From an uneducated immigrant to founder of a growing salsa empire, Maharba Zapata started Salsa Queen as a single mother to provide for her seven children. She began making salsa in her kitchen with her children as assistants and selling her wares at farmers markets. Today, she has a 3,000 square-foot commercial kitchen, sells her delicious salsas in nearly 100 stores, and now online as well.
Salsa Queen offers five salsa varieties: Gourmet Pico, Red Chili, Roasted Tomatillo, Creamy Jalapeño, and Queso Chipotle. No sugars or preservatives are added and they are also gluten-free. Products are made in small batches to ensure the highest artisan quality.
“When I started Salsa Queen, failure wasn’t an option,” Zapata said. “Four years later, I’m living the American Dream with 40 employees and salsa on shelves in 100 stores. So now we’re joining the growing list of fresh-food delivery brands, offering our unique, fresh flavors to customers via fast two-day shipping.”
These salsas are ideal for any occasion and Maharba demonstrates several creative ways to use them in making fast, healthy and tasty meals at SalsaQueen.com. Salsa Queen now ships a variety of 5-pack options via 2-day FedEx across the U.S. Not only is this ideal for individuals, but businesses are finding this a unique corporate gift solution that is a much healthier option than chocolate, cookies, or candies.
