Do you have a list of Hispanic retailers, discount houses, movie
theatres, clothing stores, furniture stores, appliance stores, music
stores, shoe stores, restaurants etc. I would like the contact
addresses, e-mails or fax, name of the principals, telephone numbers
etc. These can be located in Mexico or in California (Los Angeles
area).

glenpark-ga,

I know of one site that specializes in information on and for Hispanic
companies.  They have a directory of thousands of companies across the
US, including more than 1,000 in California.

The companies listed tend to be business-to-business type of
operations, although a fair number of retail and service businesses
are listed as well.

For instance, the first ten entries for Hispanic companies in California are:

1. Alvaco, Inc.  CA Los Angeles 
2. Right Hand Manufacturing, Inc.  CA Chula Vista 
3. The Wireless Store  CA Los Angeles 
4. Tijiboy & Associates  CA Palo Alto 
5. A & D Music Inc.  CA Laguna Hills 
6. International Village Gallery  CA Woodside 
7. Sports Link International  CA Los Angeles 
8. Pro Exhibits & Associates  CA Riverside 
9. BBN of California  CA Downey 
10. Arandia-rodriguez & associates  CA Universal City 


Each company listed can be clicked on for a full record, such as:


-----
The Wireless Store

Address: 350 South Broadway 
Los Angeles, CA 90013  
Phone: 213-626-1700 
Email: lauraramirez71@yahoo.com 

Primary Contact 
Name: Laura Ramirez 
Title: Owner 

Year Established: 2005 
Average Number of Employees: 3 
Legal Structure: Sole Propietorship 

Owner Information 
US Citizen: Yes  
Minority: Hispanic American 

Products & Services 
Capabilities:
Cellular phones, contracts, wireless accessories  
-----


Does this sort of list meet your needs?  Let me know, please.

What I am trying to accomplish is to acqire names/contacts for
retailers also theatres that cater to hispanics. The purpose is to
either lease them space or do build-to suits. I would prefer larger
operations rather than a retailer that has 2 or three employees.
Nevertheless it sounds as though the one site that you have might
work.

Is there any such site that also mentions large retailers in Mexico?
Could you also provide hispanic population of cities in Southern
California.

If not then I am satisfied with the site.

thank you.

glenpark-ga,


Thanks for the feedback to my earlier post.


I'm going to provide you instructions for using several online
directories that -- together -- should go a long way towards providing
the type of information you are seeking for contacts in California, or
in other states of interest to you.   Resources on Mexico are probably
best left to a separate question, and would probably best be answered
by a researcher that speaks Spanish (I know only un poco, I'm afraid).


The resource I referred to earlier is the very useful business lookup
service at the RedWire page of HispanicBusiness.com:


http://www.hispanicbusiness.com/redwire/


Just click on the "Search Companies" button to get started.  You'll
come to a search page with several options for finding companies
(company name, city, state, keywords, etc.  You may want to start
simply by selecting California to get an overview of the entire list.

You can always refine your search later by, e.g., selecting an
individual city such as Los Angeles.  You can also search on keywords,
but I found this overly restrictive myself, and an approach that did
not produce very satisfying results.  As I said, a search for all
companies in California produces a list of well over 1,000 businesses.

You'll notice there is also an option for searching on International
businesses here, but I did not see very many listings for Mexico when
I tried it.




Another valuable resource is the Los Angeles-area business directory
of the Latin Business Association:


http://directory.lbausa.com/


Again, there are a variety of search methods available here, ranging
from a specific company name, to broad-based keyword searches.



The Latin business Association is only one of many Associations and
Chambers of Commerce in California that focus on Latino businesses. 
You can find a list of similar organizations throughout California at:


http://www.cahcc.com/Regions.htm
California Hispanic Chambers of Commerce


and throughout the US here:


http://www.hispanicbusiness.com/organizations/
Hispanic Chambers & Professional Organizations 




Also at the Hispanic Business site, you might want to take specific
note of this article:


http://www.hispanicbusiness.com/news/newsbyid.asp?id=17945


about: 

íViva Tu Cine!: New Spanish-language film series coming to Los Angeles 


The article lists many of the theaters in the Los Angeles that hosted the films.  




Lastly, you asked about Hispanic population figures, so here is a link
to a great resource at the US Census Bureau:


http://quickfacts.census.gov/qfd/states/06/0644000.html
Los Angeles 


This particular link shows the Hispanic breakout for Los Angeles:


"Persons of Hispanic or Latino origin, percent, 2000 -- 46.5%" 


but towards the top of the page, you can select any city of your
choosing to see similar statistics elsewhere in California.



I trust this information fully answers your question.  However, please
don't rate this answer until you have everything you need.  If you
would like any additional information, just post a Request for
Clarification to let me know how I can assist you further, and I'm at
your service.

All the best,

pafalafa-ga
