Luis Paucar embodies the American Dream. He came to the United States with a vision of becoming a successful entrepreneur. Through hard work and dedication, he turned that dream into a reality.
Upon his arrival from Ecuador, he secured his status as a permanent resident and put his entrepreneurial skills to work. While succeeding in business as a grocery store owner in south Minneapolis, he saw an opportunity to provide affordable transportation to individuals often ignored by the existing taxicab cartel. In particular, he sought to fill an important niche by offering dispatchers as well as drivers that are fluent in Spanish. In October 2003, Luis created A New Star Limousine and Taxi Service, Inc. He began the company from a basement office near his corner grocery.
