Casa Valdez Has Cranked Out Tortillas For 41 Years. Now, Owner Is Calling It Quits

After cranking out millions of corn and flour tortillas over four decades, Jose Valdez said he is ready for a break.

The owner of Casa Valdez, Idaho’s leading retail supplier of tortillas, Valdez is shutting down his factory at 502 Chicago St. in Caldwell. The factory will use up its remaining corn masa, made in house from dried corn, and then close sometime in the next few weeks, putting about 30 employees out of work.

“I’m just tired,” Valdez, 74, told the Idaho Statesman. “I’ve been here too long, 41 years.”
