And that's a wrap

Before I get all gushy about this. Let's take a look at what you all did.

137 absolute HEROES raised: £12,315. That's 107% of our £11,500 target. You actually hit our target in only 12 days, back on the 5th May. And still you came. And still you backed us. All the way until just after 6am this morning when the crowdfunder officially closed.

Thank you. Your faith in us has changed things. It's made me properly realise that you're as much a part of this journey as we are. And we couldn't be on a mad journey with a nicer bunch. Putting ourselves right out there in public, telling the story and asking for your help was an anxiety fuelled rocket launch. I was a wreck until you all turned up and showed me that you like what we're about. You want to be part of this thing and you are. You're stuck with us now.

So what happens next?

We're currently juggling lawyers, a property agent, a surveyor and hopefully our new landlord to secure our new home. The plan is to get in and get the kitchen built. We can work on the rest of the place once we're operational. As soon as we have that operational kitchen, we'll be kicking off all the fermentation required to make the most amount of sass we've ever made. 

Once all our tanks are full and bubbling away, we'll create all the voucher codes and get that lot all tied to your user accounts. If you don't have an account at that point, we'll help you set one up. We'll be in touch as we work our way through that.

If you're on the prototype list, we've ordered the labels for the prototypes and we will work out the schedule for that too. We have loads of ideas that we're going to terrorise you with.

For those of you also coming on our workshops, we'll be in touch to arrange a date once the kitchen is ready for battle.

And for the people making collaboration sauces with us, we'll be in touch a little closer to the kitchen opening. I know you've already got some bangin' ideas and I can't wait to help you realise them.

And because you're basically one of us now, here's some other nuggets, relevant to moving

The business was once again signed off by Environmental Health. It's been a long time through COVID where there were no visits by our EHO. It was reassuring that when they could once again come and see us, that we were awarded a pass with no issues what-so-ever. If we can maintain that level in the home kitchen under those conditions, we have no fear about our processes when we get moved into our lab.

I achieved Level 3 Supervising Food Manufacturing certification. This means we can now have a crew. As soon as is possible, we will start to build a team of ultimate badasses (like in Aliens but without the total likelihood of death).

Once again, thank you :)

Let's make YOUR sauce

Come to our place and make a sauce with us. Choose ingredients, set the heat level and decide what the sauce will be called. You'll then decide what the label looks like.
