Maria and Ricardo’s Tortillas
Maria and Ricardo’s, founded in 1986 by cousins Maria and Ricardo, makes tortillas using simple and wholesome ingredients that don’t involve artificial flavors, colors, and preservatives, hydrogenated oils, dairy, and eggs.
The company was founded after Maria and Ricardo came to Boston via Mexico. Upon arrival, they felt the local tortillas crumbled easily and came with a sour taste. With an idea to fix tortillas in America, the cousins traveled back to Mexico to learn more about the product. Maria and Ricardo then set up a small tortilleria in Jamaica Plan (a Boston neighborhood), which was met with success and customer demand.
