San Juan Salsa Co. began in a resident kitchen in Friday Harbor on San Juan Island. In the late 1980's, one of the current partners purchased the "spicy" salsa company. They started with four flavorful salsas that satisfied all taste buds from Mild to Hot, including a Traditional or uncooked variety. After a little fine tuning, the new salsa makers got the recipes just right, except that the "Hot was not hot enough", they were told. Not wanting to disappoint, Afterburner, soon made it to the market.
Today, the four partners of San Juan Salsa Co. continue to prepare top quality, freshly made salsas from our kitchen in Arlington, WA. Salsas that are delicious, nutritious and delivered fresh to your local grocers. San Juan Salsa Co. salsas and tortilla chips are available in Washington and Oregon, our salsas are also available in Idaho and Alaska. As a proud island native, we gladly service Bainbridge, Whidbey, Camano and San Juan Islands.
