Marshall Street in Norristown is a corridor filled with restaurants and stores that reflect the growing Hispanic population of the area.
Obed Arango, a professor of Socio-Anthropology at Montgomery County Community College, moved permanently to the area in 2006 after working as a professor at University Nationale in Mexico. He told The Times Herald the transformation of West Marshall Street was a sign that the Hispanic community was becoming a force for economic revitalization in the municipality.
“I was very happy to see the immigrant and growing Hispanic population were becoming a positive force for the town — revitalizing the economy. The transformation of Marshall and Main Streets go hand in hand with the economic development of those small businesses.”
According a recent article in USA Today, Latino small business owners are the fastest-growing group of entrepreneurs in the U.S.
