More than two decades ago, Pittsburghers were hard-pressed to tell the difference between a cachapa and a chalupa. Nick’s Mexican roots gave him the courage to put down the first Mexican grocery store in Pittsburgh. A farmer by heart, Nick paved the way for adventurous chefs. He took chances, worked hard, and in true Pittsburgh-fashion, carved out his own path in our region’s culinary world. His store, Reyna Foods, manufacturers corn tortilla chips, corn and flour tortillas and tamales. Reyna’s products are supplied to supermarkets, food-service distributors, restaurants and other retail locations. During his talk, Nick will share his perspective on what Pittsburgh was and is today.
