Jose Madrid Salsa (UPZS) "The Healthy Fundraiser" Launches Franchising Program

PITTSBURGH, Pa., April 10, 2018 (GLOBE NEWSWIRE) -- via OTC PR WIRE--Unique Foods Corporation (UPZS) announces its wholly owned subsidiary Jose Madrid Salsa "The Healthy Fundraiser" for the first time in its 30 years, will actively begin seeking & selling protected territories to motivated & qualified franchisees to become registered distributors of their Award Winning Jose Madrid Salsas. This new Distribution agreement will grant qualified individuals or groups the exclusive right to distribute 30+ Unique hand crafted Jose Madrid Salsas in a defined protected area through retail outlets, fundraisers and trade shows. JMS is looking to expand throughout the US & Canada.

Jose Madrid Salsa will be working with their parent company, Unique Foods Corp's

PR Agency Brewer Media & Entertainment Group, to launch an extensive nationwide search for motivated individuals and groups who want to experience a career selling and promoting a superior product that has a very Unique & exclusive growth potential in the extremely underutilized industry of "Healthy Fundraising". JMS will use its 30 years of industry leading methods and its Internationally Award Winning Salsas to teach their future franchisee's how to acquire fundraising opportunities, place the products into key area retail locations and how to succeed at regional trade shows. JMS is looking for highly motivated stay at home parents or semi retired people looking for a primary or secondary family income, sales people who are sick of trying to sell a subpar and unwanted products or a select few who are looking to have a highly successful and rewarding career selling and promoting quality healthy products that they can take pride in.

When most organizations need to raise funds for a specific sport, charity, church, club or cause they turn to the overpriced & unhealthy chocolate or popcorn fundraisers. These fundraisers are readily available anywhere and usually require the group to purchase the unhealthy products up front. All of the sports organizations participating in the fundraisers promote a healthy lifestyle every time they get together but when it comes time to raise the much needed monies to allow their programs to prosper, they use and promote unhealthy choices. At Jose Madrid Salsa "The Healthy Fundraiser": your group is able to easily download and print your fundraising forms online; raise the monies your organization desperately needs upfront with no out of pocket funds; keep an industry leading 50% of all the monies raised; sell a healthy and appreciated product at normal retail prices instead of the unhealthy & extremely overinflated retail priced chocolate's & popcorn.

Mike Zakany, Founder & President of Jose Madrid Salsa said: "I take extreme personal pride in our hand crafted salsas that I have perfected over my many years. One of the most rewarding things in my life is when a group sends me a note or email telling me how grateful they are to use JMS to raise the monies their organization desperately needed. Over my 30 years in the salsa business JMS has helped tens of thousands of groups raise their much needed funds by selling our salsa and it's exciting to see how many new organizations we get every week! We have many big shows and fundraisers coming up every week and we invite our customers to visit our Twitter page, @MadridSalsa to receive daily updates."

About Jose Madrid Salsa Company

In 1976, Mike Zakany and his brother started a restaurant in downtown Zanesville, Ohio. After months of planning and building, Zak's Restaurant was a reality. The contemporary casual restaurant was a welcome addition to the small urban center and was quite successful from the family matriarch, helped her sons integrate more authentic Mexican cuisine into the menu and life of the restaurant. 

The Zakany family has always had a rich history as entrepreneurs. Mike's paternal grandparents opened a butcher shop and grocery store in Zanesville in 1942. Mike's father, uncle and entire family worked very hard to continue to grow the family business over the years. Zak's Restaurant was a natural extension of the Zakany's involvement and love for the food business. The restaurant quickly developed a strong clientele. Clearly, people liked the "New Mexico" style food, the phenomenal increase in the "to go" food sales and the additional increase in dining room business confirmed their niche in the "New Mexico" style of food on the menu. The demand for salsa was a key part of the complete menu; salsa enhanced the flavors of all the dishes served. It then became time to develop the salsa to meet the demand. Mike started an extensive marketing study that examined all kinds of spices and chili peppers. He read with great interest about the migration patterns of the European Spaniards to Mexico and the influence America's native people had on the newcomer's cuisine.

Mike continued to work on the salsa recipes based on his research and experimentation. The restaurant customers were the critics for the salsa formulas born from Mike's hard work in the kitchen.  Eventually, the "favorite" blend of spices, chili peppers and herbs were developed. These recipes came from the direct influence of his maternal grandfathers cooking culture. In 1987, Jos Madrid Salsa became a reality, named after the family icon and beloved grandfather from Clovis, New Mexico. Mike Zakany's tribute to his grandfather celebrates his childhood memories of the larger than life man. 

He could ride a horse and shoot a gun better than anyone else in the unsettled New Mexico Territory of the early 1900's. Jos was the reason the family rallied together for summer vacations and reunions in Clovis, and the perfect namesake for the unique New Mexico style of salsa. Jos Madrid Salsa made its first sales in gourmet and grocery stores during the Christmas season of 1988. The legend of Jos Madrid lives on and continues to grow with a line of 30+ different salsas and more in development.
