At a factory in Kansas City’s East Bottoms, a conveyor belt spits out roughly 2,500 warm tortillas an hour. They’re made from yellow, blue and red corn.
The yellow corn tortilla is so flavorful, says Marissa Gencarelli, it’s like, “corn punching you in the face.”
Marissa and her husband, Mark Gencarelli, launched their Yoli Tortilleria business about eight months ago. Marissa, who is originally from Mexico, wanted corn tortillas that were close to what she grew up eating.
