Our History 


Founder and Owner of Economy Upholstery, "Chalío" Ortega, is originally from the state of Guerrero, Mexico.

In 1975 Chalío arrived in the city of Round Rock, TX at the age of 17.  

Back then it was only a small town with a population of a little less than 3,000 friendly people. He could see back then how this place would be a good opportunity to plant roots and to do something bigger in his life. 


Chalío's first job in America was in a upholstery factory in Austin.

He soon realized that doing upholstery was a skill and an art, an art that he came to be very passionate about. With every day and every year that passed he kept learning and acquiring the skills needed to excel in the trade.

Along with that came the desire and dream to one day have and own his own upholstery shop. In November of 2013, Chalío was blessed with the opportunity to start up Economy Upholstery. 

With God leading the way, his family along side, and with 40 plus years of experience in the trade, the goal is to leave every customer happy and satisfied by putting 101% into everything that is done here at Economy Upholstery. 


Our goal is to provide you with top service, top quality, at an affordable price, every single time.
