With his dedication, over time the company grew and grew. A facility was opened, and machinery was purchased. Soon Tampico Spice imported spices, processed their own herbs and spices, and became spice blenders. The product line grew to include more sizes (everything from the small cellophane packets to 300-pound barrels) and a bigger variety of herbs and spices. Upon graduation from college, Jesus’ son George joined the business.
His daughter came on board, too. Under their leadership Tampico Spice Company expanded into the industrial and institutional markets, started offering private label spices, and much more.
