In 1956 Mr. Luis Fragío Babío suggested to acquire the new headquarter of Pescaderías Coruñesas owned by Mr. Norberto García, Mr. Santiago Gómez’s brother in law, the muleteer who started La Astorgana in 1890. By this moment they had a low sales level, so the purchasing was a risky operation which also implied to inherit the eight workers of the workforce. Some years later, he married Mss. María Rosa, Mr. Santiago’s daughter, and they together took over the business when Mr. Santiago retired (dejó de hacerlo).
From the union of this married couple, on June 9th 1933 Mr. Evaristo García Gómez was born in Combarros, León. In his beginnings, he was in charge of dispensing the gender of the fish market to the clients. When he was 14, his professional labor switched to answer the fish market phone orders. Since he was 19 years old, Evaristo was focused on improving his professional development and working with more independence, although it was not possible at that moment. This changed at the age of 23 when his father, Mr. Norberto Garcia, bought Mr.Luis Fragío Babío Pescaderías Coruñesas.
The evolution and adaptation to its clients needs were gradually consolidating Pescaderías Coruñesas success. The number of clients increased and they were not only from Madrid but also from other areas of Spain, situating the enterprise in the first line of sales of fish and seafood in the national territory, even setting guidelines in the scope of exports.
