NEW YORK (August 9, 2016) – Tio Gazpacho, award-winning maker of chilled, ready-to-drink vegetable soups, is now available in all Manhattan Whole Food locations, with expanded distribution throughout East Coast including five Shop Rite stores in New Jersey, Dave’s Market Place in Rhode Island, and Gourmet Garage in Manhattan, joining its growing roster of over 300 retail locations. The expansion follows the announcement of Tio Gazpacho’s $1.25M funding round led by General Mills’ 301 INC and unveiling of its newest flavor, Rosado, featuring naturally ripened watermelon with a hint of spice.
“We are overwhelmed by the positive feedback we’ve received from buyers and are incredibly proud to now be available in all Whole Foods locations across Manhattan,” said Austin Allan, Founder and CEO of Tio Gazpacho. “We are continuing the momentum with plans to announce additional retailers in the coming months.”
As Tio Gazpacho quickly expands throughout the East Coast, the chilled soup is now accessible to an even larger audience seeking a better-for-you snack on-the-go, now available in a fresh new watermelon flavor, just in time for summer.
Rosado is the latest addition to the growing lineup, joining the three signature flavors, including Gazpacho Clásico (vine-ripened tomato, green pepper, and cucumber), Gazpacho Verde (kale, spinach, avocado, and mint) and Gazpacho de Sol (yellow tomato, yellow pepper, and carrot).
