With a start in Monterrey, Santa Catarina, Cancun and Reynosa in 1984, Mr. Botello Sr. saw a need in McAllen that would start his family planting roots here.
Continuing this first-class service to domestic and international clients still is the foundation of Jimmy Santos Inc, dba Santos International.
