[VIDEO] This Family-Run Bushwick Kitchen Makes Over 2,000 Pounds of Mole Per Day

Mole Poblano Asunción Corp is a family-run business in Bushwick, Brooklyn, that makes over 2,000 pounds of delicious Mexican Mole sauce for restaurants, supermarkets, and other suppliers all around New York City. Learn more about the company, and the family that runs it, in this short video from our friends at Great Big Story.

Back in the 1970s, Damiana Bravo’s Brooklyn kitchen smelled like mole all day, every day. Recently arrived from Puebla, Mexico, she sold the special sauce to coworkers craving a taste of home. As word of Damiana’s culinary magic spread, the orders got bigger and bigger. Now, decades later, Damiana, her daughter and granddaughter cook up nearly 2,000 pounds of mole a day at Mole Poblano Asunción Corp. Made from a family recipe and infused with loved, the mole brings a bit of Puebla to supermarkets, bodegas and restaurants all over the New York City tri-state area.
