Savannah Sauce Company, Inc.
The Savannah Sauce Company was founded in 2014 as a "C" Corporation in the State of Georgia. The company wholesales specialty sauces under its Savannah Sauce Company label. The CEO, Tracey Richburg is a U.S. Army Veteran. Richburg was honorably discharged from the Army in 2006 due to a medical disability. The leadership skills acquired in the military prompted her to start a small business. Mike Roberson is the V.P. New Business Development. Roberson's experience is in the area of project management. Roberson is versed with managing multi-million dollar projects and bringing them on schedule and within budget.
The products that Savannah Sauce Company wholesales are all-natural--void of fillers and additives. We found a niche-- the natural food products industry. Savannah Sauce Company was successful in placing its sauces in Brighter Day Health Foods Market, a local health foods retailer in our headquartered city of Savannah, GA . Our signature sauces were received well by consumers. We submitted the sauces to Whole Foods Market. The company and products were vetted and we were permitted entry into the Whole Foods Market South Region. This region is comprised of 46 + stores. We are currently in 44 of these stores, with 20 products on the shelves. The first two products that we strategically chose to fill the shelves are the Home of the Not So Brave But Still Slightly Adventurous Cayenne Hot Sauce and the Land of the Free Chipotle Hot Sauce. As a part of giving back to veterans who had fallen on hard times or suffered a debilitating chronic disability, Richburg decided to give a portion of the profits to these brave men and women who scarified to protect our nation. Whole Foods Market has embraced these products and subsequently welcomed our other products to the shelves in November 2015 (Jalapeno Honey Mustard, Raspberry Chipotle Sauce, Bacon Ketchup and Jalapeno Ketchup).
We expect to have covered the entire Whole Foods Market South Region by November 2017 with expected conservative profits of $477,216.00 for that period. We have plans to move into the Southwest, Mid Atlantic and Northeast regions in early 2017. We anticipate entry into the Fresh Market and Bass Pro Shops in mid 2017
