The Origin of the Rooster on the Huy Fong Foods Sriracha Bottle


Modern Farmer recently tracked down the origin of the iconic rooster found on the label of the famed Huy Fong Foods sriracha sauce. Modern Farmer reports that the rooster was originally drawn for Huy Fong Foods founder David Tran by an unknown street artist in Vietnam back in the 1970s. Tran later had the rooster updated by a Chinatown artist in California in the 1980s. Tran originally chose the rooster because it is his Chinese zodiac symbol.
