Our Mission is simple:

Creating Papa Solis Salsa Addicts


bringing family and friends together

Frank and Sharyle Solis~ Founders

My parents and the founders of Papa Solis Sauces, Frank and Sharyle Solis, were witnesses to this dream becoming reality.  Since the early 80’s they created so many Papa Solis Salsa addicts, including their children and their grandchildren.  Every fond memory I have with my parents and family cannot be recalled without our signature salsa.  Our hearts always connected around the table, and we know yours will too.

Once friends were introduced to our salsa, they were hooked and pleaded to have our family ship them bottles of it for themselves.  Even after moving to Buena Vista, Colorado in 1994 from Texas;  they wouldn’t leave my parents alone!  So, after many years, they decided to take the plunge and open Papa Solis Sauces in 2005 as an official business.

Gold Rush Days, Buena Vista, CO

Between their day jobs as Accounting and SBA Loan Specialists, Frank and Sharyle would venture into every local restaurant or business seeking to save people from lesser salsas.  With Frank’s charmingly warm personality, and the most addictive salsa it was only a matter of time before it caught fire in the area.  Many local spots and well established restaurants began to carry Papa Solis Salsa and spread the love of flavor and spice.

After the demand grew beyond what they could handle where they were, they took another leap of faith and purchased new property to manufacture Papa Solis, in 2014.  They saw tremendous growth, reaching out to supply various towns in the area such as:  Salida, Jefferson, Denver, Aurora and Lakewood, Colorado.

“Papa” Frank Solis

As we began to flourish, our Papa, Frank, departed this world in March 2016.  It was devastating to the future of the business, but more importantly to his friends, family, and his wife Sharyle.  Another man so loved by those around him would be hard to find.

The decision was made to keep the business open to honor not only his legacy of making everyone around him feel loved, but also the legacy of our signature salsa (“Do the Dance)” which has and will always bring friends and family together.  In 2018, Papa Solis Sauces has found its way back to it birthplace in Texas, where we are currently operating.  Papa Solis Sauces is still family owned and operated; it has just been passed down from one generation to another.  Our mission is still the same every day, spread the love and the Salsa!
