About Us

Joy Empanadas is a family-owned and operated business that opened its doors on November 5, 2019. Since opening, it has quickly grown to be a local favorite due to its great selection of empanadas, smoothies, and sandwiches made from the freshest ingredients.

After several years selling empanadas throughout Lawrence as a side hobby, owner Patricia Jorge developed a business concept which eventually became a reality. Today Joy Empanadas is a successful company with strong community support. Patricia aims to expand her brand and spread Joy throughout the country.
