In 1990, Jose Marquez opened a little store front counter for the growing Mexican community in east Arlington. Twenty-seven years later Marquez Bakery has become an Arlington staple for the community. Marquez is the place hometown regulars and hungry tourists go for good food food and a warm Texas welcome.
Jose's children and grandchildren continue the family tradition of good food and big-hearted hospitality. Marquez Bakery has now grown to include a panaderia, a flour tortilla factory and a restaurant all located in Arlington's Entertainment District.
