This store is dedicated in memory of my late father Joaquin Farinas. This store is also dedicated to my mother Nora Farinas. These two people are the hardest working people I have ever known. They set an exceptional standard that can only be defined by devotion and tenacious commitment. Our employees are the soul of our operations and a vivid reflection of our values and virtues. A racially diverse workforce with a commitment to quality service is a recipe for greatness. With integrity and an unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction, we will redefine the way grocery shopping is done in the 21st century.
Our store will open in 2021. The best way to experience our store or our wide selection of products will be to regularly check in to see what we’re up to, thanks for visiting.
Meeting and surpassing customer expectations in the areas of quality, efficiency, and transparency are qualities that we hold dear. However, we are also painfully aware of racial prejudice and economic sufferings that have characterized the lives of marginalized groups and communities of the United States.
Our awareness is shaped by the many socio-economic struggles and the many injustices that Latinx people face in America today. It is within this context that we have created the framework for our social responsibility efforts. It is our obligation as a minority-owned business that uses a collective model as its business model to support causes that uplift and transform Hispanic & Latinx communities of the U.S. We also believe in supporting communities of color and supporting the efforts of the dominant majority wherever it leans in to help these communities rise above their circumstances.
We serve many independent reputable social foundations & social institutions. We donate a percentage of our profits to a handful of foundations that seek to make this a better world. Through the efforts of these foundations and institutions, we will fight to create a more equitable world. Together, with our partners, we are fighting the many social injustices facing disenfranchised groups & communities in America today. Our causes are well articulated to elevate other disadvantaged communities and encompass the many social ills that the U.S. faces today.
