The original Casa Olé Mexican Restaurant was opened in December 1973 in Pasadena, Texas, by founder Larry Forehand. A second restaurant opened in Houston, Texas, in 1976. The restaurants were such a success that in 1978 Casa Olé Franchise Services, Inc. was established. Hou-Mex Foods Inc., Bennie Hair President, became Casa Ole Franchise Services' first franchisee opening a Houston area Casa Olé Restaurant.
In 1983 a second Hou-Mex Foods Casa Olé was opened in Longview, Texas, on Loop 281.
Hou-Mex Foods currently operates four Casa Olé Restaurants with two locations in Longview and two in Tyler, Texas.
