In 1986, Maria and Ricardo, two cousins from Mexico, came
to Boston driven by an entrepreneurial spirit. They had
a passion for good food, a desire to learn and try new
things and a common dream of starting a new business.
While they fell in love with Boston and the American lifestyle, they couldn’t help but miss a little taste from Mexico. Specifically, the tortillas from their hometown. The local Boston tortillas would crumble easily, were full of preservatives and had a sour taste. So a business idea was born! Maria and Ricardo decided to embark on a mission to introduce the wholesome and delicious tortillas from their childhood to their new American community.
Determined to fix the ‘Boston Tortilla Problem’, they traveled
back to Mexico to learn more about the tortilla trade. Upon
their return, they set up a small, artisanal tortilleria in Jamaica
Plain, a small neighborhood in the city of Boston, and soon
after, brought to market one of the first All Natural and
Organic Tortillas on the East Coast (and perhaps in the US).
Through this journey, our family of products has expanded to serve a wide variety of needs, styles, and nutritional standards without compromising taste and quality. Everything we bake has been crafted with one common goal, to offer a wholesome & delicious tortilla, baked just for you.
