Today U.S. Sen. David Vitter (R-La.), Chairman of the Senate Committee on Small Business and Entrepreneurship, announced 2 Sisters’ Salsa Company of Plaucheville, La. to be Small Business of the Week, and will be submitting it into the official Congressional Record.

“Family-owned small businesses provide parents a one-of-a-kind opportunity to teach their children the value of hard work and taking risks to pursue your dreams,” said Vitter. “This is especially true for 2 Sisters’ Salsa Company, which started as a kitchen conversation between family friends and has since grown into a successful women-owned venture. Congratulations to 2 Sisters’ Salsa Company for being the Small Business of the Week.”

2 Sisters’ Salsa Company began when family friends, the Deshotels and Bordelons, began occasionally making salsa in their kitchen. They soon realized that their salsa had immense potential, so they began jarring and labeling their product for store shelves. Named after two sets of sisters of the Deshotels and Bordelon families, 2 Sisters’ Salsa Company grew into a family-owned business that recently moved from their home facility to a new warehouse in Plaucheville, La. where they produce 5,000 jars of salsa a day. As the reigning World Champion for the Medium Salsa Category, 2 Sisters’ Salsa can be found in over 100 restaurants and retail locations.

Yesterday, Vitter and Sen. Jeanne Shaheen (D-N.H.), Ranking Member of the Small Business Committee, passed a bipartisan resolution declaring October to be National Women’s Small Business Month. Click here to read more.

As Chairman of the Small Business Committee, Vitter continues the tradition of honoring America’s small businesses.
