About this project

Azeka's Hawaiian BBQ Sauce
Azeka's Hawaiian BBQ Sauce

Azeka's Hawaiian barbecue sauce is a full premium product that is all-natural, Kosher Certified, and Vegan. Our sauce is made with the freshest ingredients: onions, garlic, ginger, soy sauce, pure Hawaiian cane sugar, and our SECRET INGREDIENTS. Our recipe is based on the world renowned original Maui-Style Barbecue Sauce, created, served, and made popular on Maui for over 50 years.

Azeka's Hawaiian Barbecue Sauce is unlike a typical BBQ sauce. Our sauce offers a sweet, yet savory taste to steak, ribs, chicken, pork, fish, and most anything else! It works great as a dipping sauce, marinade, or even a salad dressing. The chicken and ribs pictured above were marinated in our Azeka's Sauce, making the meat extremely tender, juicy and flavorful.

It all started in 1950 on Maui, Hawaii in Kihei. The demand for the Hawaiian-style ribs marinated in the special sauce became so great that eventually the famous Azeka's Ribs and Snack Shop was opened. This small shop sold as much as 2,000 pounds of ribs per day until its unfortunate closing in 2006. Today we are bringing back the sweet Maui memories for people to enjoy once again. With one taste of Azeka's Sauce you will be transported by it's famous flavor profile to a relaxing day at a Maui beach.

Project Overview

Because of current demand, we are looking to move into a manufacturing space to ramp up the production of our Azeka's Hawaiian Barbecue Sauce. Like us on Facebook! Follow us Instagram!

Funding - What we will do

The goal of our Azeka's Sauce project is $5,000 to start the manufacturing process with a local facility. With a successful funding campaign, we will use the donations to directly start the manufacturing process of Azeka's Sauce. Our project time-frame will end on May 23rd at 9:00pm. If we do not meet our funding goal of $5,000 by the time the project ends, all donations are refunded and no Azeka's Sauce bottles will be manufactured :( Please help us reach our goals and spread the word about our delicious Hawaiian BBQ sauce! :)

Rewards

Our rewards are created to satisfy the loyal fans of Kickstarter. We realize that you are our earliest adopters and want to treat you to an amazing reward. We will be providing a FULL 12oz BOTTLE OF AZEKA'S HAWAIIAN BBQ SAUCE! Unlike some other sauces on Kickstarter where you'll only get a sample 5oz size, you'll get the most bang for your buck with the amount of sauce you'll get from us. We want you to enjoy and share our family's recipe to its fullest!

I want to thank all who are in support of helping to bring back my family's Hawaiian BBQ Sauce! It's an amazing opportunity for me and my family and we are truly blessed to have had such great fans along the way. I appreciate any and all feedback! Thanks and enjoy the Azeka's Sauce!!!

Risks and challenges

Although we do not anticipate any major issues arising, we may face the challenge of getting the word out about our product. This is a common obstacle for any new start up project. That's why we are here on Kickstarter. Spread the word about Azeka's Sauce with your friends and family!

Challenges with shipping may arise. Shipping is often calculated by the weight of the item that is being shipped. Being that Azeka's Sauce is a full-sized premium product, a 12oz glass bottle of sauce weighs over a pound, which causes shipping to be a bit more expensive . We do not anticipate bottle breakage,but we will immediately remedy any problems that may arise.

An issue that could arise is a failure on the manufacturing end of this project. Since we will be moving into a manufacturing space, certain processes are out of our control. Things such as time, sourcing of ingredients, and overall cooperation could fail. This being said, we will make sure that our recipe is fully represented and not compromised in any way; ONLY the best quality product will be produced.
