Meanwhile, I built a wholesale branch of business for selling frozen empanadas to other local businesses who resell the empanadas. Today, my empanadas can be found in a variety of local businesses from cafes, restaurants, bars/pubs, gas stations, various farmer’s markets, even local butcher shops! After 7+ years of sealing every single empanada myself by hand, I had to make the hard decision of importing a semi-automatic empanada sealing machine to aid in the empanada sealing due to the onset of tendonitis in my hands/arms. This marked the end of an era where every empanada flavor had its own physical hand-sealed shape, but began the welcome era of sustainable consistent production of empanadas! The benefit of this machine, aside from saving the function in my arms, is that it seals every single empanada with letters on the crust that make their insides easily recognizable!! Talk about a win/win!!
The latest addition to our empanada flavor family is the long awaited, highly requested, and much anticipated Vegan line of empanadas!! It was released in early 2019, after months of research and working on both dough and recipe formulas. I am thrilled to have joined the local plant based community, offering a delicious line of options of, “fast” food that is made from scratch with love and quality ingredients.
