¡Yo Quiero! Brands Opens Distribution Facility and Announces Product Line-Up
RHOME, TX - If there’s avocado involved, I want it, and I know many of my fellow consumers feel the same. This is a sentiment that the Texas-based company ¡Yo Quiero! Brands takes to heart. Continuing its mission of providing small-batch guacamole, salsa, and queso products through the avocado and high-pressure pasteurization industries, the company recently 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 the heart of Mexico.
“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 Jay Alley, Vice President of Sales, as he reflected on what differentiates the company.
Inspiration came decades ago, when a Texas restaurateur discovered his talent for creating delicious guacamole and wanted to bring it to the market. He worked diligently at becoming the pioneer and leader in the high-pressure pasteurization process and brought a team of specialists on board, which included Alley. The resulting all-natural guacamole product was a hit with consumers when it launched in grocery stores across the nation. Over the years, this successful 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. Comprising 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! is a leader in these categories, bringing established private-label contracts and state-of-the-art manufacturing and distribution facilities to the table.
According to a press release, ¡Yo Quiero! Brands’ authentic Mexican flavors and Texas traditions continue to be a winning combination in the market. The current product lineup includes: Super Chunky Avocado, Avocado Salsa, Queso, and Salsa as well as DIY tableside kits and snack sizes. ¡Yo Quiero! plans to announce forthcoming products and partnerships later in the year.
