Nicole Vasquez is the founder of Nicole Taylor Boutique in Lancaster which focuses on ethically and sustainably made fashion and accessories for women, all sourced by designers who Nicole works with directly. She forms relationships with the designers she sells and makes sure she knows where and how the products are made.
Nicole recently teamed up with her fiance Jebron Taylor, along with partners Dustin and Heather Lewis to launch Blazin J’s, a specialty chicken restaurant just off the square in Lancaster City in November of 2019.
The restaurant is located on the same block as some of Lancaster’s premiere nightlife, so they set a goal to be open until 3am on Friday and Saturday nights. During their first month of business, their chicken was so popular that they sold out before closing time each weekend. Since we recorded this interview, Blazin’ J’s announced a second location at Park City Center in Lancaster, opening in January 2020.
Since her first job at age 14, Nicole saved her money, invested in real estate, and self funded her first ventures. She has a remarkable work ethic that has allowed her to lean into her passions, and love what she does.
