Efren moved to the desert 28 years ago when he was 17 years old.  In 1986, Efren began work at Las Casuelas Nuevas as a busboy.  He then moved to Bar Back and eventually became Bartender.  With his hard work and leadership ability he became Head Bartender.  It didn’t take long before the owners recognized that not only would he be good as a bartender but also as a Manager.  He has been a Manager of Las Casuelas Nuevas ever since.  When Efrin isn’t working he loves spending time with his children and working in his garden.
