About My Family Business

MilissaMy Parents Tomas and Maria Silva are from Aguascalientes, Mexico, where they met and instantly fell in love.  They have been married for over 30 years and they have co-owned and operated our family business El Burrito Mercado  for over 25 years.  
I also have a brother Tomas and sister  Suzanne whom I love dearly.  I oversee daily management of both locations in St. Paul & Midtown Global Market, marketing, advertising, special events, and catering along with creating new opportunities. 
My brother  Tomas has ventured off on his own and now pursues other life goals, one of which includes Silva Concessions, LLC where he sells Mexican foods at festivals.  My sister Suzanne is point of contact for administration regarding human resources, accounts payables/receivables, and other administrative services. However, because it’s a family business… there are days when we have to stock shelves, clean restrooms, sweep floors and cashier. As entrepreneurs we truly wear ALL the hats!

    My wife, Lynne, and I love your authentic Mexican food and the atmosphere in your store. It reminds us of our Mexican vacations in the past.
