    Beyond the Usual Menu

    When customers think of Latin American cuisine, the traditional view has often been that of a uniform menu of standards including tacos and burritos. That’s just the tip of the iceberg when it comes to the possibilities that this relatively untapped part of the world has to offer to franchise owners.

    There’s a deep and rich heritage behind the meals from the region and a sense of boundless inventiveness and originality. It invites exploration and adaptation while serving as a model that we work to follow every day at The Empanada Maker.

    Meet Our Founder

    The Empanada Maker prioritizes innovation and top-notch customer care as part of our daily business operations. It’s a way of working that has been built into our franchise model and comes straight from our founder and CEO, Cameron Davis.

    Cameron was always drawn to the cuisine of South America. He appreciated the way the dishes from the region emphasized convenience, especially the king of South American quick dining, the empanada.

    When Cameron bit into his first empanada, he fell in love. He was immediately taken with the adaptability of the pocket pastry, and before long, the concept of The Empanada Maker was born.

    Our first brick-and-mortar opened in 2013 and was an immediate hit with customers. We’ve continued to grow ever since.

    Today, The Empanada Maker is a destination for customers across California, but our future plans for growth are much bigger. We’re preparing to expand our reach over the next several years and are moving into new territories across the country.
