What started out as a small Cuban sandwich shop based out of a self-constructed tiny house in Sandy Springs two years ago, has now expanded to two other metro Atlanta locations, with a fourth location opening at the end of May in Marietta.
Cubanos ATL owner Ozzy Llanes plans to begin serving his popular Cuban sandwiches from Belen De La Cruz Empanadas and Pastries, starting May 25. Both Llanes and Argentinean empanada and pastry shop owner Belen De La Cruz have stalls at Chattahoochee Food Works in Atlanta. The duo first met in 2020 while opening their respective first locations, developing a friendship after opening stalls at the Underwood Hills food hall.
“Earlier this year, I began looking for a retail restaurant space in the Marietta area and quickly learned that retail vacancy in metro Atlanta has become limited and rents are expensive,” Llanes says in the press release, adding that high labor and food costs caused him to “get creative” for his next location.
Llanes and De La Cruz will share operating expenses and kitchen and counter space at the Marietta shop to help keep costs manageable. “It’s a win-win business model for both brands,” De La Cruz says. “We plan to use this partnership as a pilot with potential growth together in the future.”
De la Cruz first opened her eponymous empanada shop in Johns Creek in 2020. She opened the Marietta location a year later, quickly followed by the food stall at Chattahoochee Food Works.
Llanes opened the original Cubanos ATL in Sandy Springs during the summer of 2020, which resides in a tiny house he designed and constructed in the parking lot of a small retail plaza on Roswell Road. Last spring, Llanes opened his second location at Cumming Marketplace in Cumming, Georgia, later opening the food stall at Chattahoochee Food Works that summer.
A Roswell location of Cubanos ATL was previously in the works behind former live music venue Gypsy Rose on Alpharetta Street. Llane says that location is no longer planned.
Open Monday - Saturday, 11:30 a.m. to 7 p.m.

MARIETTA, GA — A Marietta man was arrested on federal bank fraud and money laundering charges after he got a fake $9.5 million Paycheck Protection Program loan in the name of a fictitious company and then allegedly using the loan proceeds to upgrade his personal lifestyle.
Carl Delano Torjagbo, known as Karl Lucius Delano, 42, of Marietta, was arraigned before U.S. Magistrate Judge Linda T. Walker, on federal charges of bank fraud and money laundering, and was remanded to custody. Torjagbo was indicted by a federal grand jury on May 10.
The PPP is a federal loan program intended to help small businesses survive the COVID-19 pandemic by providing them with funds to cover certain payroll costs, including benefits, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.
"The FBI and our partners will not tolerate anyone who misdirects federal emergency assistance intended for business who actually need it to stay operational," said Keri Farley, Special Agent in Charge of FBI Atlanta. "Torjagbo's fraud was particularly egregious, and we will make sure he is held accountable accordingly."
According to U.S. Attorney Buchanan, the charges, and other information presented in court: On February 16, 2021, Torjagbo signed a PPP loan application on behalf of Kremkov Industries LLC and submitted it to a bank, requesting a PPP loan for more than $9 million. To be eligible for a PPP loan, a business had to have been in operation on Feb. 15, 2020. Kremkov Industries was not eligible for a PPP loan because it was not in operation on Feb. 15, 2020. In fact, it was not even created until approximately ten months after that deadline had expired.
Torjagbo swore that the information he provided in the PPP loan application and in all supporting documents and forms was "true and accurate in all material respects." Torjagbo certified that Kremkov Industries was in operation on Feb. 15, 2020. Torjagbo stated that Kremkov Industries had 493 employees. Torjagbo also stated that Kremkov Industries had an average monthly payroll of more than $3.8 million. All of these statements were allegedly false.
In support of the PPP loan application, Torjagbo allegedly submitted fraudulent documents to the bank, including false tax returns (IRS Forms 940, 941, and 1040) and fake reports that listed the names and make-believe payroll information of the 493 people who purportedly worked for Kremkov Industries.
On March 29, 2021, as a result of Torjagbo's alleged false and fraudulent representations, the bank transferred more than $9.5 million in PPP loan proceeds to Torjagbo's custody and control. The PPP loan proceeds were initially deposited into a bank account titled in the name of Kremkov Industries. Immediately before that deposit, the balance in that account was only $105.
On the PPP loan application, Torjagbo certified that all loan proceeds would be used only for business-related purposes as specified in the loan application and consistent with the Paycheck Protection Program Rules. Torjagbo acknowledged that he could be prosecuted if the PPP loan proceeds were knowingly used for unauthorized purposes.
On April 8, 2021, Torjagbo caused $3 million of the PPP loan proceeds to be transferred by check from the bank to a different bank. On that check, Torjagbo wrote a note stating that it was for "payroll." But those funds were not used to pay "payroll." Instead, those funds were allegedly used to pay Torjagbo's personal debts and expenses, including the following:
The PPP is a federal loan program intended to help small businesses survive the COVID-19 pandemic by providing them with funds to cover certain payroll costs, including benefits, interest on mortgages, rent, and utilities.
"This defendant allegedly stole millions of dollars in taxpayer money intended to help small businesses stay afloat during the pandemic," U.S. Attorney Ryan K. Buchanan said. "We will continue to investigate and charge anyone who fraudulently obtains these critical funds and uses them for their own personal gain."

About 200 people gathered for the Georgia Cherokee Community Alliance’s at-large Meeting at Laurel Park in Marietta on Saturday.
It was the first in-person meeting for the Cherokee Nation in Georgia since the COVID-19 pandemic began. Attendees got their Cherokee IDs, registered to vote in Cherokee Nation elections, met with the principal Chief and gathered in community with other Cherokee people from the region.
“I think it’s a particularly Cherokee thing to want to be together with extended family.” said principal Chief Chuck Hoskin, Jr. “So one of the things we worked on during COVID was how do we keep connected with people when we have to stay apart from each other?”
Hoskin attributes the large turnout to the increased outreach the Cherokee Nation developed during COVID-19. It launched the Gadugi (Cherokee meaning “working together”) Portal for centralized access to resources for all Cherokee people during COVID.
The Cherokee Nation also shared language and educational videos so people could connect with the culture from anywhere.

This was important for people like Christine Hartman Derr who drove with her family from Knoxville, Tennessee, to the event. She watched language videos with her two kids throughout the pandemic, and wants to ensure her kids know their stories and are proud of their heritage.
“Our ancestors worked so hard to keep our culture,” she said. “They walked so far for us.”
Derr goes to her kids’ school during Native American Heritage month to read Traci Sorell’s “We Are Grateful: Otsaliheliga.” The book shows how people can express daily gratitude to unelanvhi, literally “the one who provides all.”
Cherokee stories are passed down through generations of oral history. Robert Lewis is an award-winning Cherokee storyteller at the meeting who brought members of the audience into his stories. He had them act parts of the stories explaining creation and family ties and say lines. The participation is part of what helps pass these stories along.
“Traditionally, you listened to your grandparents, aunts, uncles, and they would pass down cultural knowledge to you, like which plants to use for medicine, which plants for food,” he said. “These stories, some of them are thousands of years old. And they say you’re still here, just like we’re still here.”
