My name is Luis MartÃnez-ObregÃ³n, I am one of the owners of ZÃ³calo Restaurant in Midtown Atlanta (zocalocreativemex.com), established in 1995. Last year we introduced our salsas and handmade tamales in 18 farmers markets around the Metro Atlanta Area, with sales of approximately 30,000.00 salsas from the month of June to October.
This January we expanded our farmers markets stands in the St. Petersburg (Saturday morning farmers market) where I, personally attend each Saturday and sell around 70-100 salsas, and Tampa bay( Sweet water organic farmers market) Iâ€™m on my 4th Sunday there and already selling aprox. 65 salsas each Sunday.
Also, we have placed our salsas in stores like Star Provisions in Atlanta, Greenlife in Chattanooga, Daily Groceries in Athens and are in the process to be accepted in other stores in the states of Georgia and Florida. We are part of the locallygrown.net system in Georgia, Athenslocallygrown.net, Atlantalocallygrown.net and connyerslocallygrown.net; In South Carolina weâ€™ve been accepted at the upstatesc.locallygrown.net. and in Florida at Gainsvillefarmersfresh.locallygrown.net
We are ZÃ³calo Salsas and we have a variety of Fresh and Unique Products, carefully developed from the menu at ZÃ³calo Restaurant, our family business (which opened its doors for the first time on July 4th, 1995).
Our Salsas are made every day with natural and fresh ingredients. We have a great variety of salsas, all rich in flavor, and each one different from the other, based on their unique ingredients. The peppers in our salsas vary from Three Pepper Blend, Arbol, Morita, Pasilla, Serranos, and others. We feature Mole Rojo, a spicy, rich sauce made with over twenty five natural ingredients which takes several hours to prepare. Mole is the main ingredient in one of Mexico's most traditional meals, "Pollo con Moleâ€� (chicken with mole), which has become a very popular meal in the US.
Our mission is to introduce our salsas as a healthy part of peopleâ€™s every day breakfast, lunch, and dinner while enhancing the flavor of almost every meal. From scrambled eggs with Salsa Verde for breakfast, Chicken Burrito with Mole Rojo, or Mole Verde, and Pasta with Arbol Salsa and sautÃ©ed shrimp for dinner, to hot dogs and pizza with a variety of our salsas to enhance your every day foodâ€™s flavors.
The Salsa Roja and Salsa Verde are available in our 16 ounce containers, the Three Pepper Blend Salsa, Chipotle Salsa, Arbol Salsa, Mole Rojo, and Mole Verde are available in our 8 ounce containers, and the Veggie Pinto Beans are available in our 16 ounce containers.
We love having the opportunity to provide people with authentic and healthy recipes while being able to interact with them and get to know them. We would love to be a part of your community.
