PROUDLY HANDMADE IN NEW YORK CITY
NO ADDED SUGAR
I was born and raised on Frank's hot sauce in Buffalo, NY, but my real love of spicy foods began in the late 1990s when I moved to NYC. As someone who needs a lot of heat to enjoy meals, I grew bored with store-bought brands or turned off by their ingredients. I started making my original hot sauce recipes in the early 2000s and shared them with friends, family, and fellow hot sauce-loving coworkers. I left my graphic design job and took up freelance gigs while starting to build the brand slowly. We landed a spot at Brooklyn's celebrated Smorgasburg Market in 2013 alongside fellow small-batch entrepreneurs, which became our springboard to shelves in Dean & DeLuca, Whole Foods & more.
Making hot sauce in these small batches reminds me of how my Sicilian grandmother made her sauces; with ingredients like ripe bell peppers, fresh lemon juice, whole garlic cloves, and extra virgin olive oil. I have a passion for creating these recipes and a love for sharing them. We are proud to have many loyal customers and continue to hand-make our sauce in small batches daily. We hope that you enjoy these sauces with your family and friends too!
It is important to us to not only bring you delicious, healthy hot pepper sauces but to leave the smallest footprint possible while doing so. We take steps daily towards being a greener company and will keep you updated on our progress. Beginning in April 2022, one tree is planted for every product sold on our site, thanks to our partnership with Ecologi. We believe in supporting fellow small businesses and giving back to our community. One of our favorite organizations to work with is Hunger Free America, a nonpartisan, national nonprofit group working to enact the policies and programs needed to end domestic hunger and ensure that ALL Americans have sufficient access to nutritious food.
Feel free to contact us with questions, follow us on social media and share your feedback and recipes. Please get in touch with us for wholesale opportunities and special pricing for events. We sincerely appreciate your support.
