My name is Eric Borland and I am the co-owner of a gourmet hot sauce company called Red Robot Hot Sauce. We just joined your blog for the Zest Fest and are looking forward to January, our first year participating as a vendor at the festival.
We make a roasted, red jalapeno-based sauce using all natural ingredients. We really concentrate on making a sauce with a great mixture of flavor and heat and our growth as a company over a short period of time shows that people love it as much as we do! We are currently in 22 retail locations around the Atlanta-area as well as 2 restaurants and a couple specialty food websites.
After a year of getting through the certifications, process approvals, roadblocks and learning experiences along the way we were finally ready to legally sell to the public in November 2012. In just a year, we've grown quickly, adding customers on a weekly basis. With our production now handled by a co-packer, we are able to focus our time on sales. The Zest Fest is going to be a great opportunity for us to meet and talk with key distributors, producers and customers. Again, we are really looking forward to the festival and I love the blog about the festival to get the hype started! Thanks again.Best Regards,
