Who We Are

It Started With a Green Chile Recipe

What started out as a family Green Chile recipe and an NFL football player is now a staple for thousands across the US!

Former restaurateur David Bloom and 3-time Super Bowl champion offensive lineman Mark Schlereth (aka “Stink”) began as casual acquaintances. David started a landscaping company after his restaurant days and would regularly handle Mark’s yard work while he was playing football. One day, David brought Mark his green chile recipe that he had perfected over the years. Mark immediately fell in love with it, and later agreed to put his name on it and became the co-owner with David and got it on the shelves in Colorado grocers

“We wanted it to taste just as good out of the container as it was when David made it fresh at home, putting it in a can or jar just wasn’t an option.” David actually gave up at one point because of obstacles but Mark encouraged David to keep going and offered the capital that was needed to get it on the shelves.
