Jalisco Tortilla Factory

May 16 – 29, 2018. We are proud to offer our local coupon in this issue for savings on two popular Jalisco products, Flour Tortillas and Maggie’s Salsa Verde!

Jalisco Tortilla Factory is a family-owned and operated business. Maggie Velasco-Lucero and her partner Medardo “Eddie” Lucero have been examples to everyone in their family by demonstrating that hard work and perseverance can pay off.

Both Maggie and Eddie migrated here from Mexico, and both became citizens of the United States years ago. In 1997, they opened the doors to Tortilleria Jalisco (Jalisco Tortilla Factory). Although Maggie and Eddie struggled for many years to get their small tortilla business off the ground, they put everything on the line to ensure the survival of this small business in a highly competitive marketplace.

The Luceros attribute their success to hard work, sacrifice, and their faith. Maggie and Eddie have never forgotten where they came from, and have always been gracious with donations to their local Shelton community. The Olympia Food Co-op also carries Mag­gie’s Red Salsa, Corn Tortillas, and Tortilla Chips!
