. Why not start providing our services to events. We did have a meeting where we sat down and got down to business. That day we agreed on our name, bar, logo outline, uniforms, menu and social media platforms. And that was just the start of our journey with Dallas Cocktails & Co.

   

Can you open up a bit about your work and career? We’re big fans and we’d love for our community to learn more about your work.
We are a mobile bartending business that will elevate any event we show up to. Like we do like to say “You set the occasion, we set the bar!” Our cocktails are known due to our attention to detail and consistency in their delicious taste. We are so excited for our future private events and future collaborations with other entrepreneurs and brands. Keep in mind it is hard work but perseverance is key. Overcoming obstacles day after day conditions you to make it a habit that will bring you success. Setting small goals is really important to not burn out. Make sure you celebrate the small wins!

Any places to eat or things to do that you can share with our readers? If they have a friend visiting town, what are some spots they could take them to?
Dallas is really big and has many hidden gems so it would be an exciting week. We would first start of by going to a brunch at Yellow Rosa that has the best chilaquiles and finish it up with some mimosas. Once there we can go get forever bracelets at Nina Berenato’s store. You can always go to wash down the food and enjoy some mini golf and games at Another Round. If we’re feeling like relaxing the next day we can go to the joule and reserve a cabana to have a pool day. End of the night with a nice view of Dallas and some delicious stake at Perry’s. If you are feeling like learning new things you can always go to have a fun and interactive experience at the Perot Museum of Nature & Science. Don’t forget the Argentinian Bakery located a little outside of Dallas with the best empanadas and authentic deserts. Does are some spots we would recommend but there for sure is many more that we are still finding after living in the DFW area most of our lives.

The Shoutout series is all about recognizing that our success and where we are in life is at least somewhat thanks to the efforts, support, mentorship, love and encouragement of others. So is there someone that you want to dedicate your shoutout to?
Abigail Mendoza also known as @DallasxFaces was our number one supporter since the start. She was our first entrepreneur friend and she really paved the road for us. From giving us moral support and stearin us in the right direction. To creating our iconic logo. We could have also never done this without our families support. The constructive criticism was very much appreciated and helped us elevate our buisness to where we are today.
