We need your help to open a small commercial kitchen to support our growing Hot Sauce and Mobile "Seafood & Sauce Shack" Business!

Our History and Plan for Growth

RickDaddy's has been making Gourmet Hot Sauces since 2006. Our products are made in small batches using only the freshest, finest ingredients available! Our sauces are All Natural, with No Preservatives and No MSG! In the spring of 2012 we started catering to special events with our Seafood & Sauce Shack! All of our menu items have our rub or sauces in them! We created the original "Stone Claw Taco" and also serve Baja Style Tacos, Grilled Fish Nachos, Gumbo, Fish Spread, fresh Gulf Pink Shrimp...hungry yet!? Our goal is to open a small commercial kitchen where we can continue to create and make our sauces as well as prepare our foods for our Seafood & Sauce Shacks! We have selected a nearby location but need to make some improvements in the space.

We have done several events along the Gulf Coast and our "Shack" has been a hit with everyone...little kids and big kids alike! Here are some of our events: Greenfest, Beauty & the Beach, St Pete Grand Prix, Tampa Bay Bluesfest, Oktoberfest, Tampa Food Truck Wars..

My wife Lisa and I started out with just a tent and a folding table! Our dog "Maggie" is our hot pepper puppy! 

Why we need your help.

Opening a commercial kitchen will help us to get closer to our dream of owning our own restaurant. With funding to develop growth we will be able to hire additional workers to help in the kitchen as well as at our events! We have done almost everything needed to take our business to the next level and now we need your support! We started with only 2 products and now have 8 with 4 others ready to be introduced. Our website is up and e store is open!  We have 1 mobile food unit with plans to have another built. We love to cook and share our dishes with everyone! We have a shared commercial kitchen that we rent but it is too far away and the added costs seem to take a lot of the profit. Our cooking method is fairly simple and with the right equipment we can increase our productivity time while decreasing our costs!

The money we raise will be used for:

  • Equipment (stove, hood, grease trap, cookware)
  • Inventory (bottles, labels, shipping boxes, raw materials)
  • Completion of our second trailer

We have some great rewards for the sponsors who contribute! I look forward to you sampling our products and hope to build a long term relationship with you as we continue to follow our dream! Please help us to reach our goal!

Thank you!
