It’d been one year since I’d moved to the U.S. with my husband Ricardo Rosa, when some of our friends invited us to a birthday party and they asked us to bring some food. We use to love to cook at home , so we made some of our specialty Coxinha a popular food in Brazil consisting of chopped or shredded chicken meat, covered in dough, molded into a shape resembling a chicken leg, battered and fried. We were excited to share our recipe with everyone. And the response was totally overwhelming they literally devoured the whole tray in minutes!
After see how much our friends and their guests loved the coxinhas we decided to create the Petisco Brazuca, first delivery service of Brazilian snacks in the United States.
Since 2013 Petisco Brazuca got big clients as Google, Nike, Michel Kors, Melissa, Samsumg, Yahoo, Chase Bank and others companies. Over the 4 years we hit New York and others states, spreading the delicious coxinha across the country. We did countless trade shows and introduced Petisco Brazuca to thousands of people. It has been hard work, but the support and delight from people everywhere gave us the energy to keep going.
