This is the Albuquerque Business Podcast with your host Jason Rigby. Each week we interview leading local business leaders to inspire the vision and the spirit that is in every entrepreneur. We discuss strengths, weakness, strategies, systems and the problems we can all solve together to fulfill a shared vision of a new future for Albuquerque.
Special Guests today own Nuevo. It is the creation of Eric and Jordan Smith. Eric and Jordan met in Albuquerque in 2004 and later married. Eric, grew up in New Mexico, attended Los Lunas High School and went to college at Eastern New Mexico University. Eric has been enjoying the food of NM his whole life!
Jordan, however, discovered her love of NM food later in life. She was recruited to play women’s basketball for the University of New Mexico. Then she was known as Jordan Adams, a name that is now legendary in Lobo history. She won multiple MVP awards, broke countless records and led the Lady Lobos to the Sweet 16! Jordan fell in love with the people and culture (including the food) of NM and they fell in love with her!
Eric and Jordan both traveled the world and discovered that it was difficult to find their favorite New Mexican food outside of the state. They decided to solve that problem and founded Nuevo, a subscription food box for New Mexican food!
