Hobbies really can turn into viable businesses, as Jake Newcomb of Portland has proven by transforming his love of making hot sauce on the side to a full-fledged business called Newks Hot Sauce.
Having been laid off during the pandemic from his job as a sound engineer, Jake launched a Newks Kickstarter campaign, securing enough funding within 24 hours to launch his company to make hot sauces.
Over the course of just two years, Newks Hot Sauce has become one of the Portland area’s most popular hot sauces and now can be found in stores across the country, including Market of Choice.
Newks Hot Sauces are vegan and made from all natural ingredients. Each is well-balanced and features fantastic flavor and spices.
“You’ll find yourself reaching for them often to add an extra kick to your favorite foods,” Jake says.
For mild to medium heat, try Smokey Chipotle. For a sweet medium heat, reach for Elderfire Mango. If you like it VERY hot, take your taste buds to the next level with Newks Hot Pepper Sauce.
All Newks Hot Sauces are versatile and go great with many foods, such as pizza, tacos, breakfast sandwiches and eggs, soups, chilis. They even mix well in cocktails, adding sensational spice to martinis, margaritas and bloody Marys. Try Newks Hot Sauces for that kick you’ve been craving!
