Carlos Aldana is the owner of Delicias y Punto. Carlos prepares Colombian delicacies and finger foods, which he sells to area restaurants. He has been in business for five years. He produces the food at his factory in Sunset Park, Brooklyn.

Carlos’ family has been in the tamal business since he was a child in Colombia, where his family supported themselves as food vendors.  Before emigrating to the United States, Carlos also worked in a bakery. Upon arriving in New York, Carlos was impressed with the city’s appreciation for Latin food, but was shocked by the shortage of Colombian options. He decided that a need to promote the food of his region Ibagué was in order.

Carlos’ food pays homage to the Ibagué region. His specialty is the tamal tolimense which is popular at Christmastime in Colombia and originates in his hometown.  Thanks to Carlos, his homesick fellow Colombians don’t need to travel for a taste of home. He also introduces new people to these delicacies—from Ibagué to the world!

Carlos has the heart of a chef, and the mind of an astute businessman. Instead of having a restaurant, he decided to open a factory and sell to restaurants.  This allows him a wider reach for his products, while maintaining a lower overhead. He has 6 part-time employees and 2 full-time employees.

Carlos’ involvement with Project Enterprise includes serving as an active member of the Spanish-speaking Center which meets in the South Bronx.  His fellow Center members say, “Carlos is a true leader and motivator in our Center. He wants all of us to succeed.”
