Like many companies, Chile Media had very humble beginnings. In 2003, CEO, Abram Alonso was eating some peanuts from the peanut factory owned by his extended family in Helotes. The Picosos brand of peanuts sells spicy and culturally unique whole nuts. On the outer label of the can, Abram saw the word “Hot Chile” which inspired the origins of Chile Media.
Years later Abram changed the name to Hot Chile Media knowing that Hot Chile Design could not describe all of the company’s capabilities. For a couple more years, business was done as Hot Chile Media, which had grown to a predominantly print and graphic design operation. By 2007 Hot Chile Media was a distribution point for premium print products and still offered graphic design and imaging service. However, like many businesses, our company matured.
Hot Chile Media evolved and took on the financial interest of investors that helped Chile Media grow to the firm it is today. In 2010 our call sign changed to Chile Media to simplify our name and services. Today we are a marketing and print company that offers a comprehensive menu of advertising print and marketing services and products.
Seventeen years later, we are going strong, and while our diversity has led us to the corporate world and larger companies, we still support small businesses that are starting out just as we once did.
