North Stafford graduate opening Mexican restaurant

A 2010 graduate of North Stafford High School plans to open a Mexican restaurant in Orange County next month.

Erik Garcia-Vazquez said he hopes to open Los Agaves Mexican Restaurant at 12399 James Madison Highway on or about Oct. 8.

Garcia-Vazquez, 22, was born in Mexico City and moved to the United States with his family when he was 3. He has lived in Virginia since 2000.

Garcia-Vazquez said he worked at a Mexican restaurant in Stafford while in high school and attended Northern Virginia Community College to get a business management and culinary degree.

“Opening a business has been my dream since I decided to take on the culinary/business world,” Garcia-Vazquez wrote in an email.
