A longstanding Hopewell Junction, NY florist has been sold to new owners, and is moving just down the street under a brand new name.

El Guacamole in Hopewell Changes To El Jalapeno

Somewhat of a newcomer to the Hopewell Junction community, El Guacamole restaurant, in the same plaza as the former Twilight Florist, also recently went through an ownership change, and is now operating under the name El Jalapeno.

Noting that they are still offering the same menu, and you'll still see the same staff, El Jalapeno 'cannot wait to continue to serve you.' Known for their authentic Mexican food and hand-crafted margaritas, you'll still be able to get all of your favorites, just under a new name.
