In August, 1974 a restaurant entrepreneur in Rochester, New York founded Sal’s Birdland Restaurants. Sal Nalbone, President and founder of Sal’s Birdland Restaurants, utilizing his many years of restaurant experience decided it was time to fulfill his lifelong dream of opening his own restaurant with a unique concept. After formulating the recipe for his special sauce and seasoning, he served up some of the best chicken and rib dinners in New York State. Since then, Sal’s Birdland Restaurants has grown from Rochester to Syracuse, New York and includes several restaurant licensees that feature Sal’s Birdland-style chicken wings and seasoned potato wedges. Syracuse University is among the licensees in upstate New York.Several years later and after many customer requests, Sal began bottling Sal’s Sassy Sauce for retail sale, later developing other sauce products to establish what is now known as Sal’s Family of Fine Sauces for retail and foodservice users. The popularity of Sal’s Sassy Sauce has grown over the years and we now have a mail order customer list that includes the United States, Hawaii and Canada.
