Grillo’s was founded in downtown Boston, where Travis Grillo and his friends would sell two spears for one dollar.
Travis would make the pickles by night using an old-school family recipe, the same one he remembers eating every summer as a kid.
Then, in the morning, Travis would bike to the Boston Common and set up the cart with his buddies.
It was a small business, but Travis worked hard for it. He made more pickles, biked more miles, and slept less hours than he ever had before.
Soon, Whole Foods Markets and the Boston Red Sox asked to feature the pickles. Others promptly followed. And today, Grilloʼs Pickles is nationwide.
Even so, not much has changed. At its core, the company is still Travis and friends encouraging folks to try these awesome pickles, just like years ago in the Boston Common.
The pickle itself hasn’t changed either. It’s still garden-fresh, all-natural, and refreshingly delicious, and what some call the best pickle in the world.
