Latin News started printing its newspaper in 1995 and quickly became one of the most reliable and popular newspapers for the Hispanic community.
However, something happened in 1997 that sparked the idea for the Hispanic Telephone Directory. The offices of Lu Enterprises Inc received a phone call from a member of the community asking if we published a directory in Spanish that contained information that was on particular interest for the Hispanic community in Oregon and Washington and that contained places where they could serve in Spanish.
As the weeks went by, more and more phone calls came into our offices from the public asking if we published a resource that contained community and Hispanic merchant information. At that moment, we realized the necessity of such an important resources to be in printed in Spanish and in 1999, the first edition of the Hispanic Telephone Directory was published Source
