Stadium Salsa is a line of delicious, all-natural salsas and tortilla chips made right here in the Toledo Region. Known as the “Official Salsa of the Toledo Mud Hens, “Official Salsa to the Toledo Walleye, “Preferred Salsa to Western Kentucky Athletics”, and the “Official Salsa to the Bowling Green Hot Rods”, Stadium Salsa, LLC was founded during local tailgates. Says Greg Shepherd, “We are a sports family that enjoys tailgating, family get-togethers, etc.…and our ‘go-to’ was also making fresh salsa. We were asked by a small local store if we could make enough for them to sell. Not knowing what we didn’t know, we said, ‘sure.’ Hence, the ‘hobby-gone-wild’ story begins.”
