Cacique Foods Plans to Open New Headquarters in Irving Texas

Cacique Foods – a leading family-owned Hispanic foods company and maker of the #1 brand of authentic Mexican-style cheeses, cremas, chorizos and salsas in the U.S. – celebrates its 50th anniversary with a focus on innovation and increasing production capacity to reach more family tables across America. Today, Cacique expands its operations to Texas by marking the grand opening of its new dairy processing facility in Amarillo and new corporate headquarters in Irving, TX. The company is also investing in the future of Mexican cuisine by providing educational opportunities for the next generation interested in food manufacturing careers in Amarillo.

The new facility will grow Cacique’s offerings while getting products on the shelves of even more stores nationwide. The new state-of-art plant will bring in more than 200 jobs to Texas.

Cacique has set roots in Texas with the opening of the new facility and investment in the community, and now the company looks to deepen its connections by opening a new corporate headquarter in Irving, TX where the company can better serve customers from a centralized location. The new office will provide an exceptional work environment for the growing Cacique family, improve efficiencies and promote team collaboration. Cacique has also been recertified as a great workplace by the independent analysts at Great Place to Work® for the sixth year running. The company earned this honor based on extensive ratings provided directly by its employees through anonymous surveys.

"We're proud of the success Cacique has seen over the past 50 years. The company started with my mother perfecting cheesemaking, while my father sold Queso Fresco door-to-door, one pound at a time, out of coolers in our family car," said Gil de Cardenas, CEO of Cacique Foods LLC. "As we've grown from our humble roots, one employee at a time, Cacique Foods remains a family-owned company, and we've remained true to the core values my parents founded this business upon: Family. Quality, Integrity and Authenticity."

Cacique Foods will be contributing a total of $35,000 to both Amtech Career Academy and Amarillo College to support food manufacturing curriculums and provide capital and resources for the next generation interested in food manufacturing careers in Amarillo.

"We're thankful that Cacique has already invested in our community through our students," said David Hall, Dean of Technical Education at Amarillo College. "The donation will give opportunity to even more students to have a successful career in food manufacturing."
