“We exist to create memorable experiences for our guests,
a better life for our team members and a sense of hope for our community.”


Mercado Rita's is a sister company to 5 other businesses. Rita's on the River, the parent company, resides on the River Walk Level and hosts millions of visitors every year for lunch, dinner and special events. Our souvenir shop, Bonita Rita's, is also on River Level connected with Justin's Ice Cream, our ice cream shop with delicious handmade desserts. Pizzarita's is located next door to us on Street Level where you can enjoy a fresh slice of pizza or hot wings. Above all lies a 4 story events venue called Rio Plaza which hosts over 200 events every year. We strive to provide excellent service and unforgettable experiences for our guests. We stay involved within the community by volunteering with local organizations, donating to pet rescues, reaching out with a Rita's Hug every month to our first responders and in any way possible. Another part of our mission is to help build a better life for our team members, so they may be successful and fulfill their personal and professional achievements.
