Mama's Fire soon to be the Sauce of Salem!

I woke up to a phone call from my operations director this morning.  His message instructed me to get a copy of today’s local Salem, Oregon paper, the Statesman Journal.  He was so excited and I must admit he had a very good reason.  You see the sauce was written up in the local Salem newspaper the and it was a great piece!

So, I woke up, got dressed and went to my drive though coffee shop Espresso Road, the oldest drive through coffee shop in Salem, (which by the way, has agreed to use the hot sauce on their eggs and breakfast sandwiches) were the owner Erin and I got to experience the article together for the first time.  It took up 3/4 of a page on the first page of the Life section.  There was a beautiful picture of the Tibetan BBQ pork and another picture of the sauces on the shelf at LifeSource Natural Foods!

Here is the link so may all read the article in full, “Locally made BBQ sauce is a hit!”

Enjoy the sauce Salem, we love you!

Mama’s Fire has a Billboard!

Wow! it is real, Mama's Fire has a Bill board!

I want to share with you all the extraordinary experience of seeing a billboard with my sauce and logo on it for the first time.

I must admit I have been looking forward to this reality for about nine months.  The idea of this billboard came to me with the auspicious coincidence of Venti’s Taphouse moving into the old BBQ resturant right accross the street from LifeSource Natural Foods.  It was like a lightening bolt in my mind as I drove by the two businesses, who have both been such strong supports for Mama’s Fire Gourmet Sauce and the Sacred Works Project, “Try it at Venti’s, Buy it at LifeSource.” That was the tag line that ran through my head and then I noticed it, right between the two businesses was a billboard.  Could it be possible that I could share the message and advertise in that way.  It seems as I write these words that it is very possible indeed.  It has been done!

It was a risk for sure.  I have put the last of the business backing into advertising, to formally announce to the world that Mama’s Fire Gourmet Sauce is for sale.  And now it is up to you all.  If you want it, buy it.  I have done my job and brought it to you, my hope of course is that you enjoy it as much as I do, buy it and tell a friend to do the same and it will be in your life for many years to come.

So here is the tale, I knew the sign was up as my right hand man Clint had shown me the picture earlier in the day but that did not take away from the experience.  I took my wife and son down to the sign.  I wish you all could have seen the expression on my six year old son’s face when he saw the sign, his words were, “Dad, I am totally freaking out here, that is you sauce on the sign.”  It made me feel like such a good father to give him that memory, here is a picture of him with the sign soon after those words.

"Dad that's your sauce on the billboard, I am totally freaking out back here!"

He looks a bit overwhelmed, I know I was, it was like I was awake in a dream.  Excitement, hope for success, dreams coming true all these come close to describing my emotions but I think my son said it best, “I am totally freaking out back here.”

So if you are in Salem, Oregon please….
