It seems like just yesterday that we saw our name in Sports Illustrated magazine. Here’s a photo of the page where Joe Beimel gave us our first nationwide shout out. Back when the issue first dropped we were thrilled that he liked our salsa. Today we can hardly believe that he’s now part of the Chico Posse and working with us to help spread the Chico love to clubhouses across the nation.

Thanks Joe!

Where’s the Chico?

We have received numerous requests from our faithful Chico fans asking “Where’s the Chico?”  As you know, Sprouts and Henry’s Farmers Markets have merged to become one great store and now have over 100 stores carrying Chicospico Salsa. As part of the process they have moved Chicospico salsa to the “Deli Side” of their stores with all the other salsa campers.  Thanks again for thinking of us! We’ll keep those Chico salsa barrels heading your way!
