Maspanadas Recognized As Top 100 Hispanic-Led Companies in U.S.

Union Kitchen Accelerator Maspanadas, founded by Margarita Womack, has been recognized as one of Angeles Investors' top 100 Hispanic-led companies in the US. Go Margarita!! Margarita's journey began with a deep love for her Latin American heritage and a desire to bring the flavors of her culture to a wider audience. This award celebrates Maspanadas for the powerhouse it has grown to be, and positive impact Margarita is having in the food space as she grows her one empanada at a time!

The recent recognition of Maspanadas as one of Angeles Investors' top 100 Hispanic-led companies in the US is an immense source of pride and validation for Margarita Womack and her dedicated team. This prestigious accolade not only celebrates the remarkable flavors and innovation found in Maspanadas but also shines a spotlight on the invaluable contributions of Hispanic entrepreneurs to the American culinary landscape.

Margarita's journey began when she was looking for a solution to feed her growing (and very busy) family. Frustrated with the lack of options, Margarita decided to create her own! Her yummy empanadas quickly became a hit within her family, and she saw an opportunity to share her creations with others.

Through her hard work with Union Kitchen, Margarita transitioned from a catering company to a consumer packaged goods (CPG) business, launching Maspanadas as a brand known for its high-quality ingredients and authentic recipes. By leveraging the Union Kitchen Accelerator and Ecosystem Margarita was able to take an idea and turn it into a market ready product. Leveraging that very same Ecosystem Margarita was able to dominate the regional market, own her own manufacturing, and scale to a national level. The demand for her empanadas grew rapidly, and Margarita's commitment to providing delicious and nutritious meals has led to the development of an empanada empire that is now valued an an estimated $15 million.

Margarita has a passion for growth that can be an inspiration for other entrepreneurs. Maspanadas is built to last (and is just getting started), and being recognized as a top 100 company by Angeles Investors is a testament to that!
