PANNA Cafe Express
It's easy to forget that Apple started in a garage, and that the Virgin Group formed in an old church crypt in England. Following in the tradition of innovative enterprises with humble beginnings, PANNA Cafe Express started as a small cafe and bakery inside a Weston gas station in 2000. In an effort to introduce their local community to exotic Latin flavors, they decided to serve Venezuelan baked goods and foods alongside the traditional coffee shop fare.
That out-of-the-box decision paid off, making the meek cafe a hit with both native Floridians and Venezuelan transplants alike. In fact, it became so popular with South American guests that they began calling the small store by the nickname "la Pana," which Venezuelans use to mean "friend." Those good vibes from the community helped fuel the cafe to expand beyond its gas station trappings and into two other Florida locations, including one inside Marlins Park in Miami.
Today, staffers at PANNA Cafe Expresses whip up everything from American-style hot dogs and Italian subs to Latin-style salchi papas and arepas. Whether stuffing a breakfast pita with Boar's Head bacon or baking up Venezuelan empanadas filled with shredded beef, they use the highest quality, most authentic ingredients possible. To ensure this same level of craftsmanship across the board, they helm their own state-of-the-art production facility, where they prepare food and baked goods under a watchful eye. This USDA-monitored facility holds itself to the highest standards of sanitation and quality, safely meeting the demand for American and Latin treats at all three locations, as well as at supermarkets and chain stores all around the state.
