Mr. Anju Haniffa (7-Eleven) is one of the newest yet best investors in our community. Mr. Haniffa opened his 7-Eleven on the corner of Sepulveda & Roscoe.

Panorama City is proud to have him as our friend and business partner.
Mr. Sergio Ovando (Dominos Pizza, Panorama Mall) is a great supporter of the Panorama City Neighborhood Council and he is always ready to go the extra mile to make sure everything is according to plan. He provides the neighborhood council and any community activity with an extra discount when purchases are made at his location. His company has also donated hundreds of dollars to schools, parks and community events.
These six gentleman have really made a difference in Panorama City, opening new business, creating jobs, investing in the community, lending a hand and making Panorama City the place to shop, work, and live.
