Ruiz Food Products, the USA’s largest frozen Mexican food manufacturer, has announced plans to establish a regional headquarters in Frisco, Texas, that is expected to bring at least 125 jobs to the area by 2026.

Founded in Tulare, California in1964, the family-owned company’s extensive portfolio of retail and foodservice products includes enchiladas, burritos, chimichangas, taquitos, tamales, quesadillas, entrées and breakfast bowls sold under the El Monterey, Tornados and Artisan Bistro brand names and other labels. It employs more 3,500 people at facilities in California, Texas and South Carolina.

“Texas is the number one destination for economic opportunity in America, and I am proud to welcome Ruiz Foods to Frisco,” said Governor Greg Abbott. “With an unrivaled business climate and skilled, diverse workforce, the Lone Star State has a competitive advantage that continues to attract top-tier companies like Ruiz Foods.”

“In continuing to plan the next phase of our growth, we realized the need for a centrally located regional headquarters in a larger metropolitan area,” said Ruiz Foods President and CEO Dan Antonelli. “We believe selecting Frisco will allow for greater business opportunities, more efficient access to each of our facilities, and easier recruitment of talent with important skill sets, such as consumer products, IT, and marketing experience.”

“This is an exciting time,” added Ruiz Foods Chairman Kim Ruiz Beck. “We are a national business, and this decision will allow us to better serve both our customers and our manufacturing facilities.”
