Meet Judy Camarena, President of Arandas Franchises in Houston, Texas.
Camarena’s parents moved from Chicago to Houston to help a family member open the first Arandas Mexican Food restaurant and the rest is history. Today, Taqueria Arandas has 28 locations.
Growing up, Camarena remembers lines being out the door at her parents’ restaurant. The name Arandas, refers to a town in Mexico near the birthplace of Camarena’s father. The franchise has also recently opened up a bakery to supply certain breads that they could not find in abundance in Houston. As the business continues to grow and expand, Camarena takes pride in the culture and community of her restaurants.
At Cadillac, we celebrate those whose passion and vision have reshaped our city, our lives and our culture - including Judy Camarena’s dedicated work with her family’s franchise.
Her continuous passion makes her one of the innovative and driving persons shaping Houston.
