Combine the idea of a family business with an American success story and add to it the tantalizing feature of it being the story of an immigrant, in this case from Mexico, and you have something to really sink your teeth into. Speaking of which, when we are talking about a supermarket, the metaphor becomes a reality, as food is precisely what we literally sink our teeth into.
Chavez Supermarket had its provenance when a certain Mr. David Chavez, originally from Michoacán, Mexico, decided to go into business for himself. The year was 1984, and at that time a lot of the Mexican and Latin specialties were not readily available in the Bay Area. So Mr. Chavez saw a need and rose to the occasion of satisfying it.
Since the original Chavez Meat Market, which opened its doors in Redwood City, California, Mr. Chavez’s dream expanded to other ofhis supermarkets in a number of other locations from Menlo Park to San Jose. Each Chavez Supermarket offers a meat department as well as produce and general groceries. The bakery and the “Tortilla Factory” in its San Jose location. The latter makes the best tortilla chips available anywhere. When you take a batch home and cook it up, it’s like the best homemade version you’ll have ever tasted.
One major feature of Chavez Supermarket is the presence in them of a unique Taqueria – which you’ll find in five of its six locations. Each of these is like a special and authentic Mexican restaurant where you’ll find the best burritos or tacos or quesadillas. Breakfast combination’s plus dinner or seafood plates and Mexican soups are also on the menu for your breakfast or dining pleasure.
In addition to all the above – as if that weren’t enough – Chavez Supermarket has its special customer service booths where you can cash your check or buy a money order or conduct other businesses, such as wiring money, for example, at and for your convenience.
All in all, Chavez Supermarket offers value for your hard-earned dollar. The year 2000, the dawn of the 21st century, saw a new venture, the daily baking of Mexican sweet bread, which today is delivered fresh every day to all the supermarket’s stores. There is no denying the fact that when you walk into one of Chavez Supermarket’s doors, you’ll find the best of traditional Mexican and Latin foods in ample supply. The quality is always the highest, and the service is always the friendliest.
It is not easy to cater to special tastes, but when a company knows how, the results are always phenomenal. From special dishes prepared on the premises to the best that’s available in meat and produce, to the wide variety of cheeses and products imported from Mexico and other Latin American countries, if you are looking for it, you are likely to find it at Chavez Supermarket in your area. Be assured that you are always welcome at one of these fine stores, and that your shopping experience is going to be second to none.
