Help Us Bottle The Sweet & Savory Red Sauce!
When we started Saddleback BBQ more than 3 years ago, one of the original recipes that hasn’t changed to this day is our Sweet and Savory Red Sauce. It is by far our most popular sauce. We are always thrilled when people ask us to bottle the sauce so they can have it at home. It’s always been something that we wanted to do, but honestly, we didn’t really know how!
Over the past year we have been learning what it takes to make, bottle, package, distribute, and retail our own BBQ sauces. It has been an incredible journey with several ups and downs. But with your support, we think we are ready to bring our vision to life!
With your help on Kickstarter we will be able to bottle our Sweet & Savory Red Sauce into 12oz bottles that we will be able to sell in our restaurants, online, and to people in retail stores. We hope to have it available in fine local retailers like Merts Meats, Horrocks, Monticello’s, and hopefully many more.
How long will this take? What is left to be done?
With your support we hope to be able to deliver the first batch of sauce to our customers in March of 2019!
We have already completed about 90% of the work needed to bottle our sauce. This includes:
- Shelf stability testing
- Nutrition labeling
- Label design
- Evaluating and selecting a production facility
- Bottle selection
- Pricing negotiations with suppliers
- Shipping and logistics planning
- Amazon planning
- Scale-up procedure
- Barcode/UPC registration
All we have left to do is a final on-site visit to the production facility, final payment, and quality control testing during production!
We Couldn't Do This Without You!
We have been blessed to have the incredible support of our community. That’s why we are boldly featuring “Representing Lansing, MI” proudly on the front of the label. We have put together some Rewards that we think are pretty cool. From getting your own bottle of sauce, to naming one of our sandwiches, to buying the historic Aztec that has delivered thousands of pounds of Saddleback Caterings! We think you’ll love it.
Every dollar you spend with us on Kickstarter helps us get to our goal of bottling and distributing a BBQ sauce that was designed and made popular right here in Lansing, Michigan! We cannot thank you enough for all the support!
Travis Stoliker, Matthew Gillett, Nick Drumm, Drew Piotrowski and the entire Saddleback Family!
Risks and challenges
We hope to have this product ready by March 2019. We are close to meeting this goal but there are many moving parts that could delay us. Please stick with us while we try to get this product to you as quickly as possible.Learn about accountability on Kickstarter
