The company announced in a May 12 news release that its senior executive team will move to the new office within the next month.
The move will place company executives closer to its product packaging plant, which is located about 60 miles north in Denison. Employees in the Frisco office will work in conjunction with Ruiz Foods’ other regional headquarters in Dinuba, California, the release said.
“As we continue to plan the next phase of our growth, we have realized the need for a centrally located regional headquarters in a larger metropolitan area,” said Dan Antonelli, president and CEO of Ruiz Food Products Inc., in the release. “We believe selecting Frisco, Texas, will allow for greater business opportunities, more efficient access to each of our facilities, and easier recruitment of talent with important skill sets, such as consumer products, IT and marketing experience.”
Antonelli added Ruiz Foods expects to employ 125 employees in the Frisco area by 2026.
Ruiz Foods is widely recognized for its El Monterey brand that includes products such as burritos, taquitos, enchiladas and chimichangas. Other brands include Tornados, Artisan Bistro and Plantivore.
“Frisco is a city of great brands, and we are thrilled to welcome the new regional headquarters of Ruiz Foods to Frisco,” Mayor Jeff Cheney said in the release. “Frisco is a top destination for relocating companies seeking a great business environment and exceptional lifestyle amenities for their employees.”
