What an awesome journey this has been...

After 22 years at Bueno Foods and 44+ years in the workforce in New Mexico, I am headed into retirement.  I can’t believe this day has come.  Thank you to the Baca Family for providing an opportunity to this unemployed single mom of a 6 year old in August of 2000. This business was totally foreign to me.  But what I learned was to work hard and truly learn what it means to be part of a team effort for this ever growing business and to know everyone in this business has a purpose. What an awesome journey this has been.  

Peace and Love,
Sharon B.
