Guasacaca was born in 2012 out of David Gutiérrez’s dream of conquering the London food scene with Venezuela’s quintessential dish: the arepa. 

Guasacaca was born in 2012 out of David Gutiérrez’s dream of conquering the London food scene with Venezuela’s quintessential dish: the arepa. The young entrepeneur describes the experience of setting up and expanding his business in London as “incredible”: “I have been so lucky to meet many enthusiastic people throughout this journey; people with a genuine desire to take part and contribute in making Guasacaca such a flourishing business.” Indeed, since setting up its first stall at Deptford Market in East London back in 2012, Guasacaca has taken over the London street market scene, popping up its signature stalls across the city’s trendiest markets, including Portobello and Pump Shoreditch. 

David is an extroverted and energetic young professional with experience in Sales both in the Venezuelan and the UK industries. 

David is an extroverted and energetic young professional with experience in Sales both in the Venezuelan and the UK industries. 

After completing a Bachelor’s degree in Economics at the prestigious Universidad Católica Andrés Bello in Caracas, he obtained a Postgraduate degree in Applied Economics from the same institution and later on, he completed a MSc in Innovation Management and Entrepreneurship from Middlesex University in London.  
 
After working as Sales Marketing Advisor for a Direct Sales and Marketing Company in London, David finally decided to pursue his dream and went ahead to set up his own food business. 
 

David thus founded Guasacaca out of his desire of introducing Venezuela’s favourite dish into London’s vibrant and diverse gastronomic culture. 

Throughout the years, the business has secured a strong presence across the city’s food markets and keeps on growing and expanding. David talks proudly of his team, whose members he describes as enthusiastic, happy, motivated and focused on carrying the business forward. They all share the same dream: conquering the hearts -and palates- of British and international customers in the UK and beyond.
