Miguel Segura gained a reputation as “the salsa guy” when he handed out jars of his homemade salsa on his sales route.
“Everybody kept trying to buy the salsa from me,” he said.
After COVID-19 led to a layoff, he and wife Lisa Segura (formerly a district manager at a chain jewelry store) turned their hobby into a career.
They started with packaging and selling the salsa, then expanded to more Mexican food, like tamales and tacos. They specialize in the authentic flavors of Jalisco and Michoacan.
They use recipes from Miguel Segura’s mom, who grew up in Michoacan. Miguel’s Salsa operates out of the Clovis Culinary Center.
You can hire them for big catering jobs. You can also find their tent at some Fresno Street Eats events (follow their Facebook page for details).
Or, you can order a couple of tacos for delivery for lunch via their website. That’s where you can buy the salsa too.
Since this is a small operation, meal orders can only be delivered for lunch on Fridays or Sundays. The Seguras do the cooking and the delivery.
Next up? A bright blue food trailer is in the works that will allow them to do even more events. They’re also looking into how to get their products on store shelves.
