Raleigh, NC, restaurateur, Randy Hernandez is no stranger to the Wake Forest restaurant community. His family started Tropical Picken' Chicken and the Empanada Factory before selling those businesses. Now Hernandez said his family is returning to Wake Forest with a new venture, Casa Cubana and Rum Bar, a restaurant and bar offering the tastes of Authentic Cuban Cuisine.
Located in the former former "Lost Cajun" building on Forest Pines Drive, Hernandez has given to giving new life to the area's culinary choices.
"I've been looking to come back into the community, but the Wake Forest area is really tight," Hernandez said. "There's nothing really available unless you're going to start it from scratch. So this was a great opportunity."
