Love the name of your hot sauce brand?

Stop! Before you go too far...

If you're trying to make a commercial business with your hot sauce, you really should trademark your name.

Listen to our fun and educational podcast interviewing four hot sauce makers and trademark attorney about their journeys trademarking their hot sauce brand.

Want to sell your hot sauce to stores?

Selling your hot sauce across state lines and into stores requires certifications and education about food safety and regulations. While these regulations vary state to state and certainly country to country, Craic Sauce shared their journey of getting their wholesale license in Massachusetts.

The Always Flavored name was born from the definition of the word “always”, which is defined as “at all times; on all occasions”, and “flavored”, defined as “having a particular distinctive quality”. Food is such an essential part of our daily life that I believe every meal should be a distinct quality experience.
