History

Andrés and María Cárdenas came to California over 50 years ago from the state of Jalisco, Mexico. He sought out the opportunity to excel through hard work. It was through his hard work and perseverance that he was able to accomplish what he did. He worked first in the fields, then as a laborer and later established his own business. They proudly raised a family of eleven children, instilling in them the same values of hard work and discipline. The family grew up in a modest home in Pacoima, California. Andrés and María continuously supported their children and encouraged them to succeed. They were fortunate enough to see their sons and daughters earn degrees in many fields, such as education, psychology and engineering.
