Exploring Two Iconic DFW-Founded Food Companies: Fletcher’s Original State Fair Corny Dogs and Mrs. Renfro's Salsa

Renfro-and-Fletchers-logo-graphic It's State Fair time, folks! There couldn't be a better time to talk about Texas food. This month we welcome two speakers whose roots run deep in the DFW food scene, Fletcher's Corny Dogs and Mrs. Renfro's Salsa.

They will discuss the history behind their family businesses and give us some insights into the production of their famous foods.



About the Series

Presented in conjunction with The Center for Texas Studies at TCU, these workshops are aimed at increasing the historical awareness of the community. The series is designed to make the public aware of the important, yet often overlooked historical resources around them, and how to preserve them for posterity. The goal of the workshops is to prove that "every person is a historian," and that they can, by their deeds and actions, preserve a small part of the cultural and historical fabric of this region.


The Center for Texas Studies at TCU is designed to celebrate all that makes Texas distinctive. It is housed in AddRan College of Liberal Arts, where various disciplines and programs can act in concert to foster and nurture the essence of Texas. History is, of course, central, but Texas literature, anthropology, ethnography, politics, religions, philosophy and design and textiles all represent elements that are a part of the incredible mosaic of Texas.
