Beaumont, TX and Houston, TX  (Food News)  Leo’s Originals Specialty Dressings are known to Jason’s Deli salad fans nationwide, and now the creator, Leo Danna is introducing his flavorful bottled dressing throughout Texas. The dressings are flying off the shelves at HEB and Mandola’s Italian Market as customers are using them as marinades, pasta sauce, dipping sauces and salads dressings.

Leo’s Originals were born out of Leo Danna’s childhood experiences growing up in a close Italian family, and spending time in the kitchen of the family restaurant.  Leo’s love of family and strong Italian heritage led him to create the ‘family original’ salad dressing as a young man.

Leo is hands-on and involved in all aspects of creating the dressings and sauces. “My thing is finding the best combination of flavorful ingredients, and putting a healthy spin on the product,” noted Leo. “I enjoy the fact that customers put these dressings on salads and also use them as marinades.”

About Leo’s Original’s

Leo’s Originals Salad Dressings and Sauces were born in the kitchen of the family-owned restaurant, the Cafe established in 1930 in Beaumont, Texas, and uses the healthiest ingredients without compromising the flavors that make the brand unique.

Leo Danna, started making salad dressing 20 years ago, but his passion for delicious, exquisite flavors originated long before that – it came from the people in the Italian wedding photo that graces all of the Leo’s Originals retail labels.  They are Leo’s parents, Sam and Helen, and some of his many aunts and uncles.

Operating primarily as a handcrafted, small-batch, artisan food service manufacturer since 1995, Leo, his wife Pam and son Seth joined in 2007 to develop Leo’s Originals as a full-line of dressings for the retail market. Their focus on small batch manufacturing lets Leo’s Originals maintain the highest quality, flavor, and ingredients that their customers have come to expect.  Leo’s Originals products are gluten-free, MSG and trans-fat free, and are GO TEXAN products.

Leo’s Originals donates a percentage of the profits to Canines for Disabled Kids, a 501C3 non-profit organization, which works to support the creation of child-canine service dog teams to promote independence and social awareness.
