Company Summary

World Empanadas fills a need across many generations. It provides a hot meal in a pocket. It is easy to eat for on the go and the fillings range from spicy chile relleno to a middle eastern lamb stew filled with flavor. You never get tired - the variety is endless. The food is all natural and healthier. Customers are "foodies" who come to look for a Oaxacan cricket and potatoes empanada to the very young seeking a pepperoni and cheese.
