CHICAGO--(BUSINESS WIRE)--Award-winning producer of Mexican cheese, chorizo, and crema, V&V Supremo® Foods, Inc., is declaring September 25th National Quesadilla Day, offering consumers a variety of ways to enjoy authentic quesadillas made with Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese while continuing its focus on supporting the local community.
According to a recent survey conducted by the brand, one in three Americans are making quesadillas on a weekly basis. However, even though 57% of Americans believe authentic Mexican cheese is the most important component of a delicious quesadilla, many are using inauthentic cheese blends.* To make a truly authentic Mexican quesadilla, V&V Supremo® invites consumers to use Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese, a traditional Mexican melting cheese made with real ingredients and taste that has been crafted over generations.
In honor of the new national holiday, which falls during National Hispanic Heritage Month, V&V Supremo® is reinforcing its commitment to the community. For every photo of a quesadilla made with Chihuahua® Brand Quesadilla Cheese shared on social media, tagging @vvsupremo and using #NationalQuesadillaDay, the company will donate $1 to the United Neighborhood Organization (UNO), a Chicago non-profit empowering the Hispanic community.**
“The quesadilla is an amazing symbol for the American ‘melting pot.’ This country is a blend of cultures and it’s exciting to see a traditional Mexican dish like the quesadilla become such an American standard,” said Gilberto Villaseñor II, Chief Visionary Officer and one of V&V Supremo®’s second-generation owners. “We want to celebrate the way the quesadilla brings cultures together, all while honoring our Mexican heritage and the Latino community.”
For those living in the company’s hometown of Chicago, V&V Supremo® is also offering a number of National Quesadilla Day events on September 25th. A branded food truck will be touring around the city, offering free authentic quesadillas made with Chihuahua® Brand Cheese at select locations here. Consumers can also elect to visit a number of Chicago-based participating restaurants offering quesadilla specials featuring Chihuahua® Brand Cheese. By sharing their experiences at the food truck or participating restaurants via social media, tagging @vvsupremo and using #NationalQuesadillaDay, they will also activate a $1 donation to UNO**.
