CD 9 Shines a Light on New Business “Baby J’s Burgers”

Earlier this week, I had the honor of visiting and meeting with the owner of Baby J's Burgers—a new South LA restaurant located at the corner of 25th Street and Central Avenue. Here, Chef Jason “Baby J” Harley takes much pride in his work by bringing fresh, gourmet and high-quality ingredients into his food. If you haven't already, come to the Ninth District and take your pick of a range of tasty foods, including savory burgers, loaded-fries and salted caramel brownie milkshakes. 

Supporting small and local businesses is of the utmost importance to my Office. Years ago, I established the CD 9 Business Resource Center (BRC) inside my Constituent Service Center to assist entrepreneurs and business owners gain access to business development tools, services and training. We also develop several programs and events year-round designed to nurture the growth of for-profit companies, community based organizations, faith-based and non-profit organizations. For more information, please call my District Office at (323) 846-2651.

Good luck on your continued success Baby J's!
