Welcome to Trinity Empanadas & More

About Us


I'm Sol Petti-Willis. I am the owner of Trinity Empanadas & More. We are a family owned and operated business here in the Trinity Florida area. If you pay close attention we are abbreviated TEAM. And for good reason. I have an amazing Husband Jimmie Willis who also helps with the business, so we really are in this together, as a TEAM. I don't know what I would do without him. Together we strive to bring a bit of my family culture here to Trinity, and at Trinity Empanadas and More, we are very passionate about not only the bringing out the quality in our foods, but really getting into the Colombian culture around it as well. In the near future you can expect to see our product line stocked in freezers across the country in your local supermarkets. We will also be offering a catering service. Our passion is to bring our culture here to you.  We look forward to supplying you with our World Famous Empanadas and More.

How it all Began

Our story began many years ago in Cali, Colombia.  My family headed by our parents Evaristo and Sofia Luengas and including my seven siblings lived in a modest barrio ( neighborhood ).  We learned the value of family, hard work and honesty from our parents and grandparents.  

Over the years my sister, Esperanza, learned how to make amazing Colombian empanadas from our mother, Sofia.  We all loved our mother's empanadas.

In 1981 when my husband Ralph and I brought our son and daughter to the United States I really missed the flavors of our Colombian foods.  Over the next twenty years all of my sisters and brothers immigrated here as well as my parents.  Of course our entire family loved when Esperanza would make her Colombian empanadas for us.  She also developed a loyal following among our friends and extended families.  With her encouragement, I developed the concept which has become TRINITY EMPANADAS & MORE, LLC.  as of January 2019.

Now, we are positioned to share the flavors and culture of our Colombian heritage with so many people.  We are building a legacy of true Colombian cooking while building a wide network of friends in our new nation.  We are proud to be of Colombian descent and blessed to be accepted into this great nation.
