Mi Ranchito History

It all started in the kitchen when the Armenta family came to Utah from Guanajuato, Mexico.  Mama brought with her the wonderful recipes that have been in the family for generations.  A blend of secret ingredients & strict attention to freshness and quality have been the foundation of the tradition of good cooking you will find at Mi Ranchito. 

It was Mom & Dad, though, who had the idea to involve the whole family and create a truly special restaurant.  The entire Armenta family pitched in and helped in the first Mi Ranchito restaurant when it opened in Orem, Utah back in 1983.  Manuel and Senorina Armenta eventually shared the responsibility of running Mi Ranchito with their sons and daughters.  Each restaurant is under the personal care of a family member, guaranteeing that the family recipes are followed very closely. 

Today Mi Ranchito is still a family business; family owned, family operated and family loved.
