TAPATIO COMMEMORATES 50 YEARS IN BUSINESS. A collaboration that spans nearly 25 years, Lewis Roca celebrates this monumental accomplishment and our longstanding relationship with Tapatio Foods.
Founded in Southern California in 1971, family-run business Tapatio Foods LLC (“Tapatio”) is celebrating its 50th year in business. The household name, most known for its popular hot sauce, has worked tirelessly over the past five decades to build and solidify its brand and reputation as one of America’s favorite hot sauces. To commemorate this significant achievement and share in the milestone with its loyal and valued customers, Tapatio launched a special line of 50th-anniversary products, including various consumer goods as well as its famous hot sauce, all of which can be purchased online.
Lewis Roca is proud to work alongside such an accomplished company and is continually inspired by the hard work and dedication Tapatio has to its products and customers. Having represented Tapatio for more than two decades, intellectual property partner Anne Wang has been instrumental in protecting Tapatio’s intellectual property rights during the tremendous growth in popularity of the Tapatio brand within the United States, Central, and South America, and during the expansion of its product line from hot sauce to other food products and consumer novelty goods. Further, with a rise in infringement actions over the past five years, intellectual property partners Gary Nelson and Drew Wilson have been essential in leading Tapatio’s brand protection and enforcement efforts.
We are grateful for our continued partnership with Tapatio and look forward to collaborating for many years to come.
