We had the good fortune of connecting with Jason Higgins and we’ve shared our conversation below.

Hi Jason, what’s the most important thing you’ve done for your children?
I personally think the most important thing I have shown my sons that have impacted them was that no matter where you come from or how much money you have , if you put your mind to it and work your butt off you can achieve it. My oldest son has seen me flat broke with barely anything and work my butt off to be where i am today, on top of moving 1,800 miles away from everything we know and make it happen.

Can you give our readers an introduction to your business? Maybe you can share a bit about what you do and what sets you apart from others?
I moved to AZ from Kentucky back in 2018 and spent all the money to my name to even move here. I started my business a few months before I moved to AZ and had already had couple stores carrying my sauce back home . Lost those customers because they did not want to pay shipping charges. So i decided to become a Door Dash driver out here to get familiar with the landscape and so I could meet potential customers when I picked up food from restaurants, by giving each owner a sample bottle of my sauce when i went in to grab the order. This journey has been very hard and came with a lot of heartache and struggle. I learned along the way and the one advice I always give out now to future entrepreneurs is to not quit there day job until they have at least 6 months to a year worth of money to pay bills and other stuff that you have to pay for in your daily life. I basically want the world to know I put my heart and soul behind my brands and that my passion is to make each person smile every time they try my sauce or food

If you had a friend visiting you, what are some of the local spots you’d want to take them around to?
I would definetly take them to Sedona for a couple of days because it is the prettiest place on this Earth lol, whatever sport season it is , i would take them to a live game. I would try my best to take them to alot of the local favorite restaurants in the Valley for dinner. We would go ATV in the desert in the morning and maybe hiking during sunset .
