In 1964 , with Cuba in the grips of Castro's
Communist regime and their business confiscated by the government, the first of the
Gracia brothers headed to Miami to start a new life. As was the case for so many other exiles during that time, day and night, the brothers fished and worked for local companies with the hope to save enough money to one day start their own seafood business in Miami.
Then in 1966, that dream became a reality when Garcia's Brothers Seafood was established. Initially a fresh fish market, processing plant, and wholesaler, the Garcias saw their business thrive thanks to their fresh catch, hard work, and dedication. Setting their sites higher, they then started Garcia's Seafood Market & Grille which today, 48 years later, is still proudly operated by mami and her sons.
