Tasty Jax provides a large variety of chili enchiladas candies. We have developed a proprietary recipe that has resonated with our customers and brings a different taste to candies they have known for years. We decided to start Tasty Jax in March 2020 after my husband was laid off from his job due to COVID-19. When we realized that there was no competition in our area for chili enchiladas candies, we knew that we could have something special!
Tasty Jax, LLC operates in Lufkin, TX. However, we have an online candy store, and we are seeking to expand and mobilize our business by purchasing a truck to pull our customized food trailer. We have clientele in Lufkin, Nacogdoches, TX, Houston, TX, Port Arthur, TX, California, and New Mexico. Our online presence is constantly expanding, and we are now wholesaling products to boutique stores and other businesses.
My husband and I started Tasty Jax after COVID-19 eliminated our positions at our jobs, and we had to figure out a way to survive and create a reliable income for our family. With my Mexican roots, I researched the local market and determined that there was a void in my community in the area of chili enchiladas candies despite the relatively large Hispanic population in Lufkin. Hispanics account for 20% of Lufkin, TX.
My husband and I are first-generation entrepreneurs. We’ve experienced and observed the troubles of working for other people. We know that now is the time to establish financial and economic stability for ourselves and especially for our children. We also truly enjoy the satisfaction our customers have when they taste our candies for the first time. During difficult times, providing smiles on the faces of the children and their parents helps them to forget about their troubles for a brief moment.
