We need your help to build the greatest team there is. There may even be a job in it for you.

Let's create some jobs

Demand for our products has grown faster than we can comfortably deal with. We service the whole of the UK and are making a nuisance of ourselves in mainland Europe and the USA. We’ve got a few local and national awards under our belts too.

But there's a problem. When we say "we", we are referring to one person.

One person making and distributing our products. The same one person carrying out every aspect of running a small business.

Inside the Singularity Lab

We find ourselves selling everything faster than we can make it. We need people to join us so we can meet demand.

And so it’s time to build the team. This comes at a cost in challenging times for small food & drink producers. Creating jobs is frustratingly out of reach for most of us little guys right now. With your help, we can create a good news story in all the doom and gloom and create new opportunities and growth. We really want to tell that story and we can do it with your help.

We are seeking at least one full time member of staff with a view to building a wider team. And we’re ready to make this happen with your help.

What's in it for you?

We’re reaching out to you, our amazing friends and supporters with a range of rewards. We’re offering 1.25x your pledge in store credit. For example, if you pledge £50, you’ll get £62.50 in credit, pledge £100 and get £125 and so on. Credit you can spend on our website or at any event/market you find us at. Credit will be valid for twelve months following the conclusion of the crowdfunder. You can use the credit on bottles of hot sauce and all the merch we’re working on. 

In addition to the credit, we've added a few extra perks based on the level at which you back us. From lifetime discounts to free shipping periods to getting your hands on new products before they launch. We've also bundled in an unreleased t-shirt, available in the size of your choice.

But that’s not all, there may even be a job in this for you.

How will this unfold?

Raising increased levels of funding will unlock more opportunities for us to hire and for us to work with other businesses. 

Hitting our goal will cover the costs of the additional kitchen and packaging equipment/materials. It will also cover our HR costs in doing this right and make sure our facility is equipped for more than one person. We're going to set the groundwork to make sure we look after our people from the off. 

Hitting our target of £18,500 means we can go ahead and make that all important first hire.

We never take your support for granted. We're so grateful for every order. With your help, we can take this next huge step and get it right. 

And if you're keen to flex your work skills in the finest hot sauce lab around, it may be a good time to get in touch :)

Thank you,

Mark
