Build a community, not an empire.
What happens when you scale your seafood business? You face pressure to meet new volume demands with sourcing decisions that may go against the values you set out with. Slowly but surely your mission absorbs into the conventional distribution system and you become 'just another seafood company'. Algrano says "Resist and Rebel!" - take no investors, support global sourcing for local supplying, build a community not an empire. The trade off? We will be limited to grow only within our means as a small independent local business. We're OK with that.
