We are still a tiny company with a small warehouse on one side of town and separate office space on the other. Will, Rose & I spend almost every weekend from April 1st through the end of November on the road, trying to build brand identity.
We started the company in the fall of 2015, using the base for our recipes from Woody Clamlube, our partner out in California. We met Woody at a wedding about four years ago, when he was introducing everyone at the reception to his homemade sauce.
