Success Story Sabor a Baja

Sabor a Baja

Sabor a Baja is an S-Corporation dedicated to the elaboration of authentic Mexican Salsas with six different products, all made with authentic ingredients you can find in the U.S.
Sabor a Baja is a San Diego based company that believes in locally grown ingredients and small batch production.

"I always knew I wanted to start my Salsa Business, but just thinking about it or looking up general information online was overwhelming. One day I ran into the  WBC  website and I signed up for the free consulting program. I got the callback and had an appointment scheduled with Sandra Fernandez right away. After that everything went smoothly. WBC consultants will guide you step by step in your project development. Monthly appointments will give you space and time needed to work on your goals for that period with flexibility. From licensing to finance, you will get the best resources to built a steady baseline for your Business. I’m very thankful  I signed up on their website, a few months after I became the proud owner of a Mexican Salsa Corporation with legal presence Nation Wide." Abril Echavarria, CEO.
