It all started in the mid-1970’s when Atlanta butcher Charley Sweat, who was already selling a special taco spice mix at the city’s Municipal Market, started providing fresh cut meats to local Hispanic restaurants. Sweat conducted business with honesty, dedication, and hard-work.
The company then evolved to include the manufacture and distribution of a wide range of Hispanic-style foods. By the 1990s Kachwa had become an USDA meat processor and FDA dairy manufacturer and distributor. Renamed Gordo’s after their signature queso cheese product, the company continued to add easy-melt cheese products, packaged meats, spices, peppers, beverages, specialty sauces, and mixes and non-food products to their manufacturing and distribution capabilities. Gordo’s queso dip has become the leading prepared queso dip in retail grocery stores across the nation.
Today, Gordo’s Foodservice, part of Gordo’s LLC, is a member of the Chairmans Foods family of companies. After almost four decades, Gordo’s still works every day to be your specialist for Hispanic food and deliver small company service with big company selection.
