Benny Torres and Ricardo Montano Partner to Serve Latinos in Hampton Bay

The Latino population has exploded across the Hamptons of LI -- +94.2% in the Town of East Hampton; +140.3% in the Town of Southampton; and +118.9% in the Town of Shelter Island -- so it's no surprise that Latino businesses are growing as well.

Fiesta Auto in Hampton Bays (+154.7%) is one of the new businesses catering to the area's growing Latino community. The entrepreneur is local resident Benny Torres. According to the 27east.com story, the enterprise is unique because it offers a full menu of services -- insurance, tax and legal assistance -- in partnership with Ricardo Montano's law firm Ferruggia and Calisto, LLP.
Seeking a new venture, [Benny] Torres decided in October to open a branch of Fiesta Auto Insurance—a national chain with 74 locations across the United States—close to his Hampton Bays home. The West Montauk Highway location opened in January.
Looking to further bridge the language gap for Latinos by also offering them access to bilingual legal representation, Mr. Torres said he reached out to an old friend, Suffolk County Legislator Ricardo Montano, a partner with the Hauppauge law firm Ferruggia and Calisto, LLP.
