our story

We are a local family bakery located in the heart of West Michigan.  It has been a strong desire of ours for some time to own and operate a family business, and this goal became a reality after some friends from Ontario, Canada told us it could be done.  And so for two years, beginning in 2014, we went to work experimenting with recipes and planning the start of our small bakery, J&J Tortilla Co. Inevitably, friends and family thought we were crazy; after all, we both had successful careers in banking and nursing, but - our hearts were too much grounded in making our dream, become a reality. We were patient in getting our business started as there was much work involved, but we did it and as Walt Disney once said, "the way to get started is to quit talking and start doing"....so, here we are.  In December of 2016 we purchased some property in the rural town of Hopkins, Michigan in Allegan County to reside and build a commercial kitchen. In the following September, our project was complete!  There have been so many along the way who have been supportive and encouraging and they know who they are - our sincerest thank you!  ...this is just the beginning of a great venture!

Over the years, we have seen ingredient labels on many products become more and more like short horror novels, rather than short, simple lists.  It has been and will continue to be our passion to give our customers what they deserve - the best and freshest stone ground flour tortilla they have ever had.

Thank you so much for being our customer and please drop us a message or come visit us at some of West Michigan's farmers markets.

Sincerely,

Jason & Jaclyn & Co.
