Diana with her Madre, whose family recipes have inspired the business.
Owner & Founder
Diana Loomis founded Hot Mama’s Salsa, Inc. in 2003 after settling in Bozeman, Montana with her family. Having grown up outside of Chicago, Diana remembers cooking alongside her Madre and Abuelita, learning how to prepare their family’s multi-generational recipes. Inspired by her Grandmother’s salsa recipes, Diana’s love of cooking and passion for her family’s authentic Mexican cuisine became a recipe for success.
Hot Mama’s produces small batches of fresh salsa, distributing to several local grocery stores, commercial grocers, caterers and restaurants in The Pacific Northwest including Montana, Idaho and Washington. She and her staff offer breakfast burritos, take n’ bake enchiladas (veggie or carnivore), homemade ancho chipotle dips, fresh pico de’ gallo and guacamole from her commercial kitchen. “Oh, and the virgin pina colada mix is the best you’ll ever taste. Our foods are a true Mexican delight!” laughs Diana. “This is where my creative side fully comes out.”
“People can tell when their food is made with love,” Diana believes. Hot Mama’s hand-selects their ingredients, buys from local businesses whenever possible, and takes special care when making their fresh salsas and entrees. You’ll also see a member of Hot Mama’s team personally delivering salsa to the grocery every day. “Paying attention to details is a key ingredient to my food and my business.”
Diana is a big-hearted supporter of the Bozeman community, because its culture offers so many opportunities for small businesses, individuals, and families. Through her business, she enjoys helping individuals with a desire to learn entreupenurship giving guidance to their process. “It’s very important to take good care of each other”, she states. "Everyone is equally important, we all have a story that deserves to be heard." Diana’s positive, inspiring energy and passion for life nurtures our hearts and tantalizes our taste buds like only the best Mama can.
