Jose Franco is at no loss for words when asked why, with no previous experience, he decided to become a restaurateur one day in 1974: "Having your own business is everyone's dream, isn't it? When the opportunity came, I took it." Today, Franco and his wife, Molly, are owners of a neighborhood Mexican restaurant in Laguna Niguel. It is a business that provides the couple and their five children with a good living. In fact, it probably could serve as the base for a small chain of restaurants should the Francos, both 38, want to take the plunge.
