Assemblymember Mike Feuer (D-Sherman Oaks)  recently honored Casa Vega as the 42nd District Small Business of the Year.  The award was  presented to restaurant owner Rafael “Ray” Vega as part of the California Small Business Association’s 2009 California Small Business Day in Sacramento.

Since its opening in 1956, Casa Vega, located in Sherman Oaks, has earned its place as a San Fernando Valley landmark serving authentic Vega family recipes in a friendly, festive atmosphere.  Together with his daughter Christina and his cousin Rick, Ray Vega has managed the restaurant for over 50 successful years.

“People come up and say, ‘Thanks for being here,’” says Ray. “But it’s the other way around; I should be thanking them.” Feuer said, “Ray, his family, and the Casa Vega staff exemplify the small businesses that drive our economy, and bring joy to our community. In addition to providing hundreds of jobs and a friendly dining experience, Casa Vega has been a consistent supporter of civic events and institutions – including Chambers of Commerce, local schools, and public safety organizations.  I know I am joined today in honoring Ray by the countless people he has mentored, worked with, and most importantly, fed.”

Assemblymember Feuer represents the California State Assembly’s 42nd District, which includes all or part of the Los Angeles communities of Sherman Oaks, Studio City, North Hollywood, Valley Glen, Valley Village, Toluca Lake, Universal City, Griffith Park, Brentwood, Bel Air, Holmby Hills, Beverly Glen, Westwood, Century City, Hollywood, Fairfax, Hancock Park, Los Feliz, as well as the Cities of Beverly Hills and West Hollywood.
