Salsitas Mendoza is our families silver lining to the recession. We make gourmet all natural salsas for the whole family to enjoy !

Salsitas Mendoza started August of 2011. My husband and I were falling on hard times and struggling to come out on top. In the summer of 2011 I entered a carnival with 3 salsa varieties. My only goal at the time was a new washing machine, and soccer fees for our children. This venture was so unexpectadly successful we entered another. As our popularity grew so did the venues and salsa line. We of course have one vexing problem which is: How we could possibly keep this up under our cottage license in a kitchen too small for even regular family use? As if fate were on our side, a building came up for rent within walking distance of our house. This building left much to the imagination however, as it was in very bad shape. All I could see was the begining of our future,Close to the kids and home. Sergio and I have never turned away from a challenge no matter how crazy and we certainly would not start now. After months of hard work and sacrifice,  our commercial kitchen is about 90% complete. What we need now is a class 1 commercial hood to finish our project and begin what we are sure will be a very successful future for our family. Our salsa line is already in 6 stores, 11 farmers markets and 1 restaurant. The demand is only growing. once we have the hood installed we can begin to sell our line on a much larger scale. Create a few more jobs for our community, and supply other young entrepreneurs a commercial grade kitchen to explore their potential as well.
