Just Add Chips Comes to Zanesville
The Wells County Chamber of Commerce staff and Ambassadors welcomed a new business in Zanesville, Just Add Chips, with a ribbon cutting celebration. Just Add Chips is owned by Matt and Cameo Kinsey and is located at 3010 Scott Street.
After working many years at a previous employer Matt Kinsey decided it was time for a change and decided to do something he had a love and passion for. “I came home one evening and told my wife that I am going to start a salsa business,” explained Kinsey. “She thought I was crazy. We started to build the business from the ground up last year and now we have a storefront. We are excited to serve people here locally and the surrounding counties.”
Kinsey was a cook in the military for 17 years and has been experimenting with salsa variations. He then got his family involved and everyone has a part in the business.
There are over 54 variations of salsa Kinsey creates from mild, hot, to extremely hot such as fruit flavored, pickle, chucky, cilantro, and more. All salsas are made fresh daily and change by the season. All products are sugar, dairy and gluten free. The tortilla chips are also freshly made and available in various bag sizes. Kinsey stated they fry up to 5,500 tortillas each week.
“People are pretty overwhelmed when they visit and see the variety of what we have to offer,” stated Kinsey. “There are a lot of flavors in each one and you are welcome to combine to create a new taste.”
Just Add Chips also offers lunch options such as walking tacos, taco salads, hot dogs, and regular tacos. Kinsey’s goal is to continue to add other lunch options as the business grows. As an added service, Kinsey will deliver salsa and lunches for a $2 fee to Bluffton, Decatur, Huntington, Markle, Monroeville, Woodburn, Ossian, Leo, Auburn, and Roanoke areas. Kinsey also provides a 20% discount to businesses for bulk orders.
“There is also online ordering available as well by going to our Facebook page there is a link that will direct you to what we have to offer,” said Kinsey. “Salsa can be purchased from 8 ounces all the way up to 64 ounces. Eventually, I will be able to offer gallon sizes.”
Just Add Chips is open 12pm to 5pm and online ordering anytime.
