and is the designated cake decorator
for fondant cakes. Her uncle Jose also
decorates cakes.
The business was founded by the
four Rodriguez brothers: Francisco
(Paco), Marcelino, Jose and Salustio.
Each brother has their own area of
responsibility. Gladys’ grandfather
owned a bakery called “Nuestro Pan
de Cada Día” (Our Daily Bread) in
San Luis Potosi, Mexico, where
Paco learned to bake breads as an
intern. “That’s where it all started,”
Gladys says. In May 2003, the four
brothers opened Paco’s Bakery in
Houston, and they continued to
build a steady business. A year ago,
sales had grown so much that they
needed a larger new building, so
they moved to their current location
a year ago in June.
Paco’s Bakery is widely known
for its delicious sweet breads and
finely decorated cakes. In addition
to conchas, bolillos and empanadas, the
bakery sells popular items such as
bread pudding, cheesecakes, orejas and
marranitos. They also make a variety of
decorated cupcakes, which are gaining
huge popularity.
Fondant cakes are especially
popular here, which is testament to
their ability to reach out to a wide
customer base. Paco’s bakery supplier,
BakeMark, is instrumental in keeping
them attuned to current trends in
the marketplace and providing the
bakery with innovative products such
as BakeSense Rolled Fondant. “I really

like the taste and the way you work
with their fondant,” she says.
As the business looks to the future,
Gladys says they are busy promoting
their bakery through their website and
on Facebook, which they started using
in 2010. “With Hispanics, Facebook
is growing more and more,” she says.
“We are growing in the amount of
Facebook fans we have. People can
see whatever you have available
online, and if somebody sees it and
likes it, they immediately tell all of
their friends. We’ll see customers take

pictures of their bread or cake in the
store, and you’ll see them uploading it
immediately. They want to share what
they’re getting at that exact moment.”
This type of customer interaction is extremely valuable to Paco’s
Bakery, which is now exploring other
social media options like Twitter and
Instagram. “Then you can promote
your business instantly,” Gladys says.
Throughout its 10 years in business, Paco’s Bakery has always adapted
to changing times and prepares itself
for the future.
