Where are you from originally and how long have you lived (or worked) in the Houston/Sugar Land area?
Originally from Bogota, Colombia, I moved to the States in the year 2000 and lived in different States but I am a proud Houston citizen since 2012.
I’m a lucky father of two girls Kamila and Sara and two pets, Charlie our rescue cat and Bruno our crazy Basset Hound dog.
One thing about living or working here that has surprised you the most?
I think the opportunities in this city are incredible, I’ve seen the city grow and get better every year which opens even more opportunities.
Can you provide me with a description of your business?
Majestkids is an Indoor Playground for families with kids between 6 months to 12 year old. The park offers play structures for active play; we have two different sections one for little ones and one for our older and faster kids. We host Birthday Parties, fundraisers, family events and more. We also we have a full cafe with healthy food options for all ages.
How long have you been in business?
We opened to the public in November 2015. So this November will be 4 years.
What made you decide to be an entrepreneur and open your own business?
I think a lot of people at one point want to be their own boss, (which is a lot more work) but I was ready for the challenge and I found a business that I consider is great for families and the community.
What do you enjoy the most about running a business?
There is a lot of good things but if I have to name the most, I would say to meet families and make business partners a long the journey.
Have you always been entrepreneurial and a risk-taker?
I don’t think I have always been entrepreneurial. When I was younger I was all about fun, but a risk taker yes! Later on I discovered I needed money to have fun.
What did you used to do before you opened your own business?
As an immigrant I did a lot of different jobs during my first years in the country, but my latest job was with a Grocery Store Chain.
Why is your place of business different from the rest?
Majestkids is a mix of little details that I found great for the kids and details that other places didn’t have, we really just wanted to be different.
Favorite restaurant to eat at in Sugar Land?
That is a hard question; I think I can always enjoy Guru Burgers.
How do you unwind after a long week of work?
We open on the weekends so there is not too much time to rest but a good motorcycle ride can recharge the soul, it always work for me.
What would be one fun fact that would surprise people about you?
Some people don’t consider being scare fun, but I still enjoy scaring people and spectators always laugh.
