Nora Guerra was raised in Pasaco, Guatemala. She moved to Florida from Guatemala in 1996. She moved to Charlotte from Florida in 2000, leaving a cleaning job for an opportunity to open a bakery, la panaderia Quetzal, with her brother and business partner. In 2016, they added a restaurant, Guate-Linda. They keep Guatemalan food and culture alive and central to both the menu and atmosphere. As the head chef Nora Guerra brings Guatemalan “sazon” to all her dishes, a chance to experience Chapin culture and flavor.
