Dos Bros Fresh Mexican Grill, 433 S. Illinois Ave., is the Oak Ridge Chamber of Commerce’s Small Business of the Month. The award is sponsored by Enrichment Federal Credit Union.

Alfredo Geurrero and his wife Alejandra Santamaria, center and their Dos Bros Fresh Mexican Grill team gather for the Small Business of the Month presentation with Chamber ambassadors Cynthia Jeffers, of Herron-Connell Insurance Agency, from left, and Whitley Myers from ORUD Natural Gas, who nominated Dos Bros. Craig Peters, far right, is president of Enrichment Federal Credit Union, the sponsor.

The eatery opened Aug. 19, 2019 at the former Chipotle location and had just gotten momentum when COVID-19 hit, plunging owner Alfredo Guerrero into a “difficult year,” according to a Chamber news release. Despite the challenges, he was motivated to look out for others in his new community, and the restaurant hosted a free burrito and soda Thanksgiving meal for those in need. Remembering his days at another restaurant, where the holiday was stressful and hectic, he offered a meal to those “who didn’t have anyone to share with.” His employees followed his giving example by showing up to serve the food to more than 200 people on their own time.
