Managing Partner, Chris Consorte, said “We’re excited about our gourmet-2go!
Popularity of empanadas, in general, seem to be on the upswing across the country. Consorte went on to say: “Empanadas have the potential to have similar popularity to buying a slice of pizza. It’s a low-cost, quick-bite, that folks can eat on the go.”
With added popularity comes additional competition – and the empanada market is no exception. Consorte continued, “There’s lots of empanada manufacturers out there – and undoubtedly many of them are great. However, we’ve seen huge demand increases recently for our chicken, beef, ham and cheese and pizza empanadas. We’re currently producing over 60,000 empanadas daily – not to mention our food is produced in a USDA facility – so we stand out a bit from the small mom-and-pop manufacturers because we can do the volume to satisfy major supermarket chains and the like.”
