How We Built This - Sietefoods.com

March 22, 2021

Our Co-founders, Vero & Miguel, recently sat down (aka hopped on Zoom from their living rooms!) with our friend, Guy Raz, to tell him the story of Siete on the latest episode of the How I Built This podcast. Their conversation has us feeling nostalgic and grateful for the journey that led us to where we are today.



Before Siete, there was just the seven of us Garzas in Laredo, Texas. Our road to Siete began with family—our grandparents, our mom and dad, and our brothers and sisters.

If you’ve ever read our packaging, you may know the following part of our story well: When our sister, Vero, was diagnosed with several health conditions, our family of seven (siete) came together to support her by adopting a grain free diet—yes, all of us! Even with each other's support, it wasn’t easy. Giving up grains also meant giving up some of our favorite foods, like flour tortillas. It felt as if we were turning our back on our heritage. Like the problem-solver she is, Vero started experimenting in the kitchen, using alternative ingredients like almond flour to make a grain free tortilla. Our family knew that we had something special we wanted to share.

And yet, there’s so much more to our story that simply cannot fit on a bag of Grain Free Tortilla Chips.

We’re excited to share these untold stories (including some of the embarrassing ones we typically reserve for sharing around the dinner table) with you. It means the world to us to honor and give thanks to our familia, our community, where we’ve been, and where we’re going.

In July of 2021 (during our Siete Small Batch: Salsa Duo Edition!), we asked you what foods you wanted to see us make next. To our delight, the overwhelming response was one of our childhood favorites: Puffed snacks! Growing up, we’d enjoy these chile-covered puffs drenched in lime juice, bag after bag. It’s a dream to create a grain free version of this nostalgic snack for you, so we aptly named them Sueñitos Puff Snacks—a dream come true!
