Mr. Tortilla Partners with Non-Profit Group New Horizons

LOS ANGELES — Mr. Tortilla co-founders Anthony and Ronald Alcazar announced today their partnership with New Horizons to train and employ individuals with special needs placed by the non-profit organization.

With the launch of their ground-breaking 1 Net Carb Tortilla, Mr. Tortilla decided to use a label for their packaging. With the help of New Horizons, the work of applying labels was given to individuals with special needs, and Mr. Tortilla created their own dedicated department to label their #1 selling product.

“The community is extremely important to our company,” said Anthony Alcazar, President. “Working with Walmart I’ve had the chance to visit over 100 stores across California alone. One thing I’ve noticed and that I admire about Walmart is that they truly are an equal opportunity employer. Everyone is included in their workforce, and everyone is represented. It inspired us to create opportunities for New Horizons.”

“People with disabilities have the same needs and wants as everyone else,” said John C. Brauer, New Horizons President and CEO. “Part of these needs are as simple as wanting to work. We’re proud to partner with an employer like Mr. Tortilla. They have agreed to hire our individuals with special needs by offering training and jobs within their company.”

One of the fastest-growing companies in Southern California, Mr. Tortilla is a family owned and operated business located in Los Angeles. Their #1 best-selling 1-carb tortilla has garnered them attention in the small business community. In the course of this year they have doubled their workforce and continue to hire to keep up with the demand.

About Mr. Tortilla
Two UCLA Bruins Anthony and Ronald Alcazar founded Mr. Tortilla with their father Tony Alcazar in Los Angeles, California. They felt compelled to provide a healthy and affordable tortilla, without sacrificing flavor. Growing up in Los Angeles, just like many other Latin families, they couldn’t think of a meal without tortillas and now they’re disrupting the tortilla industry. After many years in development, they have finally created the world’s first 15-calorie tortilla, with only one net gram of carbohydrates. The low-carb tortillas became a hit and a staple in the low-carb/keto community. Mr. Tortilla has since become the #1 best-selling tortilla online and one of the fastest-growing companies in Southern California.
