Yelp Names Latinx-Owned Businesses as “Ones to Watch” in Home & Decor for 2021

In celebration of last year’s Latinx Heritage Month, Yelp announced the Latinx-owned business attribute in partnership with Momento Latino to help people support Latinx entrepreneurs in their local communities across the country. Since its 2020 launch, more than 24,000 businesses have self-identified as Latinx-owned on Yelp, making it easier than ever for consumers to find these local businesses. In honor of Latinx Heritage Month this year, we’re sharing a list of standout Latinx-owned home and decor businesses on our platform.

Whether you’re looking for a modern sofa, Mexican folk art, a stylish planter or a colorful seagrass basket, our list of great Latinx-run businesses has got you covered. 

In order to identify Latinx-owned businesses to watch across the U.S., Yelp’s data science team started by combing our data to identify businesses with the Latinx-owned business attribute in categories like “home decor,” “art galleries” and “kitchen & bath.” From the candidate businesses, we limited the list to two businesses per state, and narrowed it down through weighing a variety of factors, including a national presence, average rating and review counts. Finally, we used human curation to identify trendsetting businesses in the home space to determine the final Ones to Watch.

In addition to stellar businesses in the home and decor space, check out our Latinx-owned One’s to Watch in food and beauty in our blog post here. Businesses listed are organized alphabetically.
