The turn of the century brought an expansion of the Latino population, that tended to concentrate on South Wichita. A number of Latino restaurants and grocery shops opened their doors in that area of the city. These included carnicerías (butcher shops), small and medium-size Mexican supermarkets, and small specialty shops catering Central American and South American products, such as El Mercadito Salvadoreño. In 2019 the Kansas-based chain Rio Bravo opened its first store on South Seneca.
