Saltamontes Salsa

Some people leave Buffalo for Hollywood, but here’s a story of someone who left Hollywood for Buffalo! Ron “Grasshopper” Glatzhofer was born and raised in Hollywood and worked for over twenty years in the entertainment business, first as a roadie and eventually worked his way up to tour manager for many musical groups. He has worked for many notable groups starting with the Parliament Funkadelics, and all the way to Aerosmith. In 1988, when Ron came to Buffalo as a tour manager for Rick James, he met his future wife while staying at the Holiday Inn on Delaware Avenue. She was the director of sales at the hotel, and they now reside in Angola where Ron, after retiring from the road, turned to his other love, cooking.

Since Ron is a native of the West Coast, southwestern foods, hot sauces and chili based foods have been his specialty. After working at several south town restaurants, Ron decided to go into business for himself marketing his most requested item, his signature salsa. Saltamontes in Spanish means grasshopper, which has been Ron’s nickname since he was a child by those who could not pronounce Glatzhofer.  Ron’s first opportunity to sell his salsa was at Ralph Wilson Stadium for the 2003 Bills season. Ron sells his signature salsa, as well as pico de gallo, home-style chips and much more at the Elmwood-Bidwell Farmers Market every Saturday.
