Reaching this new goal will allow us to double our first production run and get into markets and restaurants much sooner than originally anticipated. Thank you so much to everyone who's supported us on this exciting venture!

Growing up in New York City, we've eaten our fair share of Italian food. Sunday dinners, deli runs.. and "Pizza Night" was almost every night. A big family with seven hungry sons, we were always fighting over that eighth and final slice.
Now we have our own families, and we can eat as much pizza as we'd like, but something seemed to be missing. Maybe it was the nostalgia.. or maybe just a few tastebuds. Whatever it was, we found ourselves putting hot sauce on everything.
There's Sriracha for Asian cuisine, Cholula for everything south of the border, but what about Italian food? How about a legitimate hot sauce made for Italian food? BOOM. "The Original Italian Hot Sauce" was born.
We've spent the last few years perfecting our recipe and jumping through all the necessary hoops to get Italian Hot Sauce ready for market. It's too great an idea and too damn delicious not to share with the world. So, here we are! With your help, we can get The Original Italian Hot Sauce burnin' bright!
Our one of a kind recipe is handcrafted using gorgeous Calabrian chiles, imported straight from the source in Southern Italy. These red beauties are aged on the vine to ensure a rich and earthy flavor with a medium-spicy heat. We add a hint of garlic and herb to create the perfect hot sauce for pizza, subs, and all things Italian food.
Packed with a unique, bold flavor and just the right amount of spice, our hot sauce is the perfect addition to any Italian dish. Buon appetito piccante!
Our ultimate goal is to bring Italian Hot Sauce to every table across America. Your generous pledge will considerably allow us to:
- Import Calabrian chiles directly from Southern Italy in abundant quantities.
- Order bottles, equipment, and ingredients for larger scale productions.
- Produce thousands of bottles of Italian Hot Sauce for commercial sale.
- Develop an impressive online presence and social following.
- Present and contribute to trade shows, local festivals, stores, and restaurants.
Thank you for helping our dreams become a reality! It's been quite an adventure, and we're so excited to share this journey with you. You're going to love our Italian Hot Sauce!
