I worked at Juanita's Foods

Pros

As the headline states, the brands are great - and the legacy behind the brands are something to be proud of. The company carries real recognition in the Mexican Foods category - and could be so much more.

Cons

The owners and their team of senior business advisers are not clear on their strategy.

Advice to ManagementAdvice

Bring in a President who knows food who can get the job done - and get out of the way.

    I worked at Juanita's Foods

    Pros

    Product name recognition in the Southern California area.

    Cons

    Co-CEO's are not intimately engaged in the "Big Picture" and core business that they inherited from their father. They are more interested in the Bling Bling and material things. They do not invest enough into the company to maintain a good customer service level. Two VP , five Operations/Plant Manager's, Director of R&D, and several key sales and marketing VP's turned over in less than five years.

    Advice to ManagementAdvice

    Hire a President and let them run the company and have the current CEO's step down and recruit and retain good management people to run your facility in short order for the present and future.

    Quit micro-managing something that you have little interest in and just enjoy the rewards of potentially very profitable business.

    I worked at Juanita's Foods full-time (more than an year)

    Pros

    There are some great, hard working people there. The pay is good and so are the benefits. Occasionally, there are family style get togethers which are great for morale.

    Cons

    There is little direction this company is going forward to. With the current business outlook, the direction as it appears is to cut workers and to downsize products and operations.
