The Plucked Salsa Story
Welcome to Plucked Fresh Salsa. We make fresh handmade salsa right here in Maine.
This was not the plan.
There really wasn't a plan I guess, but if there was ever going to be a plan it wasn't to start our own salsa business.
This came out of nowhere.
I began making this salsa years ago when I decided to start a healthier lifestyle. Basically, all of the healthy food that I was making tasted bland. And I wanted something to pair with those foods that would taste great, and would be guilt free.
It was years later, when I had returned to work after maternity leave that I began to get requests to make my salsa.
But, I just didn't have the time!
I was trying to manage working full time, raising a new baby, my husband, and 9 year old step-daughter.
But, friends kept asking.. and ultimately I caved.
I made them my salsa.
And because I constantly take photos and post my entire life on social media, I took a picture of the salsa.
As the orders came rolling in, the idea of leaving my job to stay home with my son and build this business actually became a possibility.
And because of the success that we have had... that possibility became a reality.
I quit my day job in January of 2014, and in just 6 months we have reached over 5000 orders, we're in over 1oo locations and we have been picked up by THREE major distributors in Maine.
To say I am utterly thankful, and proud is not saying enough.
The salsa we make is all natural, naturally low in calories, and packed with tons of flavor. It truly is totally fresh! With no crazy ingredients, and we believe it's just delicious.
We hope you enjoy eating the salsa as much as we have enjoyed creating it!
