2019 Annual Banquet

This is the one event you don’t want to miss!

Each year at our Annual Awards Banquet we bring a recognizable keynote speaker who acknowledges the issues that we’re facing in our community.  This is a great way to meet the leaders of AHCC and to learn about the issues that are most important.


Guest Speaker

Joe Longoria

Mr. Longoria was born in Mathis, Texas (Northwest of Corpus Christi) and
raised in Halfway, Texas. He is a graduate of Plainview High School and
Texas Tech University with a degree in Crop Science. In 1970, he married
Ms. Bertha Musquiz. They now have 4 children, 9 grandchildren and 2
great grandchildren.

Casa Rica Tortillas was started in the fall of 1985 by the Longoria and
Musquiz families. For 27 years Casa Rica Tortillas has been able to
maintain dominance in the region against the big national brands. It’s
now in a position to take their quality authentic products and make
them available to everyone in the state of Texas and surrounding states.
Casa Rica delivers the same high quality homemade style tortillas
that they have been making in West Texas since 1985.

Casa Rica products can currently be found in local Wal-Marts, United
Supermarkets, Lowes, Albertsons, Brookshire, Lawrence Brothers, Super
Mercado, Super Save, Thriftway, Affiliated Foods, and Ben E. Keith. Mr.
Longoria has also created and patented various tortilla factory machinery
which have had a significant impact in the tortilla making industry.
