The Jefe’s



Ryan “El Jefe” Lopez

Co-Owner and Sauce Master Ryan Lopez was born on the mean streets of Commerce City. He spent his childhood playing video games and watching bad horror and kung fu films. After having two mini Lopez’s he joined the world of IT to make ends meet. After years of climbing the IT ladder he saw a movie called Chef and decided to take a leap. He now spends his days slinging tots and experimenting in his kitchen creating new hot sauces.


Renee “La Jefa” Ruybal

Co-Owner and Potato Crusher Renee Ruybal also was born on the mean streets of Commerce City. She spent her childhood breaking hearts and rocking out at concerts. She has spent the last 12 years helping children with eye issues. After months of being badgered and begged she gave in and approved El Jefe’s to be born. She is the engineer of our brilliant process and recipe for our tater tots. She is and always will be the Queen of Tots.
