It started with a garden
and a passion for incredible food
It all started with a garden. As fate would have it, the pandemic struck in 2020. During the mandated closures, I started a garden in my backyard, like many of us amidst the extended time spent at home.
Eventually, my hot peppers grew like crazy. Inspiration struck through by my great, close friends and their families from Trinidad and the Caribbean Islands. In the states, we focus on our very vinegar-based liquefied hot sauces. But in the islands, there is pepper sauce and lots of it.
With Florida’s ideal hot pepper growing conditions, a day came when I had so many jalapeño and habanero peppers growing that I almost didn’t know what to do. Of course, I would make a pepper sauce with them.
Kendy’s Pepper Sauce was born. After much experimentation and channeling a Caribbean chef and trial and error, a final product emerged. Today, we’re expanding our sauce line with more diverse offerings of Caribbean, tropical, and Florida-inspired ingredients through each season. But what makes it all keep going is you, thank you.
