Grinders Signature Hot Sauces 2013 Wrap Up

Hello Vendors, Friends & Fans,

2013 was a great year, and 2014 is shaping up the same way!
Grinders Signature Hot Sauces has made huge strides in the past year. We have entered multiple retail & grocery stores throughout the Kansas City market and across the United States, including select Consentino’s Price Chopper Markets, Sunfresh and Hy-Vee stores. We have also been in contact with a national chain of organic markets; we hope to be displaying our sauces on their shelves very soon.
See our “Where to Buy” tab on our Facebook page for a store near you!

We kicked off our tradeshow and hot sauce festivals debut at the Houston Hot Sauce Festival 2013 by taking home 1st place in the Hottest Sauce and Ghost Pepper categories for Death Nectar, while our Molten took home 2nd place in Wing Sauce.

Grinders Signature Hot Sauces recently became a multi-category winner of The Hot Pepper Awards, announced at the end of December.
Winning Categories included:
• Wimpy (Mild) and Molten (Medium) won 1st place for wing sauce, while Death Nectar (X Hot) took 2nd place.
• Grinders Signature Hot Sauce Line won the Picasso Pepper Award (Best Labels and Artwork).

• Wimpy sauce tied for 25th Place in the Louisiana Style Hot Sauce Competition.

Wrapping up our year of awards were the Scovie Awards, we won 4 awards out of 864 entries and 151 companies.
• Wimpy sauce won two 1st place awards, one for Wing Sauce-Traditional-Mild/Medium and Best Product Label.
• Near Death and Banana Rat Wing (BRW) sauces picked up the 1st and 3rd place awards in the Most Outrageous Label category.

For our annual charity donation we have chosen Wounded Warrior Project as this year’s recipient for a percentage of our sales of Banana Rat Wing Sauce. We continue to support our troops year round through events and entertainment with the Messlords.
