Founding family of Mrs. Renfro's Salsa Honored as 5th Company in the Hall of Fame
FORT WORTH, Texas - Nov. 11, 2019 - Renfro Foods, makers of Mrs. Renfro's Salsa and beloved condiments, has been recognized by Baylor University as an outstanding Texas family business for a fourth time, honored in 2019 as Hall of Fame inductees. The company, which has been previously honored as Texas Family Business of the Year (1993), with the Founders Award (2011), and as Small Family Business of the Year (2015), is now the fifth organization to be inducted into the Institute for Family Business' Hall of Fame.
Desiring to recognize a Texas Family Business of the Year annually, Baylor University's Institute for Family Business founded an awards program more than 30 years ago. The program seeks to recognize multi-generational, family-owned companies who "demonstrate a commitment to each other, to their employees, to the community and to business continuity." Mrs. Renfro's meets the categories desired by the award originators, including community involvement, family involvement and clear business succession.
"Our company, and our family, is excited to be recognized by business educators and peers within our own state," said Doug Renfro, president of Renfro Foods. "Our grandparents founded this company with flavor and family in mind - and we're thrilled to have kept their commitment to good food and a family atmosphere to this day."
