Ribbon Cutting | Nitro Salsa | 231 State Street, O’Fallon
Congrats and welcome to the Downtown District!
Nitro Family Foods (AKA Nitro Salsa), located at 231 East State Street in O’Fallon’s Downtown District, had their grand opening and ribbon cutting on May 4th, 2022. The facility recently wrapped up a complete rehabilitation project to convert the location from a vacant dog grooming facility into a state-of-the-art commercial kitchen with a store front.
The owners, Nathan and Nicole Parchman started their food business in 2019 using the Illinois cottage food laws which allows you to cook out of your home kitchen. Due to the Vine Street Market at O’Fallon Station, their popularity among local customers expanded faster than anticipated. They quickly outgrew their home space and began to utilize the VFW’s commercial kitchen in O’Fallon. After less than a year they were to the point they needed to have their own commercial kitchen. With a little visioning and the help from a local architect and contractor they turned a run-down location that had been unused for nearly 3 years into a completely refurbished and thriving location in the heart of O’Fallon.
The Parchmans look forward to growing their business and serving the O’Fallon community for many years to come.
