La Placita Restaurant CHAMBER MEMBER

Jesse & Angie opened La Placita in 1988. With great leadership & help from their siblings, parents, children, friends, nieces & nephews and eventually their grandkids too; La Placita became a great place to have a delicious meal & get together with family & friends. Currently you will find their son, daughter, grandson, nephew & great-nephew at La Placita. Most of our staff have a family member or two who also work there; making it a really fun place to be. We also get to serve the OV Rotary Club on Friday mornings. We are so lucky & very blessed to be part of this amazing community! If you go to La Placita, odds are you will run into some one you know. Thank you for the opportunity to serve you for three amazing decades. THANK YOU for the honor of being nominated for one of the best of Orangevale 🫶🏼

Dezy's Beef, Bread and Beer CHAMBER MEMBER

Dezy is the Founder and CEO of Dezy’s Beef, Bread, and Beer. He is a native of Iran, a United States citizen, and a highly decorated United States Army infantry veteran who is fluent in Persian (both Iranian and Afghan dialects), English, and spoken Tadjik/Tajik. Prior to his arrival in the Us, Dezy worked as an Embassy Liaison for the Swiss Embassy US Interest Section in Tehran, which allowed him to cultivate a comprehensive knowledge of intelligence laws, regulations, and policies. He worked at the Defense Language Institute Monterey, CA and held various positions throughout the organization’s Persian-Farsi School. In 2019 Dezy returned from his successful federal service career and came to Orangevale to start a new chapter of his life opening “Dezy’s Market”. It was here that the community embraced not only Dezy but his famous Sangak bread which fondly became known as “Dezy bread”. It is one of a kind in Northern California and people come from all over to buy it! Dezy is happy to expand his operations to a new location now offering his famous bread, delicious kabobs, beers and more!
