Founding Story

MASPANADAS was brought to life by Margarita and Andy out of their passion and necessity to find healthier, tasty family meals that could accommodate their busy schedules. Margarita, having grown up in Colombia, was inspired by the meals she learned to prepare in her father's restaurant. Andy, a Virginia native, brought his love for modern American cuisine to the mix. Their unique blend of Latin roots and modern cuisine, coupled with countless testing, led to the creation of MASPANADAS - a testament to their commitment to making real food that fuels real life, especially for those in the fast lane.
