Small Business Success: Tantardini's
Diego Tantardini has a long history baking, starting in Milan, Italy when he was just 15 years old. His wife and two children came to the United States in 2012 for school, with the plan to go back to Italy in a few years time. They quickly discovered they felt at home in Redding, California, and decided to stay.

Read how SCORE helped Diego successfully open his restaurant in California.
