Tortilla Factory Will Stay In Longview

An East Texas tortilla factory will stay in Longview and expand its operation. Family-owned La Fama Tortilla Factory has been located in Longview since 1982, but after complications with too little water in the area, the company was going to move its location. But, now, they've decided to stay in Longview, reorganize their machines and add on to their building.

The expansion will allow the company to make thousands more tortillas and bring in more jobs to Longview. La Fama President Raul Roel says, "Right now I think the future looks good for a while anyway, until they address those situations and then hopefully we can explore other options."

Although the water problems haven't yet been resolved with the city, owners of the factory say they plan to stay at their current location for now, adding on 50 more positions to their operation.
