The International Chili Society (ICS) is pleased to announce El Yucateco as the Official Hot Sauce of the ICS and the 56th World Championship Chili Cook-off in Myrtle Beach, S.C., Sept. 29 - Oct. 1, 2023.
“Hot sauce and chili go hand-in-hand,” said Mike McCloud. “We’re happy to have El Yucateco back on board for this year’s event and as the Official Hot Sauce of ICS.”
Founded in 1968 as a small family business devoted to making quality habanero hot sauces, El Yucateco is now a leading producer of fiery and flavorful sauces that are available at retailers globally. Spin365 Marketing, a subsidiary of The Padilla Group, is exclusively responsible for El Yucateco’s brand marketing, sales, and public relations in North America.
“This is a great opportunity for the El Yucateco brand to shine as the Official Hot Sauce of the World Championship Chili Cook-off. El Yucateco has a wide variety of hot sauces that are the perfect blend of flavor and heat for food sport enthusiasts to use in their recipes and with their favorite foods,” said John Meyer, Vice-President at Spin365 Marketing.
As the Official Hot Sauce sponsor, El Yucateco will provide hundreds of professional chili cooks at WCCC56 with various samples that they can also include in their championship chili recipes.
