We are of legal age! - said the CHURROMANIA® Team a few days before theanniversary celebration. Among laughter and balloons, we remembered our founder and CEO, Ariel Acosta-Rubio, his wife Maria Alejandra Bravo, and Miguel Bravo, when they opened a Churros and Coffee store in Puerto La Cruz, Anzoategui State, in Venezuela, on that March 21, 1997, which soon developed a cult-like following as long lines of hungry Venezuelan shoppers who waited to secure their delicious churros and the customary rich hot chocolate to indulge in their favourite childhood treat: that is how CHURROMANIA® was born.
It's been 18 years since CHURROMANIA®'s foundation in which it has been rising within the Fast Food and Beverages industry so fast. Today we are counting 28 operating stores in United States and more than 120 around 9 countries in the world.
Currently, CHURROMANIA® is the biggest worldwide Churros franchise, and continues increasing its presence in the United States focusing on the growing hispanic market. In USA, as well as in Bolivia, Colombia, Ecuador, Mexico and Venezuela, it is planning to open more than 15 stores by the end of 2015.
Congratulations CHURROMANIA® Team!

Miami – In the Venezuelan port city of Puerto La Cruz, along the Caribbean coast, three young entrepreneurs were eager to start a business in a key space at their city mall that saw heavy foot traffic. They just could not decide on what exactly to sell.
"It was a very small and tiny location," recalled the head of the business Ariel Acosta-Rubio, who had partnered with his wife Maria Alejandra Bravo and his brother in law Miguel Bravo. "The entire place was 117 square feet."
