Food Service Specialties is celebrating 25 years in business. We specialize in preparing and packaging sauces (pasta, BBQ, gravies), spreads, dips, marinades and salsas -- for restaurants, further manufacturing, and the retail grocery industry. Our new and modern manufacturing plant is 100% dedicated to private label production. Our success is in the expert preparation of your products. We pride ourselves on high customer satisfaction, new product development excellence, and visionary expertise in all types of food products and cuisines, food packaging and efficiencies, as well as food safety techniques.
Food Service Specialties was founded in 1985 and is currently celebrating 25 years of bringing premium sauces, dips and dressings to our customers. Originally based in Columbus, Wisconsin, we gained our initial expertise in sauce making by making private-label pizza and pasta sauces for pizza restaurant chains. We discovered an opportunity to supply these chains with fresher, higher quality, and consistent pizza sauces in Cryovac™ pouches. Our success at matching the taste of restaurant sauces while producing a volume product gave our customers with multiple locations the ability to serve the same sauce at every location.
The growth of our customer base in the food service arena naturally led to making retail-size sauces for many of the leading Italian restaurants and chains. These chains recognized an opportunity to expand their customer base by putting their private label on the shelves of their local supermarkets. Today we are producing these sauces for hundreds of chains nationwide, both for the back of the house in their restaurants, and the retail jar on the grocery shelf in their respective communities.
After many years of continuous growth, FSS relocated to Red Wing, Minnesota -- tripling our facility size and expanding our capabilities. To help our customers enhance their business portfolio and reach deeper into the food service and retail grocery markets, we added a retail jarring line that gave us the ability to produce the signature products the industry was looking for. Whether you sell private-label products onsite or off the shelves of grocery and specialty stores, we can show you how to get your flavors into jars with your labels, opening up new profit potential and loyalty-building opportunities for your business -- whatever its size.
