When Rayme Rossello was first approached via e-mail by the developers of The Source, she declined their invitation to become part of the proposed project in RiNo. "I wrote back, 'No thanks,'" recalls Rossello, because she had her hands full with the restaurant she'd opened a few weeks prior. That restaurant was Comida Cantina in Longmont, the first brick-and-mortar location of the food truck she'd launched two years prior.

"I do good with longterm goals," she says.
And now she's happy she did. Since Comida Cantina opened in the Source at the end of August, business has been "amazing," she says.
