Arepas Always Fresh

Our Company

Living the American Dream… Every Day.

Picture two people who came to America and against all odds, started a family-run business with only their passion, determination, and dreams. Yes, it seems like a Hollywood script, but it’s exactly how Delicias Andinas began over 20 years ago in Queens, New York. It was and still is the only plant in the U.S. solely dedicated to making arepas.

We provided great-tasting arepas, sure. But even more importantly, we were giving people back their cherished memories of a simpler time when their mother or grandmother would make arepas from scratch. Before Delicias Andinas opened its doors, people would spend half their day cooking, grinding, hand-pressing, and cutting just to enjoy that one-of-a-kind taste. Today, you can relax and eat while we put the time, attention, and love into our arepa recipes.

Staying true to our original recipes from 20 years ago, our attention to detail is unmatched. We start by slow cooking our specially selected corn grits. Then we use our own unique grinding process and shape our arepas. Finally we bake our arepas a la perfección without any artificial ingredients. Every day, our products are baked and packaged fresh with the same care and devotion as if we were serving our very first customer.


At Delicias Andinas, we are so committed to using only the freshest of ingredients and making arepas from scratch daily that we built our entire manufacturing process around it. It’s called Lean Manufacturing, where fresh ingredients arrive precisely when we need them. There’s no waste, and you get the freshest arepa possible!

Arepas are taking America by storm! You can now find this versatile food in restaurants, street fairs, in some grocery stores, and now online. You’ve probably even been exposed to arepas on television programs such as the Food Network’s Throwdown with Bobby Flay, Cooking Live with Sara Moulton, Food 911, and Emeril Live.

At Delicias Andinas, we are proud to play a key role in introducing Arepas to America. With each new day, one more father or mother shares an arepa with their child — and starts a family tradition of their own. That’s why we will continue to bake the world’s best arepas. We are forever grateful to all our customers. Gracias for your support.
