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 Management

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

    Disapproves of CEO

    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 Management

    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 have been working at Juanita's Foods full-time (More than a year)

    Pros

    Great staff and management, competitive salary, room to grow and very family oriented. There have been many positive changes over the last few years and I love it!!

    Cons

    There are some employees that just don't like to change or evolve and sometimes slow things down but other than that.....no cons. The CEO and CFO are down to earth and cool guys.
