I'm Mark, also known as The Ribman. I've been selling slow cooked ribs from my various markets across London since 2007. A couple of years ago I started making my own hot sauce to put on the ribs. My customers helped me develop a flavour, name the sauce and design a label for the bottle and since then it's popularity has been growing and growing. I sell Holy Fuck sauce (and its hotter variants) from my website and it's found its way onto kitchen tables, restaurant tables, recipes and office workers across the country.
Demand is so high that I need to kick production up a notch to keep up, and that's where I'm asking you to help out. I want to buy a shipping container and convert it into a kitchen and fridge, so I can make and store enough of my sauces to keep you lot, my customers, happy.
In return for your help I've got a load of rewards available, from sauces and hats to Kickstarter exclusives including a Ribman black card which will get you free ribs for a year. If you stump up enough money I'll even come round to your house and cook ribs for all your mates!
Risks and challenges
The only risk for people believing in what I'm doing is that they may have to wait a little for sauce to be made due to high demand , but with investment and a new set up in a kitchen I should be able to make in excess of a thousand bottles a week :))Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
