Ruben learned how to make empanadas from his Abuelita as a young man. His love for cooking grew into a passion for feeding others. Cooking is his love language, it's how he shares his happiness. The idea of Tico's started as a conversation over some empanadas in the kitchen grew to a dream, and then a plan was set in motion. Ruben found himself with an urge to share his food with everyone he could reach. That's how Tico's Empanadas was born!!!
