San Francisco Landmarks
Casa Sanchez, the first mechanized tortilla factory in San Francisco, was founded by Roberto and Isabel Sanchez in 1924 as a popular Mexicatessen. The Casa Sanchez company is the longest-operating tamale and tortilla factory in San Francisco. The family-owned business opened its restaurant at 2778 24th Street in 1968.
Casa Sanchez is located in the Calle 24 Latino Cultural District, established by the San Francisco Board of Supervisors in 2014 to recognize the corridor’s significance to local Latino culture and commerce./p>
