Margarita Alvarez Flores, Owner of the French Pastry Cafe & More, has been recognized by Marquis Who’s Who Top Business Owners for dedication, achievements, and leadership in the culinary arts.

With unparalleled expertise in baking delicious desserts, Ms. Alvarez Flores has found success as the owner French Pastry Café and More since 2018.

Ms. Alvarez Flores first became involved in her profession after immigrating to the United States from Mexico in 2005. She arrived with no culinary knowledge beyond her native Mexican cuisine, but began to learn the art of baking French pastries from the former owner of her restaurant, under whom she worked for more than a decade. Impressed with the breadth of her knowledge, he sold her the restaurant upon his retirement. In accounting for her standout success, Ms. Alvarez Flores credits the joy she feels with every satisfied customer, as well as her propensity for learning a new lesson every day.

Ms. Alvarez Flores’ achievements have largely been driven by her customers and love for the act of baking delightful food. Looking toward the future, she hopes to improve upon her current recipes, expand the scope of her business to accommodate more patrons at once and buy a house for the family she has forged in America. Ms. Alvarez Flores is married to her loving husband, Federico Mercado, who works alongside her at French Pastry Café. Together, they are the proud parents of three children; Eddie, Kenya and Monica.
