Most private label clients prefer to not to be mentioned, but both the owners of Schilo’s Delicatessen and Casa Rio have publicly released information regarding Son Beverage Co. private labeling their products.
Our company has manufactured the popular Schilo’s root beer fountain syrup since 1948. The 3rd generation of the Schilo’s family took over the restaurant operation in 1942 and they formed a business relationship with our founder six years later. These two sealed a verbal agreement that our company would produce the root beer fountain syrup for Schilo’s Deli. Bill Lyons contacted our company in 1997 to confirm continuation of this verbal agreement and it is still honored to this day. This root beer has been highlighted in various magazines including Southern Living, Texas Highways and Texas Monthly. Multiple root beer enthusiast websites claim this to be among the best root beer.
In 2003, Tim and Mary received a phone call from the general manager at Casa Rio, the oldest restaurant on the San Antonio Riverwalk, asking if they could create a signature margarita mix. He wanted to create a mix according to their taste specifications. We used our Jell-Craft lemon-lime and lemon gold margarita mixes as our starting point, and asked the management at Casa Rio to sample and critique. We were able to quickly develop a mix to their flavor profile specifications. They have been serving the mix we created exclusively for them since that time. Their margaritas are considered one of the best on the Riverwalk!
