History of the Churro

Churros likely originated in Spain or Portugal before gaining popularity across Latin America.

In the 1970’s, Gerald B. Shreiber purchased and transformed a struggling pretzel company. Known today as J&J Snack Foods, the company has a broad product offering with more than $1 billion in annual sales. Churros, a J&J Snack Foods’ product, has quickly gained notoriety as a reliable, high-quality product manufactured in the U.S.
