LUBBOCK, Texas —On Thursday, October 29, the United Family, the Lubbock Chamber of Commerce and J’s Salsa Company held a ribbon-cutting ceremony to celebrate the beginning of an exclusive partnership between the salsa brand and United Family stores.
From humble beginnings, J’s Salsa Company is very much a family business started right here in Lubbock.
Kelsey Johnson, CEO of J’s Salsa Company, said he is ecstatic about this new partnership with United Supermarkets and Market Street. He said this move will allow them to share their homegrown product with more folks around West Texas.
“It is a great day for our local, homegrown Lubbock business,” Johnson said. “We are so excited to partner exclusively with United Supermarkets and Market Street to sell J’s Salsa. We would love for everyone to come into a store and grab a jar. We know you’re going to love it!”
More than 25-years-old, Johnson said the recipe behind J’s Salsa was perfected by his mother, GayLynn Johnson. He said it was just too good not to share.
“Our family is excited to finally share this with everyone as we have loved it for so long,” Johnson said.
