SOMERTON, Ariz. – Roman Cervantes is moving out of Somerton with his family and has to say goodbye to their life’s work, the Taqueria El Amigo restaurant. “It’s sad because it’s my wife’s dream to have this restaurant but now we have to make a move,” said Cervantes.
But Cervantes is making what could be a painful experience into something exciting, with a unique way to part with the place, a raffle. For one-hundred-dollars a ticket the winner could become the owner of the property on Main Street in the heart of Somerton. Cervantes says business in the growing city is great, they just no longer need the responsibility. He valued the taqueria at $300,000, building and land included as it’s been paid off. Cervantes says he’s done the work for you, now all you have to do to make your dream come true is buy a raffle ticket for the one-hundred-dollars and it’s yours! No catch.
