  • General Mills: "Nature Valley Fruteria Bars"

General Mills is targeting Hispanic households with the launch of "Nature Valley Fruteria" bars featuring whole grain and visible pieces of fruit in very appealing flavors, including strawberry apple and mango strawberry. Snacks and health are two top priorities for General Mills’ top line growth in 2015 Ken Powell, CEO of General Mills said at a conference call with financial analysts last Wednesday. “ … Our No. 1 priority is to accelerate top-line growth,” he said. “We will do that by sharpening our consumer-first mindset with particular focus on four growing consumer groups — the growing middle class in emerging markets, U.S. multicultural families, millennials and consumers over age 55. With these growing consumer groups and our broad portfolio, there are plenty of growth opportunities and our plan is to go out and get them.”

  • Plaza Central

descargaHaving faced several legal obstacles from the city of Arlington, G.L. “Buck” Harris, who acquired roughly one-third of the defunct Six Flags Mall in December 2012, has announced the reopening of the Six Flags as a Hispanic-oriented shopping mall called Plaza Center. The grand opening events will run Aug. 1-15. Harris has already started advertising the mall’s availability on Spanish-language radio stations, after receiving a certificate of occupancy from the city of Arlington that allows him to start conducting business. Many of the spaces are leased to small shop owners. Harris has taken about five store spaces and is reopening them to sell antiques.So far, he has invested about US $10 million in the property, which includes what he paid to buy it from the International Bank of Commerce. Once the mall is profitable he will follow through with plans to donate it to Youth With. A Mission, a Christian volunteer group. Harris does not own all the former mall property. The former Sears store is owned separately; Dillard’s owns its space and operates a clearance center there; and Cinemark still operates a theater.Below a video oh Harris talking about the Hispanic-themed mall opening :
