Hot Sauce Brings Cold Cash
On a trip to New Mexico, Mary Going tried some food flavored with hot salsa. She fell
in love with hot salsa and anything made with chili peppers. But chili peppers are
scarce in Portland Maine where Mary worked for a computer company, so she bought some
seeds and grew her own chili peppers.
Mary cooked up her own hot sauces and put them on almost everything she ate. She created
a website to share her gardening tips and chili pepper recipes. People quickly found
the website and began sending Mary samples of their own homemade sauces.
The website took off as people began seeking Mary's advice and product recommendations.
She located a distributor of hot sauce products and began taking orders from her
website. Mary made $88,000.00 the first year.
She decided to cut out the distributor and opened a warehouse of her own, stocking it
with 800 different hot sauces. Mary takes orders, packages and ships products, and does
everything herself. It's a lot of work, but she expects to make $200,000.00 this year.
Mary's website, www.firegirl.com
rates hot sauces on a scale from 1 to 10 with some sauces being off the scale hot at
10+++++. You can purchase hot sauce gift certificates that will be sent immediately by
email, or you can buy a gift hot sauces collection. Her site also features many other
products like candy, nuts, and jelly.
Visit Mary's website and you will find hundreds of varieties of hot sauce. That's a lot
of hot sauce. And as Mary Going has learned, hot sauce can bring you a lot of cold cash!
