We are delighted to welcome the new owners of ¡Que Rico! Foods in Todos Santos, María Lacurain and Norma Redo. After many years of providing delicious homemade and natural foods to the community, Deborah Horn has now retired.
While Norma is in charge of the production and kitchen, Maria oversees the store, with the continuing help of Paulina Avila, who had previously worked for Deborah.
Maria and Norma are both originally from Mexico City and have been living in Baja for two years now. Norma lives in Cabo San Lucas, and Maria in Todos Santos. They both spent a lot of time in the peninsula growing up but did not know each other back then. Norma is a chef and Maria specialized in environment and development. They are incredibly happy that Paulina will continue to work in the shop, she, like Maria and Norma, is a mom and from Mexico City, so they have a lot in common.
When Deborah Horn decided to retire and sell ¡Que Rico! Foods, Maria and Norma saw a great opportunity with a lot of potential. They see ¡Que Rico! as a shared intention to start a process that will allow them to channel different interests in a structured way, such as sustainable sourcing, running a high-quality kitchen, and taking on a business responsibility while raising children. That’s quite an undertaking!
While honoring the incredible work that Deborah and Jaime did at ¡Que Rico! Foods, Maria and Norma hope to grow as individuals and as partners, providing new and better products for the Todos Santos community for many years to come. The current shop space is small, but they are planning to increase its size.
In spite of these challenging times, Maria and Norma are working hard to improve the quality of their products and are looking for more exciting things to offer. In addition to all the great products that we know and love, they now have Black Forest ham, some different varieties of cheese, and a couple of new recipes like the pesto, and the Chili con Carne. Please let them know what you would like to see in the store.
Maria, Norma, and Paulina wish to thank the community for its continued support, are grateful for everybody’s patience with the changeover. They appreciate the well-wishes and loving words that customers offer when they visit the shop. Maria and Norma are enjoying the opportunity to get to know more people in the community and shared with us that it´s a beautiful feeling to be accompanied in this journey.
