In 1983, the family-owned BEA'S® brand of chicharrónes got its start from my mother's (Beatrice's) kitchen at BEA'S Mexican food restaurant on the southside of San Antonio, TX. (Not to be confused for any BEA'S Mexican food restaurant that may be in San Antonio today or elsewhere.) After years in the restaurant industry, my father took a chance and started offering a favorite Mexican fried pork snack and classic Mexican food ingredient to carnicerías/meat markets that they no longer needed to make... chicharrónes.
Within a few years of having the BEA'S brand of chicharrónes in grocery stores, in carnecerías/meat markets, in convenience stores, in bars and other-- new brands of chicharrónes popped up even more. Some brands from out of state. But, as more and more Texans began to love our signature pork cracklins it was time to move product manufacturing into a Safe Food Quality Level III U.S.D.A. daily inspected facility where our legacy continues and our fan base still grows. Thank you!
