OUR STORY

Family Owned Since 1909

The Liberto Family has been in business for more than 100 years! The great-great-grandchildren are now hard at work creating new variations of Americas and the worlds, favorite snack foods… including nachos, tortilla chips and flavored popcorn! These mouthwatering products are sold in the U.S. and in over 50 countries around the world!   Ricos Products Co. is the authentic home of the Game Time Nachos.

In fact the nacho movement started right here in San Antonio, Texas when Frank Liberto invented Concession Nachos in 1976. Nachos were first served at Arlington Stadium. Frank started Ricos Products Co. soon afterwards to keep up with the demand.

You may be surprised to learn that you have been enjoying Ricos nachos, popcorn, and chips for a long, long time. These are the same snacks you ate at your first t-ball game, ate while watching your favorite movies growing up, and kept eating all the way through your high school and college football games.

You continue to eat Ricos products today at the movies when you go watch the latest release, at your kids’ sporting events, when you go cheer on your favorite college or professional team, or even in the comfort of your own home.   Ricos products are available at your favorite stadium, arena, ballpark or movie theater and are also available at your favorite grocery store, mass merchandiser, club store or wherever you buy groceries for you and your family!
