Husband and wife team Jesus and Luz Cardenas took a gamble and ended up in hog heaven. The Cardenas family got its start as hog farmers in Corona, California, but in 1979 they sold off their farm and opened their first supermarket, primarily geared toward the Hispanic population in the region. Today, Cardenas Markets operates a chain of about 25 grocery stores in Southern California that cater to Hispanic shoppers, with a wide variety of products from Mexico and Central and South America. The stores feature extensive meat and produce departments, bakeries, and tortillerias. The company's newest store -- and first outside of California -- opened in Las Vegas, Nevada, in 2009.
