Today, its possible Gonzalez’s dips could be sold in H-E-B stores across the state through the H-E-B Primo Picks Quest for the Texas Best contest. Gonzalez is one of 25 finalists. She and one other Rio Grande Valley business owner were chosen from 600 entries.
A grand prize winner will be named a “Texas Best” Primo Pick, and three others will win cash and an opportunity to be sold at H-E-B stores.
“I keep pinching myself,” Gonzalez said, adding that she was so excited, “I don’t sleep anymore.”
And she doesn’t expect to get much sleep if she’s named a winner. To get to this point in the competition, candidates had to submit a business plan on how they would meet the demand of each H-E-B. Gonzalez said the winners have 30 days to negotiate with H-E-B and a year to grow into the demand.
