A passion for nutritious, natural, delicious food drove DiChickO's peri-peri story from the beginning.
As a native South African, Lucio grew up eating Peri-Peri Chicken, Peri-Peri prawns and anything and everything else you could put Peri-Peri Sauce on and has been a huge fan of it all his life. After moving to America in 1994, He realized that America needed Peri-Peri! Lucio reached deep into his family history and connected with his grandfather Guiseppe still living in Italy. He shared with him and taught him how to make the family recipe Peri-Peri Sauce.
Lucio and his wife, Heather, launched DiChickO's Peri-Peri Sauces in 2005 and are proud to say that they have kept their product true to the original recipe in process and in all-natural, gluten free ingredients. They refuse to cheapen the recipe or to add preservatives and things of that sort. In 2006, they opened a Peri-Peri restaurant in Augusta, GA (called DiChickO's Peri-Peri Cafe).
