Mark Schlereth’s “Stinkin” Good Green Chile has a humble
beginning. David Bloom’s landscaping
company mowed Mark’s lawn for him since 2000.
Over time the two got to know one another. One day David brought over his favorite
family recipe for Green Chile and Mark fell in love with it. Mark told David that he should sell it in
stores. Going against the odds and opinions of others, David set out to make
his dream a reality. With $10,000 of
hard earned money in the bank, he found a commercial kitchen, developed the
packaging, got USDA approval and perfected his recipe. He was at the end of his money and all he had
going for him was the approval and encouragement of his close friend,
Mark. He took the finished product to
Mark and said, “You keep telling me I should market it, so are you ready to put
your name and face on it?”

Well, Mark agreed to do just that! The “Stinkin” Good Green Chile hit the
shelves of King Soopers and City Market Stores in May 2008. Now the Chile is sold in more than 300 stores in
Colorado. It has become the official
green chile of Coors Field, Pepsi Center and all of Aramark’s concessions in Colorado. You can also find our Chile served in the
Original Pancake House restaurants in Colorado, Oregon and Washington. Most recently, it was added to Black-eyed
Pea Colorado and Mile High Stadium. All of our products are now GLUTEN and
