que vino para Quedarse"
In the year of 1989, a young couple decided to take a chance
and open the first Mexican Bakery in Atwater, California.
Jesus and Eva Medina had no previous experience owning a
business, as well as no support when they started their
journey. Yet despite the obstacles they persevered and Conchitas
Panaderia still stands today.
came from a family of bakers from Michoacan, Mexico. The
Medina family was known for their ancestral recipe of Conchitas.
From this recipe Jesus and Eva started from the bottom and
worked their way up. In the beginning when they were starting
out, Eva Medina would go out to the camps and sell bread.
She would drive around and introduce people to the first
Mexican Bakery that had just opened up. Jesus and Eva Medina's
hard work paid off, they found loyal customers who continue
to come back year after year.
During the 27
years that Conchitas Panaderia has been opened, never once
has there been a stranger behind the counter. Since its
opening day Conchitas Panaderia has been a family run business,
showcasing the love and support that we value as a business.
In the year of 2002 when Jesus and Eva Medina decided to
move, they sold the bakery to their only son in law, still
keeping it a family run business.
Since 2002 until
now Joel Gutierrez has been the owner, keeping the legacy
alive while providing some of the best pan dulces. As if
that wasn't enough, Conchitas Panaderia continues to make
delicious cakes for birthdays, weddings, and quinceaneras;
providing locals with tamales, menudo and other Mexican
has been around for 27 years and we hope to continue running
it for many more years to come. The dream that Jesus and
Eva Medina had grew and it continues to grow due to the
love and support of our local clientele. From us to you,
thank you for your undending support!
