Our story... Chef Matthew Horton's obsession for spicy food has been going on since he was a little boy. The true story is the infamous "Orange Sauce" that comes from San Jose California and Chef Horton's love for this sauce! Chef Matthew Horton since he was 21 has been in love with this one brand and style of hot sauce.  Chef Horton "I used to put this stuff on everything!"...It comes from a company called La Victoria in the heart of downtown San Jose. La Victory's "Orange Sauce" is a well guarded family recipe and has never been given out. Never! They wont tell anyone :( Google the stories or visit Northern California! You can find many, many restaurants creating there very own "Orange Sauce".

So...For the past eight years Chef Horton has been playing around with his own creation! His very own "Orange Sauce"! A sauce full of heat and flavor. Chef Horton's very own version of "Orange Sauce" creamy, tons of flavor, and spicy!

Chef Horton's has finally perfected his very own version of the "Orange Sauce"! Horton's Hot is creamy, savory, garlicky, packed full heat and flavor!  Spicy but not too spicy! Only focusing on the highest quality fresh ingredients and the Chile de arbol pepper! Chef Horton wanted to create a well balanced sauce that you can put on any savory cuisine and he has done just that! 

With the help of now CFO Donald Lopez.  Horton's Hot and the dream of Chef Horton's Chile de arbol hot sauce is now becoming a reality! We just need a little help, a little push to expand our venture. So this amazing product can be shared with everyone, locally and nationally!

Reviews:

From Wikipedia, the free encyclopedia Chile de árbol (Spanish for tree chili) is a small and potent Mexican chili pepper also known a bird's beak chile and rat's tail chile. These chilis are about 5 to 7.5 cm (2.0 to 3.0 in) long, and 0.65 to 1 cm (0.26 to 0.39 in) in diameter. Their heat index is between 15,000 - 30,000 Scoville units. The peppers start out green and turn a bright red color as they mature. Chile de árbol peppers can be found fresh, dried, or powdered. As dried chiles, they are often used to decorate wreaths because they do not lose their red color after dehydration.

Risks and challenges

GOALS:
GOAL 1: $2,500
If we can get to $2,500 then I will be able to put a deposit and all permits and licensing to start a 10 day work days run for 5oz bottle at a local co-packer here in Orange County California
GOAL 2: $10,000
If we can get to $10,000 then we will be able to start a small batch run of our 5 oz woozy bottle at a local co-packer here in Orange County California. So we can supply your favorite “Orange Sauce” to local restaurants.
GOAL 3: $25,000
If we can get to $25,000 then I will be able to purchase all permits and licensing to start a small batch run of our 12 oz bottle at a local co-packer here in Orange County California. So we can supply your favorite “Orange Sauce” to you, because we know that the 5oz bottle doesn’t last. Watching friends eat this sauce is always a great feeling because they don’t just put drops they use half a bottle in one sitting!
GOAL 4: $50,000
If we can get to $50,000 will have the product needed to distribute our fine delicious product all over the Orange county & united states. We want to have our sauce in restaurants, online, in homes, and in fine retail establishments by the end year 2020!

Where we are in our process?
· A corporation has been set up in Orange County CA
· A building & van establish as our go to store front
· Process and production methods have been approved
· All production is done in a commercial kitchen

What do I still need to do?
· Finalize our label and design!
· Various fees need to be paid including barcode and nutrition facts
· Need to find a production facility to increase bottling capacity
What are my goals in the next 24 months?
· Get licensed product out to market
· Expand bottling capacities and production
· Submit sauce to competitions
· Gain shelf space in 200+ retail locations and restaurants
