¡Yo Quiero! Brands, a Texas based company, has announced the opening of its new 45,000 square foot distribution facility in Rhome, Texas as well as a brand new, state of the art facility in Guanajuato, Mexico.
The foodie-centric brand, focusing on small-batch guacamole, salsa and queso products is making moves in the avocado and high pressure pasteurization industries.
Inspiration for the company came decades ago, when a Texas restauranteur discovered his talent for creating delicious guacamole and wanted to bring it to market. He worked diligently at becoming the pioneer and leader in the high-pressure pasteurization process and brought a team of specialists on board including Vice President of Sales, Jay Alley. The resulting all-natural guacamole product was a hit with consumers when it launched in grocery stores across the nation. Over the years, the team built and created 10 labels in the retail marketplace with distribution in the majority of grocery chains nationwide.
Today the visionaries behind these trusted brands have come together under ¡Yo Quiero! Brands. Comprised of a team of industry leaders and innovators in packaged avocado and guacamole, ¡Yo Quiero! is led by Alley alongside partners Jeff Morris, Clyde Forbes, Steve Parnell and Don Bowden. The team is rounded out by Tara Murray, Chief Marketing Officer.
With a focus on selecting the finest all-natural ingredients to create a line of handcrafted guacamole, salsa and queso, ¡Yo Quiero! commands the guacamole, salsa and queso categories, bringing established private-label contracts and state of the art manufacturing and distribution facilities to the table.
“Since day one, we’ve all had a passion for developing exciting products with healthy ingredients. Combine that with a family-focused culture and innovative team and you’ve got a recipe for success,” said Alley.
¡Yo Quiero! Brands’ authentic Mexican flavors and Texas traditions continue to be a winning combination in the market. The current product line up includes: Super Chunky Avocado, Avocado Salsa, Queso and Salsa as well as DIY tableside kits and snack size. ¡Yo Quiero! plans to announce forthcoming products and partnerships later in the year.
