Creating a legacy for celebrating legacies.

We are building a name for ourselves through our commitment to fresh-made ingredients and products that represent the authentic flavors of Central America, South America and other regions around the globe. Our stores were some of the first in the U.S. to bring different Hispanic specialty departments under one roof.

We seek to inspire a sense of pride in those seeing the way we honor their culinary traditions. And a sense of appreciation in those who are newly discovering them.

Tapping into the fastest growing demographic in the U.S.

The Hispanic population has grown tremendously throughout the 21st century and is expected to continue on that trajectory into the future, further accelerating the growth of our Hispanic-focused businesses.

Rapidly growing our family.

Our stores are located in six states with some of the largest and fastest-growing Hispanic populations. We are continually seeking opportunities to expand our footprint by opening new stores and acquiring local and family-owned businesses with significant synergy potential. We have already identified a strong pipeline of new stores where we can leverage our powerful brands to more deeply penetrate existing Hispanic markets, including Texas, California, and Illinois, as well as enter new Hispanic markets, including Florida and New Mexico.
