A commitment to excellence, strategic leadership and willingness to change and diversify has been the recipe to success for Burgos Group, LLC.  Brothers, Mario and David Burgos, have led their company to significant growth, earning recognition as the top company in New Mexico’s Flying 40 for fast-growing tech companies and named three years in a row on Inc.’s 5000.

Marty’s Meals, Inc. was established by Sandra Bosben, who adopted Marty, a six-month old Rottweiler mix with a lot of health issues.  Sandra fed Marty the most nutritious food available and administered all of the medications prescribed by his vet. By the time he was four, he had major surgery for joint failure. Although the surgery seemed to help, he did not recover as well as was hoped for his age. As Sandra researched ways to rehab Marty, she met an animal bodywork specialist who, in turn, introduced her to a renowned animal nutritionist. Together, they developed a couple of simple recipes for Marty.  This was the beginning of Sandra’s journey learning about pet nutrition and wellness in her own kitchen.

By 2010, Sandra was cooking up small batches of dog food for Marty and pets of family and friends.  She saw a marked improvement in Marty’s health and positive results in the other dogs.                                     

When Sandra’s previous employment fell to... Read More

In 2001, Rick sought the assistance of the Small Business Development Center (... Read More
