Entrepreneur Leadership Series: Salsa Queen Zapata

Salsa Queen Zapata (yes, that’s her legal name) started selling salsas in 2014 as a single mother in order to provide for her 7 children. She started generating orders through Facebook and also selling her products a farmers’ markets. Since then, her company has quickly grown into the largest regional producer of fresh, gourmet salsas now sold in more than 1,000 stores across 25+ states. Salsa Queen immigrated to the US from Mexico with her family when she was a teenager and spoke no English. In 2018, she became a US citizen, which is when she legally changed her name to Salsa Queen. She is living proof that the American dream is still alive. One of her proudest accomplishments is helping her 20+ employees provide for their families, like she has done for hers.
