About us


Having spent 30 years in the hotel and restaurant industry Mr. Nelson Mendez (otherwise known as Mr. Cappuccino) founded family and minority-owned RICO FOODS in 2004. Mr. Mendez, who has over 30 years in the Hotel and Restaurant industry, and 13 years in the coffee industry, recognized that commercial coffee service (in shops, restaurants, and offices) and premium coffee vending was an emerging trend with great potential for growth.


Using state of the art automatic Italian espresso coffee & cappuccinos “Bean to Cup” machines, combined with unique European flavors imported straight from Italy,  Mr. Mendez discovered the market potential for this business both in the states and abroad, placing more than 1,000 premium coffee  machines in Venezuela.

Mr. Cappuccino is an SBA-approved franchise with a huge market potential versus a much smaller initial investment than most businesses. As a minority small business owner himself, Mr. Mendez wants to offer the same opportunity that he’s experienced to others. Whether you’re young and starting out, retired with an additional income need, or a minority ready to live the American Dream – this proven business model can help you realize your dreams and your earning potential.
