Art’s Skillet founder Arturo (Art) Ugalde felt he had the experience to be a restauranteur after spending over 22 years in the industry. He just needed a push in the right direction to give his entrepreneurial spirit a start. That push came on Black Friday in 2012 when the economy picked him to join the unemployed. With support from friends and family members he decided that it was a message to do what he always wanted to do – provide an appetizing, fast, casual breakfast, and lunch experience, to patrons, at a great value. That was the beginning of Art’s Skillet. He hopes that you and your friends will be as inspired by this restaurant as he is. When you see Art working in his restaurant, give him a pat on the back. He is making the American dream come true one wonderful plate of food at a time.
