Founded by Sergio and Linnaea Mendoza of Sandy Utah, Salsitas Mendoza is quickly becoming a household name. During the 2008 Great Recession, Co-founder Sergio Mendoza found himself without work and in need of extra cash. Linnaea, a medical assistant at the time, turned to making salsas to gift friends and family for Christmas. The salsas were a hit! Before they knew it people were asking for more. Linnaea and Sergio signed up for a small outdoor market to see if people would buy their family’s salsas. They were pleased to see such strong community support. They sold out on the first day. Soon they were signing up for farmers markets across the valley.
Today the line of 16 different salsas, chips, and cooking sauces are available in over 40 grocery stores as well as mercantile’s across our great state. They are very proud to be an active contributor to our local economy and Farmers in Utah! With the support of the community Salsitas Mendoza will continue to provide high quality Authentic Mexican salsas and sauces to dinner tables across the United States for many years to come!
During Utah’s harvest season we partner with local farmers to provide our customers with produce picked at its peak for both freshness and flavor! This partnership provides our customers with the highest quality homestyle, Mexican food on the market as well as a sizable economic boost to Utah’s agricultural businesses.
