Do you love Lobster? Well I sure do and I will tell you about another thing that I really, really love and that is Off The Hook Fish Grill. If you are a Whittier local you know about and love the high quality and taste of their amazing seafood. So when I heard that they were getting together with SAGE Restaurant to bring us the 
1st Annual Rock Lobsta Event in Whittier
I was ecstatic!

The My Whittier Podcast is going on it's third year. We have a great time talking about current events happening here in Whittier California. We also interview interesting Whittier locals that have something positive to say or something fun to promote. I thought it would be fun to deliver a show that gave you a comprehensive look at the city of Whittier from a local perspective. That is what we have been doing and we are having a blast!

Whittier Business Center- Whittier's Best Kept Secret

Let me fill you in on Whittier's best kept secret, a diamond in the rough of sorts. I have the key to your success and I am going to give it to you. Ladies and gents I would like to introduce you to the 

Whittier Business Center

Whittier Business Center
12501 Philadelphia St
Whittier, California 90601

Over the past five years I have had the good fortune to talk to so many of you here in the city of Whittier. Many of you are talented, aspiring business people, hard working entrepreneurs looking to take your ideas to the next level. I can totally identify with that. People like you and I need a place to work and create on our own terms. Birds need to flap their wings.

Are You Ready to Take Your Idea to the Next Level?

Offices of all sizes are available. If you are not ready for an office but
need a place to work cubicles are available to rent as well.
When I walked in to the Whittier Business Center and met with owner Hector Alvarado I was really impressed with the layout of the building. It has a corporate feel without the pretentious overtones. The atmosphere is warm and welcoming. Anyone from an entrepreneurial millennial to seasoned business veteran can utilize this amazing space. Hector did a great job and he is a great guy as well.

Conference Room & Training Center Also Available
Stop by and Check it Out

Every aspect of this building can be rented by the hour.
If you need a meeting space WBC has you covered. 
Work Share Space Available

If you need to get some work done I urge you to come down to the WBC and take a look. The amenities here seem to be never ending. I have seen similar business models but none come close to the benefits offered by WBC. Use of fax, copy and printers. Coffee and water available as well. There is a full time business attendant on hand Monday - Friday to assist you with your needs. There is never an issue with parking here as they have their own parking lot making it easy and accessible to you and your very important clientele.     

Clean and professional work environment
WiFi Included! 
Built in Networking Environment

Many of you are conducting seminars of all types. The training center here at the WBC is really, really top notch. If you are looking for a space to conduct your next training or seminar make sure and give them a call. It could be exactly what you have been looking for. My only question was, why didn't I know about this place before?

Great training and seminar space. Conduct your next event here.
I am so stoked to know that the Whittier Business Center is available for people like you and me. I can't afford to rent a whole office building, staff it, turn on the phones and pay the light bill and furnish it! I needed a place where I could go and have the space to create. I can grab a coffee, jump on the WiFi and I am off and running for hours, days or months. I can get more done here in two hours than I can working from home ALL DAY!

This is the ultimate business tool and exactly what you have been looking for. 

I think I am really going to like it here. 

Call Today and let them know My Whittier sent you for additional savings!

Every city you travel to has "A Place", a pizza place, a burger place, a fish taco place, a Mexican food place. You know, "A Place." In today's day and age it is hard to open up a business and have it be, that place. Actually it is almost impossible. The market is flooded with so much of the same ole, same ole. New food fads come and go every single day. But every now and again someone comes along and clears everything off of the table with one swing of the arm. Ladies and gentleman I would like to introduce you to  

Whittier's Sandwich Shop

Owner Nikomi Arroyo has a heart bigger than a Meatball Sandwich!

Owners of Phlight Restaurant Jay and Nikomi Arroyo, along with brother Steven Arroyo; Owner of Escuela Taqueria created the Deli Up. Located on the corner of Painter Ave and Walnut St. honestly, they could not have picked a better location. Established in March of 2016 the Deli Up has managed to give Whittier the feeling it has been here for years. Aesthetically pleasing inside and out the Deli Up is my kind of place.

of this great hometown deli.

We live in a world where fast food is the norm and patience has become a thing of the past. The quality of food has taken a hit and mediocrity has become acceptable. This kind of thinking has left gaps in the food industry and the Deli Up stepped up and filled the sandwich gap right here in Whittier. They have managed to give us a fresh take on a classic deli concept. Slow your roll and take the time to enjoy something made with quality and care. You deserve it.

Hands down the best meatball sandwich in town.
If you don't believe me stop by and try it for yourself.

As mentioned these sandwiches can be ordered to go or for dining in. I recommend taking the time to dine in so you can fully enjoy the Deli Up experience. With so many sandwich, salad & side options to choose from you must stop by and try The Deli Up. Ask for "spicy hots."
