A Family Affair
When Peruvian native Luis Ferro arrived in the U.S. nearly 30 years ago, he spent a number of years working for others until he and his wife Claudia realized they could provide better for their family working for themselves. They started their own aviation brokerage company, and later started investing in real estate. Now they are diversifying their business portfolio and building a business that will involve the whole family. Luis and Claudia will be joined at their first Kolache Factory store by their daughter and son, and eventually their 13-year-old too.
“This business belongs to our family and we are big on family. Eventually, we will open three stores (in Katy) and one day, each child can have their own store to run,” explained Ferro of his long-term plans. “We looked at several franchises, but we really liked that this was a family-oriented business that serves a unique and high-quality product.”
Kolache Factory Chief Operating Officer Dawn Nielsen is excited to welcome the Ferro/Gold family into the Kolache family fold.
“We love that Luis and Claudia want to build Kolache Factory into a family business for themselves just like my mother and father did 38 years ago. Their enthusiasm and commitment to this community and the brand will be a great asset, and it will be fun to watch them grow right in our backyard.”
This is the 62nd Kolache Factory store for the Katy-based national franchise.
About the Kolache Factory
Kolache Factory was founded in 1982 in Houston, Texas, by John and Jerri Banks, who identified a need for a fresh, high-quality breakfast that could be eaten “on the run.” The Bankses encouraged consumers to try the high-quality, fresh pastries filled with fruits, meat and cheeses and soon they were in high demand for business meetings, family breakfasts, on-the-go lunches and afternoon snacks. Kolache Factory has been recognized as one of the Top 5 Drive-Thrus in America by Food Network, one of the fastest-growing companies in Houston and one of the top 50 foodservice bakeries in the United States by Modern Baking magazine. In addition, Franchise Times magazine recently named Kolache Factory one of the 300 biggest brands in franchising by worldwide sales in 2017. In addition, Entrepreneur magazine named it among the top 200+ food-based franchises in 2018. Kolache Factory is privately owned and operated and headquartered in Katy, Texas.
