Cimarron Express was voted best convenience store in the 2013 Best of the Best competition

Cimarron Express was voted best convenience store by readers of the Advocate in the 2013 Best of the Best competition.

Fresh baked goods, a neighborhood-centric location and longtime employees are the key ingredients of the Cimarron Express' success.

Sandra Valdez, store manager, has been at the store's helm for the last 10 years.

"It's a neighborhood store so it really hasn't changed," Valdez said. "It's a family-oriented atmosphere. If it's not broke, why fix it?"

Maintaining a clean facility and busy bakery make the convenience store shine from all the rest.

"I have a very good team," Valdez said. "We work together really well, we don't have a big turnover rate."
