Here are 5 things I bet you didn’t know were owned or partially owned by Mexico’s rich and powerful:

  1. Entenmann’s pastries
  2. Thomas’ English Muffins
  3. GE Stoves and Refrigerators (many are made by Mexican companies)
  4. CompUSA
  5. Saks Fifth Avenue

Carlos Slim, according to Forbes magazine, is the third richest man in the world. The crazy thing is that we don’t have Entenmann’s, Thomas’ English Muffins, or any of the other things on the list here in Mexico.

I guess it’s not all tortillas and corn around here after all. What else could be owned by Mexicans that you didn’t know? There’s a lot more than you would think.
