Our Story

JoMomma’s is named after Jo Ullman, always referred to as JoMomma by all who knew her.

Jo Momma

JoMomma’s Salsa began as a good time salsa that was brought to gatherings to share with good friends along with an ice cold beverage. Throughout the years countless people have tried the salsa and emphatically said “this salsa needs to be sold everywhere!”

Fulfilling a dream

The concept was to work hard with people we cared about and have as much fun as possible.  The decision was made and we have been grinding away with a smile ever since. 


JoMomma’s hits the shelf

We have always valued family and friends and decided to pay tribute to JoMomma because she embodied all the necessary characteristics.  Also, fun is part of our core values and what’s more fun than the name JoMomma?  We are humbled to be surrounded with supportive friends and family and look forward to the future. 

Always Fresh. Original. Never Boring.

Our goal is to provide the highest quality salsa and bring the fun to salsa.  We hope you enjoy our product.
