In order to continue servicing their customers, Rudy's leased equipment and space in a location close to Fort Worth and within seven days resumed production. With the aid of friendly competitors and support from their customers, the down time in production and distribution was minimal.
In September, 1994, taking a leave of absence from his studies at the University of North Texas, Rudy Sr.'s youngest son joined the company. Joe R. Guerra, named after his grandfather, the founder of the company, took complete charge of rebuilding the kitchen and retail store portion of the Maple Avenue location.
Joe received his BS from UNT in 1996 with a degree in SMHM, Hospitality Management. He is now VP of Rudy’s Tortillas serving 40 states and multiple countries.
In October, 1994, Rudy's Tortillas returned to its own building, a newly purchased, customized plant of 25,600 square feet on three acres of land at 535 Regal Row in the industrial area of Dallas.
