Ricos Products: The Liberto Family Legacy Behind Snack Foods

San Antonio, TX (April 23, 2024) – In 1909, the Liberto Family laid the cornerstone of a Texas legacy when Rosario “Frank” Liberto relocated the Crescent Market to San Antonio, birthing the iconic Liberto Market and Grocery. Over the years, the family business evolved, culminating in the creation of Ricos Products Co. in 1976 by third-generation owner, Frank Liberto, sparking the nacho revolution with his invention of Concession Nachos.

Today, Ricos Products remains firmly rooted in family values and a commitment to delivering savory snacks to customers worldwide. Led by President and CEO Tony Liberto, the fourth generation of the Liberto family, and Director of Marketing Megan MacDiarmid, the fifth generation, Ricos continues to innovate and expand its product line, offering a tantalizing array of nachos, tortilla chips, and flavored popcorn.

As Liberto Speciality’s anniversary, Liberto Specialty stands as a beacon of quality in the snack food industry. From cheese sauces to ready-to-eat popcorn, their products grace the shelves of grocery stores, movie theaters, stadiums, and arenas across the United States and in over 60 countries worldwide.

Ricos’ legacy as the “Originator of Concession Nachos” endures, with their iconic snack now a staple in sports parks, movie theaters, and entertainment venues globally. Moreover, their retail solutions bring the same delicious offerings enjoyed at events straight to consumers’ homes, offering a taste of the stadium experience wherever they may be.
