My name is Humberto "The Chori-Man" Raygoza, a 4th generation artisan chorizo maker. After years of learning my craft from my Dad and uncles back in Zacatecas, Mexico I decided to start my own business. My journey began in West L.A. and took me to my current brick and mortar in San Pedro, CA.
In March 2013, I launched "The Chori-Man Artisan Chorizos & Sausages." When I first started, I made 100 lbs every three months and sold my product door to door from a little cooler on wheels, which I named The Chori-Mobile. Within the year I increased to 400 lbs a month, and we now sell over a few thousand pounds per month.
