Our Legacy

Ricos: A Legacy of Flavorful Indulgence Since 1909

In the bustling landscape of concession foods, Ricos stands tall as a family-owned business with a rich history dating back to 1909. Our Texan-born company has not only weathered the test of time but has also carved a niche for itself in the competitive market with its delectable offerings, including Ricos Nacho Cheese, Ricos Cheese Sauce, and Ricos Nacho Chips.

The journey of Ricos in the world of concession foods took a groundbreaking turn in 1976 when we introduced our signature concession nachos. Since then, the unmistakable aroma of Ricos Nacho Cheese Sauce has become synonymous with the joyous spirit of entertainment venues, sports arenas, and movie theaters across the globe.

In 1976, the NAC acknowledged us as the pioneers of concession nachos, and in 2009, we joyously commemorated a century of dedicated service.

Numerous misconceptions circulate regarding canned cheese, often categorizing it as fake cheese. It’s important to note that Ricos cheese sauce contains real cheese whey in its ingredients. Through our meticulous aseptic cooking production process, we ensure the cheese’s creaminess and taste but also eliminates the need for preservatives. The cheese is sealed fresh in the can, offering lasting stability to the product.

One of the star attractions in our repertoire is our Original Nacho Chips. Crafted with precision, these chips boast a thickness that goes beyond the ordinary. This strategic design is aimed at providing strength to each chip, ensuring it can bear the weight of generous toppings without succumbing to sogginess. The variable curvature of the chip is a stroke of genius, allowing consumers to enjoy a perfect bite with every scoop of Ricos Nacho Cheese or any other delectable dip.

Ricos Concession Food is not just a product; it’s a testament to our commitment to creating memorable moments. Whether it’s the thrill of a live game, the excitement of a blockbuster movie, or the camaraderie at a family gathering, Ricos products have become an integral part of these experiences.

The global appeal of Ricos extends beyond the borders of Texas. With a presence in specialty stores, retail outlets, and international channels, Ricos has successfully transcended geographical boundaries. Our nacho concession food has become a global sensation, captivating taste buds and winning hearts worldwide.

The versatility of Ricos products goes beyond the conventional nacho experience. Ricos Cheese Sauce has become a culinary companion for various dishes, adding a touch of indulgence to everything it graces. From enhancing the flavor of favorite meals and dishes to serving as a delightful dip for chips and veggies, Ricos Cheese Sauce has proven its adaptability in the kitchen.

In addition to the iconic Nacho Cheese and Cheese Sauce, Ricos has diversified its offerings to cater to different preferences. The Ricos Tortilla Chips lineup includes a range of options, from classic flavors to bold and spicy varieties, ensuring there’s something for every palate. We even offer pickles. Our Ricos Pickles are sold as single-serve pouches in dill and chamoy flavors. These pickles don’t need refrigeration and boast a shelf life of one year.

Ricos World Famous Nachos feature a topping of pickled jalapeño slices, and all jalapeño products by Ricos undergo the pickling process. This imparts a crisp and zesty taste to the peppers, rendering them delightfully spicy. Available in retail in a convenient resealable 12oz jar.

As a family business deeply rooted in tradition, Ricos continues to evolve while staying true to our founding principles. The commitment to quality, the pursuit of innovation, and the passion for delivering exceptional concession foods remain the driving force behind Ricos’ success.

In a world where trends come and go, Ricos stands as a testament to the enduring appeal of authentic flavors and unwavering commitment to customer satisfaction. For over a century, Ricos has been more than a brand; it’s a culinary journey that brings people together, one nacho at a time.
