The idea for Mexicana was born from a love and passion for Mexican gastronomy, a gastronomy that for millennia has fed the Mexican people, being declared in 2010 Intangible Cultural Heritage of Humanity by the UNESCO

March 2018. Mexicana Opens Its Doors

Walter Ferrari, a Swiss entrepreneur of Chilean origin, whose family in Santiago de Chile has been involved in Mexican gastronomy for years, decided to explore a concept of Mexican food that would do justice to Mexican gastronomy.


In this way, in March 2018, Mexicana opened its doors for the first time in the city-center of Lausanne.

A partnership between Latin Americans, one, Walter, Swiss-born of Latin American origin and the other, Andrés, Mexican-born of Swiss origin gave it bigger vision and a more ambitious purpose: to develop a true brand that would bring the unique flavors and culture of Mexico to the Swiss population.
