As the makers of Sriracha battle to stay open in California, legislators from Texas are wooing the makers of the chili sauce to move to the Lone Star State.
Texas state Rep. Jason Villalba is leading the delegation meeting Monday with David Tran, head of Huy Fong Foods, which makes the famous red sauce with the trademark rooster logo, in Irwindale, California. The delegation will make its pitch while touring the factory where Sriracha is produced.
"I'm a huge fan of the product," Villalba told USA TODAY Network. "When I saw there was a possibility I would not be able to put Sriracha on my eggs, believe me, we got into action."
