Posted

After moving to Fort Stockton a year ago to work in the oil field, oen couple decided to open a business in the downtown area.

Jennifer Flores and Rafael Guerrero open Snack Attack and More on Oct. 25 and have been offering the Mexican snacks that they love and couldn't find in town.

The couple is from Laredo, Tx and have been adjusting to a slower small town life.

They noticed the lack of some of their favorite snacks and after making them for friends and family they decided to open a business.

“We asked around and people wanted these foods,” said Flores.

They sell things like Nachos, Mexican corn, crazy apples, Mexican hotdogs, Fresas con crema and tosti-elote.

The Mexican corn is a crowd favorite which features corn, mayonnaise, cheese, lemon and chili or the crazy apple which has tamarindos, chili powder and anything from the candy bar.

As first time business owners, it is stressful but they hope people come and try their snacks and make it a successful venture.

“I promise you wont be disappointed if you come and visit us,” said Flores. “Try something new, you will like it.”

Between the business and raising six kids, Snack Attack won the best driving float in the 2019 Christmas Parade.

They do giveaways on their facebook page and are featured on the Fort Stockton Downtown Association facebook page regularly which they say has helped their visibility.

“They help send people in,” said Flores.

Snack Attack and More is located at 103 W. 1st Street and can be reached at (803) 243-8351.

They are open Tuesday to Thursday from 3 p.m. to 7 p.m., Friday and Saturday from 3 p.m. to 9 p.m. and Sundays from 3 p.m. to 8 p.m.
