Our Story: A Father, Son Journey
The ChickenFoot is my Dad's idea that sparked a Father, Son journey. My Dad, Dan Urioste, invented the ChickenFoot to stay active despite an injury. The ChickenFoot is a new family chapter. One that thrills us to bring a helpful idea into a classic sport - bocce. Bocce is family.
My Dad and I never worked well together - ever. We always disagreed about how to do the work. From a full bathroom remodel, to installing a Doughboy pool - we did it but, not without grief. So when my Dad came to me with his bocce ball retriever idea, it felt like a good project to prove that we could work well together.
I quickly pulled in my friend Martin Vasquez to help with the design, engineering and production. The three of us brought the original ChickenFoot Classic to the bocce world in 2016 at the US Bocce Federation National Bocce Championships, in Livermore CA.
Three years later, we sold out of the ChickenFoot - People Loved It! And we loved playing bocce with all of you!! We listened to your suggestions and have spent the last few years redesigning the ChickenFoot to bring you our best. We hope you enjoy the ChickenFoot Premiere.
