Juanitas Foods Serves Largest Menudo Soup To Celebrate National Menudo Month
"Soup is the taste of life at Juanita's. Today we are honored to share the tradition of menudo, one of our favorite soups, with our community and friends," said Aaron De La Torre, Juanita's CEO, maker of the #1 selling menudo in the U.S.
"Juanita's Foods has been an exemplary community business for decades," said Los Angeles Mayor Eric Garcetti. "When I heard about today's record-setting event, I had to be here, because not only is menudo the life blood of our culture, but it is the Mexican breakfast of champions."
Latino celebrities, including Mexican actress Angélica María and Mexican Regional Music singer Jonatan Sanchez, joined hundreds who took part in the history-making celebration. The event also marked the conclusion of Juanita's Vive la Tradición Menudo Contest. Adalia Quiroga, from San Bernardino, was named California Queen of Homemade Menudo, winning a new Kia Soul.
