CEO of M Crowd Restaurant Group – Irving, Texas
When Mico Rodriguez was five years old, he began spending time helping his parents at the El Chico restaurant where they worked, and now, more than forty years later, he affirms his love of the restaurant industry as Chief Executive Officer of Dallas-based, M Crowd Restaurant Group. In 1991, with his hands-on experience and the love of the restaurant industry, he took on his greatest, most life-changing challenge: opening the first Mi Cocina in north Dallas. Growth and expansion were inevitable, and today his M Crowd Restaurant Group operates twenty-two successful restaurants. Rodriguez’ commitment to employees and their families is evident in the national recognition bestowed upon the company. From Tex-Mex to the farthest heights of French cooking, Rodriguez has been a major influence in how and where Dallas residents and visitors eat over the last fifteen years. Mico Rodriguez started helping his parents in the restaurant industry at a very young age, and today he continues to run his business with his partners and the loving support of his family. For his M Crowd Restaurant Group, the hard work and perseverance is something that runs deep in his roots and will hopefully continue to do so for generations.
