To the beat of a different drum

Our Story

Hanley's HistoryHanley’s originated in 2012 when Richard and Kate Hanley (been together since 16 years old) discovered that their favorite salad dressing, Sensation® (a staple dressing that originated in Baton Rouge, LA), could only be found in restaurants and in cookbooks — not on the shelves. After a few salad parties, where family and friends voted on their favorite recipe, they brought the winning recipe to the Red Stick Farmer's Market and it has been selling out ever since. Later they teamed up with the LSU AgCenter's Food Incubator to bring their dressing to market fast.

Hanley's all natural salad dressings, Richard and Kate Hanley

Now, Hanley’s is in over 500 retail stores throughout Louisiana, Mississippi, Alabama, Georgia, and Texas — producing over 250k bottles by hand their first 24 months, then scaling to a fully automatic process in the New Orleans area.
