At the heart of Salamida's history is the story of Rob Salamida, who began cooking spiedies on a charcoal grill to earn money for college when he was only 16 years old. After successfully running a concession stand at the New York State Fair, Rob realized the growing popularity of spiedies and sought to bring the delicious flavor to homes with his own marinade sauce.

Starting with a small operation in his parent's basement, Rob filled each bottle of his Salamida Original State Fair Spiedie Sauce by hand, combining his special blend of herbs and spices, vinegars, and vegetable oil. Over time, he won over local grocery stores, expanding his distribution from the trunk of his car to tractor-trailers carrying his sauce to various locations
