Jose Solis / La Chiquita Tortilla Manufacturer
In the 1970’s, Marcelino and Juana Solis owned a Mexican restaurant in Atlanta. At the time, Atlanta was limited to only one tortilla factory-the product of which Marcelino and Juana found lacking. Due to this lack of quality, the couple decided to start making their own tortillas for their restaurant. They were pleasantly surprised by the high demand for authentic, quality tortilla and chips. This eventually lead to the couple becoming involved in the production of tortillas and chips as a business. Because of their extensive experience in managing restaurants, Marcelino and Juana have the unique perspective of understanding customer needs. This understanding has given the couple much success. Today, La Chiquita Tortilla Manufacturer sells over one million cases annually, and is distributed by all major food service distributors.
