Hotsauce4Good, changing the world one bottle at a time.

trip and bob resized 600
Bob won’t tell you this, but he is a superhero.  His family resides in New Jersey and by all accounts lives a happy life in the suburbs.  Bob and his family are also perpetual “do gooders”.  They don’t sit still and they are not satisfied with the status quo.


About nine months ago we noticed we had a new Twitter follower, HotSauce4Good.  If that name doesn’t spark curiosity nothing will, so we did a little investigating.  It turns out HotSauce4Good had helped fund over 26 microloans with no signs of letting up.  We had to know more.

We flew to New Jersey not knowing exactly what we would find, but when we got there we were completely blown away.  

Bob started a company called Hotsauce4Good out of his house. Then, he started selling his hot sauce and donating all of the proceeds to World Vision Micro and a local food bank, Franciscan Breadline for the Poor.

But he wasn't just selling it, he was selling out of it as fast as his family could make it.  He was growing the peppers in his back yard but couldn’t keep up with production, so he started sourcing peppers and other produce from Norz Hill Farm  and Hillsboro Farm down the road.

His church opened up their commercial kitchen to him so he could increase production  and they regularly have "bottling events" on the weekends staffed by church volunteers.

First off, congratulations to the Seattle Seahawks for making it all the way to the championship! I owe them an especially big thank-you, because now folks at World Vision get to wear their blue and green gear in the weeks leading up to the big game. It’s like two straight work weeks of Casual Friday, which is the best kind of Friday there is.
