Our Story


Happy was born from the desire to bring the diverse range of cuisines and ethnicities from California to Matagalpa while utilizing the freshest local ingredients to support small, local farmers and producers.

Co-owner Gustavo Lugo Guevara, born in Matagalpa, spent over 30 years in the San Francisco Bay Area working in Banquets and Catering.  Specializing in fine hospitality and friendly service, Gustavo excelled at such well known hotels as Crowne Plaza, Sheraton, and Hilton.

Chef and co-owner, Thor Kennedy was born and raised in California and cooked professionally in several renowned restaurants and hotels in the San Francisco Bay Area.   

Together Gustavo and Thor have created Happy, a place to enjoy comfortable, delicious, fresh, and affordable cuisine. 

We will continually strive to provide the best quality ingredients and occasionally change the menu to evolve with our customers’ feedback and culinary desires.  We welcome your comments/feedback and very much appreciate your patronage.



Stay Happy!  Gracias y Buen Provecho!!

Mexican-style Taco Salad

Our planet is precious.  Its resources limited.  Why fly, ship, or truck out-of-season ingredients to our restaurants and grocery stores, when we enjoy one of the most fertile and abundant agriculture areas on the planet? 

Nicaragua, the Northern territory, and Matagalpa particularly, should boast of its beautiful variety of fresh fruits and vegetables, locally grass-fed beef & pork, free-range chicken & eggs, and local dairy. 

Cheeseburger & Fries

Our goal is to utilize what Mother Nature has so bountifully provided into our menu, while simultaneously supporting the hard-working ranchers, farmers, and their families. 

The by-products are a healthier planet, contributions to the local economy, and sumptuous cuisine that can be found nowhere else in the region. 

Everyone is HAPPY!
