Frozen food manufacturer Ruiz Food Products, Inc. will establish a regional headquarters in Frisco, Texas. The project is expected to create 125 jobs by 2026.
The facility will place company executives closer to its product packaging plant, which is located about 60 miles north in Denison. Employees in the new office will work in conjunction with the company’s other regional headquarters in Dinuba, California, according to company officials.
"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 Ruiz Foods President and CEO Dan Antonelli. "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."
Ruiz Foods is a family-owned food manufacturer based in Dinuba, California. Its two flagship brands, El Monterey and Tornados, are both the #1 brands in their respective categories (frozen Mexican food and roller grill snacks).
"Texas is the number one destination for economic opportunity in America, and I am proud to welcome Ruiz Foods to Frisco,” said Governor Gregg Abbott. "With an unrivaled business climate and skilled, diverse workforce, the Lone Star State has a competitive advantage that continues to attract top-tier companies like Ruiz Foods. Ruiz Foods' new regional headquarters will bring more jobs and brighter futures to North Texans, and together we will keep Texas the best state for business in the nation."
"Welcome Ruiz Foods, and thank you for bringing 125 jobs to Hall Park in Frisco," said Frisco Economic Development Corporation President Jason Ford, CEcD. "When companies choose Frisco, they are choosing the best city in Texas for business."
