    We want to make sure we're doing our part to support Trojan-owned businesses during this time and we know many of you on this board would like to do the same. So we thought it could be helpful to put together a directory of Trojan-owned business to potentially help those owners and you as consumers. This is just a start. Please feel free to send me any recommendations (erik.mckinney@gmail.com) you have to add to this list, in any industry, in any state.

    If you find yourself farther afield, Nando's, a chain of fast-food restaurants specializing in Portuguese cuisine, is owned by a Trojan, Dick Enthoven of South Africa. Although these eateries are found mostly southern Africa, the Middle East, Australia, Britain and Ireland, there are a few in the US, and these are in the Washington, DC area. I have eaten at one in Arlington , Va., and I will definitely go back if I find myself in the area again. It's where I was introduced to Peri Peri, a fiery African pepper sauce.

    I recall meeting a guy at a USC event who owns Miguel's Jr. in Costa Mesa and a couple other locations. Isn't he a USC grad?

    That must have been Javier Vasquez, the CEO of Miguel's Jr. and the son of the founder of the chain, which began with Miguel's a popular Mexican restaurant just off the 91 freeway in Corona. Not sure if he's a USC grad, but he could very well be if he was at a USC event.
