Fans of the salsa at Jacky’s restaurants now have the convenience of buying it at the grocery store.
Jacky’s introduced the packaged salsa a year ago but stopped production because it was unhappy with the supplier, said Roberto Lopez, who manages the restaurants.
Now, it’s being made by Happy Hydros of Pukwana, which provides some of the tomatoes that Jacky’s uses at its four locations.
“We love to keep it local,” Lopez said.
The Guatemalan-style salsa is being sold in refrigerated cases at Hy-Vee stores and Look’s Market, and Lopez is looking for other retailers.
It’s available only in mild and comes in 16-ounce plastic containers. The salsa has a 75-day shelf life Lopez said.
“We’re working on a hot version and packaging it in jars.”
Jacky’s salsa is available now in the grocery store.
