The Boss Lady
Small and mighty. The one that keeps us grounded, humble and moving forward. She also regulates our working hours, holidays, vacations, free-time, sleeping time and everything in between.
'Panza' is an endearing term for belly in Spanish. You'll often hear 'Panza llena, corazón contento', meaning full belly, happy heart. We got the idea for the name during a Facetime conversation with our young newphews in Puerto Rico.
The Panza began in Colorado in 2019 in our home's basement. We were at a crossroad in life and wanted a new start. The need and the want led us to re-invented a classic family guava recipe and took the entrepeneurial leap of faith.
By mid 2022 we had outgrown our CO facility and wanted to be closer to family. We packed it all and drove from the Rocky Mountains to the Boca beaches. We are proud to state that The Panza truly is a family enterprise (& adventure), but we wouldn't change a thing about it.
