Our story all began with a crazy and kind kid named Luke, who absolutely loved Rhinos so much that he wanted to save them from extinction. Luke would even ask his friends to bring donations to his birthday parties in lieu of gifts.
One day, his mom, Traci, who was famous for her creamy cilantro sauce, had a bright idea; "Let's start selling Diablo Verde to raise even more money to save Rhinos!" It was such a huge hit that Luke's brothers, Ayden and George, joined in to fulfill the family's vision of making the world better through entrepreneurship!
Grand Prize in HEB's Quest for Texas Best
In just under three years the company has won numerous awards, including Grand Champion for HEB’s Quest for Texas Best, raised over $4700 and brought awareness to the issue affecting the rhino species.
Diablo Verde is carried in stores across the country with one located in Honduras!
They have a successful online commerce business, and are expanding their wholesale market nationally. This summer, 3SonsFoods is excited to be launching their newest sauce, Diablo Vegan. Diablo Vegan, is a dairy free, animal free, creamy cilantro sauce that will benefit wolf conservation.
