Next Steps For Up & Coming Sauce Company

17 January 2019 - 11:40 PM

Hello, all. My name is Joshua Boggs and I am the owner & founder of Senzu Sauce. I am located in SE KY

 

January 4th 2018 I told myself I would pursue my dream of starting my own hotsauce company. I spent all of 2018 busting my ass to create a product that is shelf worthy (e.g. perfecting my recipe, designing a label, getting all my paperwork, etc.) I have been giving away/selling locally and have a small following , roughly 500 facebook likes and several loyal customers, with new customers coming in regularly; everyone that tries it falls in love with it and I would say that is pretty good. Despite all of this, I am not satisfied with what I am currently doing, probably due to my perfectionism. 

 

I am looking to branch out and I am determined to get this sauce in stores. My question to all of you who have their sauces on the shelves; what needs to be done and how do I do it? Okay, I'll be more specific:

 

1. How did you manage to get the capital needed?

2. Who do I need to talk to?

3. How did you get your costs low enough to acquire a decent profit?

4. How much do you sell the sauce for / how much do the stores sell for?

5. How does the whole co-packing process work?

 

These are just some of the many questions I have. I have absolutely zero knowledge on anything business related. I am (hot) winging this to the fullest extent. But there has to be people to talk to in order to make this happen. All businesses start from the bottom, but I just don't know who to talk to.

 

P.S- I work long & crazy hours, so sometimes I suck at replying

 

Thanks in advance

 

Josh


Rate My Label

Finally starting to sell my product. Curious as to what you all think of my label. Thoughts?

The background (koi fish, lotus flowers) are on a reflective chrome material. It looks stunning when light hits it.

Custom Bottle Caps

I was wondering if there are any places that make custom 5 oz woozy caps? Im looking for a white tobasco cap like in this picture, but I cant seem to find them anywhere.

Nutrition Facts

Will my PA send me a nutrition facts once the testing is complete? If not, how would I get my nutrition facts? My label guy is wanting to know.

Label Size

09 April 2018 - 08:55 PM

I see a lot of posts about labels but my question is slightly different than all the others. Im looking for a label size chart, or anything similar. Im having a hard time choosing what label size I want to go w/. Is there any size that wraps completely around? 75% around? 50% around? Thanks in advance
