For the Escamillas, baking runs in the family, as far back as the 1920's when Elias Escamilla Jr. worked along side his father in a large bakery shop called Alamo Baking Company. It was here that Elias got his start baking and selling delicious breads and pastries and decided to open his own bakery, Pastryland Bakery. Elias saved on operating costs by becoming a self taught repairman for his own baking equipment as well as designing and repairing equipment for various bakery establishments.

Fresh Tortillas made by BE&SCO Flour Tortilla Machines using MINOM a premium flour tortilla base. In 1965 Elias, with the help of his son, Robert decided to devote himself to his true interest, the refurbishing and designing of bakery equipment and established Bakery Equipment & Service Company. His flour tortilla machines were well received in the Mexican market place which flourished until the Great Peso Devaluation in the late 1970's.

It was in the mid 1970's that Robert ventured into designing tortilla machines for restaurant use. The Escamillas successfully spread sales of tortilla equipment across growing U.S. and overseas markets where Mexican food was quickly becoming as standard fare as hamburgers and pizza.

BE&SCO is still family owned and being run by Robert Escamilla, spreading the mechanical rhythm of BE&SCO's high quality flour tortilla equipment, capturing the interest of restaurant and grocery patrons as far as Europe, Taiwan, Canada and South Africa.
