About Green Belly Foods: Green Belly started when Juan shared his mother’s traditional Guatemalan hot sauce. Maria del Carmen’s home-made hot sauces instantly became a hit with Juan’s friends. They were blown away by the unique cilantro, garlic and habanero blend. The sauce is so fresh and tasty that Juan was bombarded with requests. Eventually his friends convinced him to start selling at the local farmer’s markets. So he opened up a tent at the market, people loved it and his business has been growing ever since! During that time, he recruited his cousin Charlie to help him with the fledgling business. Charlie’s minor from CU’s Leeds School of Business and his experience with a wine startup came in very handy. When Juan opened the first tent in 2015, they were so new to large scale production that they could hardly keep up with demand. Both cousins had other full-time jobs to juggle, family and kids, but the constant demand for Green Belly showed them they were onto something special.
