Xcaret Mexican Restaurant was founded in August of 2001 by Pedro and Maria Torres. Pedro and Maria are originally from La Piedad, a small town located NorthWest of the Mexican State of Michocan, bordering Jalisco and Guanajuato. Xcaret, pronounced Ish-ka-ret and which means little inlet, is an eco-archeological park located in the Riviera Maya, Quintana Roo Mexico. This privileged area in the Mayan jungle faces the Caribbean Sea, where you can find underground rivers & cenotes. Long ago, native Mayans used to arrive on their canoes after a sea journey. Now Xcaret Mexican Restaurant is ran by Luis Perez, Luz Ramirez, Liset Torres & newest member, chef Jose Valdez.
Being life long entrepreneurs in the food industry, Pedro and Maria decided to venture to the United States for their next adventure and knew it would bring them more opportunities. They were invited to Ohio by some of their family members who already resided in the state and began searching for a town with no Mexican restaurant. The traveled across the state and eventually drove through the great city of Tiffin. As they continued to explore Tiffin, many things attracted them to set up shop here. Some of their favorites being the Tiffin Glass Museum & Shoppe, the history of William Harvey Gibson, Heidelberg University & Tiffin University, the different factories and growing industrial opportunities, and Mercy Hospital.
