Filipino Hawaiian Food

A little bit about Filipino Hawaiian Food: “Elaine and her husband Basil Welch have been in the food business since 1998. Their first restaurant specialized in savory Filipino food in Albuquerque, NM. Since then, they have progressed in food concessions during events such as the New Mexico State Fair. 

Our daughter-in-law, Amber Cecil is our baker who has more than 8 years of experience in baking cookies to creating wedding cakes in Albuquerque, NM.

With our family team, our love for Hawaiian and Filipino cuisine, “Filipino Hawaiian Food” was born.” 

Here’s what people are saying about them:

“I’d never had Hawaiian Filipino food before, and my partner — who lived in Hawaii for a decade — took me here. So delicious and what a friendly couple who runs this place. We will definitely be back when we are in town again.” – Review from Wildfire Tina

Richie B’s Pizza, Subs & Salads

Here’s some of the history of Richie B’s that we found on their website:

Richie B’s Pizza is a “Mom & Pop” pizza shop locally owned and operated by Chuck and Leah Ruiz. They have owned Richie B’s since April 2019, but their roots in pizza run much deeper.

Chuck was raised in New Mexico and grew up in Hatch. He started his pizza career at the tender age of 14 at a popular pizza chain. He loved the industry from the start. While he worked his way up to management, a dream to one day owns his very own pizzeria rose as well. Little did he know that after six years of nothing but pizza, a new dream would walk through the door.

Leah was born and raised in Iowa but has called New Mexico home for almost 20 years. She knew moving over 1,000 miles away from everything she had known would bring her new experiences, but it soon gave her so much more than she ever could have imagined. She walked into a popular pizza chain to get a job as a delivery driver and found something that would change her life: Chuck.

That was 16 years ago, and the rest, as they say, is history. Leah and Chuck romanced over pizza and wings and soon found themselves inseparable. They’ve now been married for 10 years and have two wonderful daughters. Their lives strayed from pizza for over a decade, but they both knew that dream of a pizzeria was still simmering somewhere in the background of their busy lives.

In 2019, the dream seemed to be proved right before their very eyes, and they decided to take the chance of a lifetime. They formed the Mom and Pop Pizza Shop, LLC, and bought Richie B’s Pizza of Albuquerque. Chuck handles day-to-day operations while Leah handles the business and accounting side of the company. But their favorite moments are when they can run shifts as a couple and be together while serving their customers and getting to know the people of their community.

“I just want to highlight a worker at this Smith’s. I had a pickup order at Smith’s. Their system was down and Charlotte who was in charge of my order calmly handled the situation and was able to go above and beyond to accommodate me. She stayed calm despite I’m sure many upset customers. Great job.” – Sam Garcia

How often does an AC unit need to be serviced?

The Albuquerque AC units are complex machines that keep your home cool in the summer and warm during winter. They require regular maintenance to run efficiently, but if you don’t take care of them they may suffer from reduced performance or even shutting down completely because dirt build-up can affect its operation

A well maintained air conditioning system saves money over time by preventing sudden lapses which could lead into more costly repairs later on.
