De Leon Foods, a popular Mexican grocery store and Mexican restaurant / deli from North Spokane is branching out once more with plans to open a second location. De Leon's has leased and now working on opening a location in Spokane Valley at 15530 E. Sprague Ave.
The new Spokane Valley location will be in the Hancock Fabrics storefront nearby the high traffic corner of Sprague & Sullivan. This new location will also provide convenience to De Leon's shoppers coming from North Idaho in addition to the Valley. Hancock Fabrics relocated last year from this space to a space on E. Broadway last year.
The new location will offer about 17,000 square feet of space and have much of the same things as the North Spokane location. The Northside location will also remain open for business at 102 E. Francis even after the one opens. The new Valley location is expected to be opening around mid to late Summer although and exact date has yet to be set.
The new De Leon's will create about 10-15 new jobs and will have positions opening up in all areas. This new location will feature a Mexican grocery store, Mexican bakery , Mexican restaurant and a tortilla manufacturer .
De Leon's Foods make their own tortilla's locally and even uses locally produced Shepard's Grain wheat. In fact their tortilla's play a role in their expansion as the business tells me they are seeing...
" big demand for our locally made tortillas, chips, salsas, tamales and our specialty grocery items"
