Our story

Matthew Pipis and Scott Henderson bought Hey Juan Burritos in May of 2018

After moving to Arcata, CA in 2008, Matthew attended Humboldt State University until graduating in 2012. He would frequently eat at Hey Juan burritos and was a happy customer who just so happened to have a passion for cooking, as well as business and self-employment. While Scott was a cook at Mad River Brewery, they were introduced by a mutual friend and immediately became buds.

Their shared passion for cooking led them to enter the 2018 Big Brothers, Big Sisters chili cook-off where they won 1st place with their famous "Netflix and Chili" chili recipe. Just months later they found out about the opportunity to buy Hey Juan Burritos and quickly made an agreement with the previous owner to procure the iconic restaurant.

The locally famous restaurant from 1982 is kept alive as a staple of the Humboldt County community though investment, hard work, and fortitude. They are proud to be able to serve their community and look forward to a bright future of serving fresh, flavorful food.
