The Story of Granny's Tamales Houston
What started with a family recipe has grown to over eight Granny’s
Tamales stores across the United States, all owned by members of the
Gonzalez Family. Juanita Gonzalez, the 'original' Granny, developed the
recipe for these mouth-watering tamales back in the 1990 and shared the
'oh-so-secret recipe' only with family members. Juanita and her husband, Robert, opened the first Granny’s Tamales shop
in Corpus Christi over 20 years ago. Their legacy has been carried out
by son Daniel and his wife Tina with the opening of a Humble location
over 17 years ago and the addition of a second and third location as
well. Daniel and Tina have been married for over 35 years with three
children, two of whom work with them in the business. Tina left a very
lucrative sales career to come on board full time with business
expanding so rapidly.
“We have really been guided by God in this whole journey. Our favorite quote is ‘putting God first with perseverance and hard work creates success’ Tina adds, giving all glory to God for their huge success. She does add though that they worked long hours and went through plenty of challenges to get where they are now." Starting with only 2 part-time employees and family members helping out, they have grown to multiple full-time and part-time employees and several delivery routes that operate daily.
Ranked as one of the top 10 Tamales in Houston by Fox 26 News, Granny’s Tamales Houston sells a wide variety of tamales and heat levels as well. These aren’t your usual grocery store or restaurant tamales. Granny’s Tamales store offers over a dozen different varieties of gourmet tamales, each and every tamale cooked right here in Humble along with their own version of red or green sauce that comes with every order. Included in their wide variety are 6 different vegetarian options
