MegaMex Foods is keeping its guac and salsa executives in Orange for the foreseeable future.
The Mexican food maker and subsidiary of Hormel Foods has extended its lease for 15,830 square feet. MegaMex added 3,167 square feet to its headquarters atop the TriCentre office tower, which sits practically inside the snarl of freeways known as the Orange Crush.
The company, which has called the 10-story building home since 2011, and owner Stanton Road Capital declined to provide terms of the lease.
MegaMex was bought by Herdez del Suerte and Hormel in a joint venture in 2009. The company makes and distributes the brands Herdez, Wholly Guacamole and La Victoria, to name just a few, which are sold in grocery stores across Southern California and the U.S.
Stanton Road Capital said it has put significant improvements into the office building since the firm bought it in 2019.
Recent projects include a renovated lobby and outdoor courtyard, which can be used as a second working space for tenants. Modernizing the the elevators is also in the works.
