Maker Story: Big Red’s Hot Sauce is a family-owned craft hot sauce company based out of Phoenix, Arizona. Founder Paul Ford’s journey to hot sauce began with a passion for gardening and cooking for his family, but events in Paul’s life and the importance he places on family are what truly fuel the love behind each batch of Big Red’s Hot Sauce. 

At the age of 13, Paul lost his father, and the responsibility for raising Paul and his brothers fell solely to his mother. For a time, money was low and stress was high for Paul’s family, and outside temptations took Paul further away from his culinary passions. 

Reconnecting with the values of hard work, discipline, and faith that were instilled in Paul by his parents from a young age, Paul found a new path that led him to his now wife and business partner, Tasia.

Paul’s mission in life is to leave behind a legacy for his children and to let people know that no matter the situation, it’s not about how you start, but how you finish. Dreams can become goals and goals can become reality. He carries his love and passion in every bottle while making this world a spicier place, one bottle at a time!
