New Livable Forest Vendor- Granny’s Tamales LLC

Posted on August 21, 2023

Granny’s Tamales Houston, a family-run chain of stores, has turned a cherished recipe into a national sensation. The ‘original’ Granny, Juanita Gonzalez, crafted the mouth-watering recipe in the 1990s and only shared it within the family.

Juanita and her husband Robert ignited this tamale trend with their first shop in Corpus Christi over two decades ago. Their son Daniel and his wife Tina have since expanded the business, opening locations in Humble, and adding two more. Married for over 35 years, the couple’s two children also contribute to the family enterprise.

Tina, who left a lucrative sales career to fully commit to the rapidly growing business, credits their success to divine guidance, hard work, and perseverance. The journey, filled with long hours and challenges, began with only two part-time employees but has since grown to include a fleet of full-time staff and daily delivery routes.

Granny’s Tamales Houston has even been recognized as one of the top 10 Tamales in the city by Fox 26 News. Their stores offer more than a dozen gourmet varieties, including six vegetarian options, all cooked in Humble. Each order comes with their signature red or green sauce, making them a far cry from ordinary grocery store or restaurant tamales.
