Local Officials Find Joy and Positivity in Business Openings

Three new businesses recently opened in Santa Monica, each with their own unique offerings and stories. First up was Oasis Restaurant, located on 1413 5th St. and owned by Mickey Barnes and Brenda Garcia. The restaurant’s vast space was celebrated, and Oasis received a $10,000 donation from Los Angeles Football Club and Pepsi to support black-owned businesses through the Pepsi Dig In initiative.

Two days later, Richard Cao and Hansel Cisneros were recognized for opening Bandit E-Bikes, a bicycle service and repair shop with an impressive inventory of e-bikes. Chamber members and local officials took the bikes for a spin at the Broadway location, with Mayor Phil Brock being among them.

Lastly, on March 28, Coffee Bean & Tea Leaf opened its doors at the Medical Center of Santa Monica at 2021 Santa Monica Blvd., in partnership with Providence Saint John’s Health Center. The Chamber of Commerce, local officials, representatives from the national coffee chain, and store owner Jason Park were all present at the ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate this exciting new addition to the city’s business landscape.
