What is Sauce Shop?

Sauce Shop is a small independent producer of an award-winning range of colourful condiments and hot sauces, made in small batches using no added water, thickeners or stabilisers. The brand prides itself on its fresh taste and clean recipes - real sauce cooked as you would do at home.  

Pam and James founded the Nottingham-based business in 2014, cooking the sauce in their home kitchen and selling it on local markets. Since then the brand has gained nearly 100 wholesale customers and fine-tuned its range to 12 delicious flavours.


 

Where you come in…

We need your help to launch an exciting new product range early next year! The new range will complement our current line-up of 12 sauces.

We would be really grateful to have your support and any pledges you make will help towards:

  • Buying the stock from our manufacturer (estimated cost £3500)
  • Marketing – We love keeping in touch with consumers and businesses on social media, it’s our main point of contact and we need you to help us create an online storm about the new range with a social media advertising campaign (estimated cost £500)
  • Trade Shows – It would be great to launch the new range at a trade show next year, so we would need some new stand graphics and equipment (estimated cost £1000)

 

Why should you support us?

We are a small family run business, making products in the UK. Your pledges will be backing an exciting British brand that is growing every day. 

We have worked hard to establish ourselves as a brand and have been lucky enough to receive two awards this year. Our Sriracha won a Great Taste Award (we are hoping our new product will too!) and we also won the BBC Good Food Show Bursary Award allowing us to appear at this year’s summer show. We are looking to build on this success and use this campaign to increase our presence in more retailers across the country and internationally.

Sauce Shop has come a long way in a couple of years and we are determined to keep developing, so we would be really grateful to have your support for this important step. You’ll get the pleasure of receiving some great rewards and will put big smiles on our faces!


 

Rewards

We have some brilliant rewards lined up for you if you choose to back our campaign. Surprise surprise… You can get your hands on our sauces, with some packaged in our limited edition gift boxes (pictured above). Other rewards include a framed copy of one of our illustrations or a customised apron, and if you’re feeling really generous a bespoke sauce handmade and developed in a flavour of your choice (no gold leaf or caviar...) by our co-founder and sauce mastermind James.

Most of our rewards will be sent out to any UK address at the end of our campaign in December, perfect timing if you want to give them as Christmas presents! (Customised items may take a little longer)

FAQs

Q: Where will the money go if you pass your funding target?

A: If we are lucky enough to have our project over-funded, there are lots of things we could put the money towards, including:

  • In-store Tastings – these would support the launch of our new range and help us get out to our customers and let them try the product before they buy.
  • Consumer Shows – it would be great to get out and show our products to a new audience! Some extra money could be put towards stands at some of the top food shows around the country.

2 week update


Hi everyone!


A BIG thank you to everyone who has pledged to our campaign in the first couple of weeks, It's been nerve-wracking so far but an amazing feeling to know we have such generous supporters, whether friends, family or people we have only just come across!

We printed up an illustration apron (part of our £100 reward) to see how it turned out and it's great! There's still 7 more available and you can choose any of the illustrations from our website. Here's James striking a pose...


We're hoping to pick up some real momentum as we enter these last few weeks of the campaign but we have a long way to go before we reach that £5,000 target so we need your help. Please help us spread the word, telling your friends and family and all those shares on Facebook, Twitter, Instagram, Linkedin etc. really do make a difference so keep at it!

Thank you again for your support.
