Patricia, Alejandro Gutierrez bring tried-and-true recipes to downtown Troutdale.

The family behind the original Wood Village Burrito Shop have expanded the reach of their Mexican food to the latest location in the heart of downtown Troutdale.

Owners Patricia and Alejandro Gutierrez held a grand opening for their Troutdale shop location on Monday, May 16. The Gutierrez's third shop is situated at 202 E. Historic Columbia River Highway, Suite 100. PMG PHOTO: ANGEL ROSAS  - The Gutierrez family celebrates the recent opening of the Troutdale Burrito Shop.

"Many of our customers would say, 'you guys should really open another one in Troutdale,' so when we had the opportunity to do it, we went for it," Patricia said.

Alejandra, Patricia and Alejandro's daughter and manager of the Troutdale location, said it has been amazing to be so well supported by the community that they can open another shop.

"We started with the first location when I was 16 and I am 21 now, so I grew up seeing the growth of the business," Alejandra said. "Being able to witness us branch out to Gresham and build such loyal customers has been awesome."

Although business at the new location started slow, the Gutierrez family is excited to share with the people of Troutdale the food that has made them such a hit.

"It is just exciting to work in a new location," Alejandra said. "The Wood Village customers are different from the Gresham area, so we are just getting used to the different environment."

At the end of the day, Alejandra said the success of the shops lies on the shoulders of their loyal workers and devoted customers.

"We are here thanks to all of our customers and our workers," Alejandra said. "I mean, a lot of our workers have been with us since Wood Village. We wouldn't be here without that loyalty."
