The Hallaca Factory reserves the right to refuse service on any given customer at any given time.
Our fulfillment center is located in Fort Lauderdale, Florida. All orders ship from zip code 33311.

We ship anywhere in the Continental US including Hawaii and Puerto Rico.
We do not ship to Canada or Mexico. We only ship within the USA.

All orders containing perishable items will have $5.00 dollar insulated box and cold packs fee.

We ship on insulated boxes to mantain perishables items at a proper temperature during transit, which in most cases is 2 to 3 days.
Our insulated boxes also contain re-usable gel-packs and in some cases dry ice to maintain products frozen during most of the transit time of the order.
If dry ice applies to your order there will be an additional $5.00 charge.

If you live on Mountain Time, or Pacific Time, we strongly recommend to use the "Express" option instead of the "USPS Priority Mail",
this ensures a much faster, and most important, guaranteed delivery times.

The USPS promises 2nd day on most major metro areas however, they seldom keep their delivery promises, and screw up a lot.
Avoid using this option unless you know your post man very well, and he knows you, and it is not a busy time of the year.
Keep in mind you are ordering food that you are going to be eating at a later time however, the choice is ultimately yours.
(If a mail parcel is delayed, please do not blame it on us. "We warned you"
The previous case doesn't  apply to dry products. If you are only ordering dry good sometimes depending on what it is, the mail service is more convenient than the other services.

It is extremly recommended to refrigerate or freeze upon arrival, cold and frozen products. Whatever the case might be.

We do not ship Thursdays, or Fridays to avoid weekend interruptions.

Orders received late in the week, meaning late on Wednesdays, will be shipped the next following Monday.
In the event that following Monday a holiday is being observed it will then ship on Tuesday.

No Perishables will be shipped to a PO BOX.

please “notify us” by dropping a note on the: “Special Instructions to the Order”

In the event that the customer do not have a mail receptacle or lives on a rural area or a new development, and must have their parcels sent to a PO Box please “notify us” by dropping a note on the: “Special Instructions to the Order”, or if the customer simply don't have a mail recepctacle, please include both addresses, the PO Box number and the Physical Address as well.
