Home News and Updates WAPA Café

WAPA Café is a family affair. It’s a place for families to meet, laughter to echo, and regulars to convene. But, even with the help of a supportive family, a growing business sometimes needs assistance.

Owner Leo Contreras works hard and smart by using as much of the technical assistance resources available to him to build strong ties to the community and the District.

WAPA Café, on Georgia Avenue, has used Emory Beacon of Light, Inc. for assistance with business assessments, marketing and social media strategy development, grant application review, and assistance in developing relationships with government agencies vested in District small business development.

Emory Beacon of Light, Inc. provides technical assistance to the small businesses in the Brightwood Community, primarily the corridors of Georgia Avenue and Kennedy Street. They help Leo and others like him in the business community develop their brand — from paperwork and plans, to preparing for growth.
