Meet Flex of Flex Eatss
Flex Eatss started backed in 2019 originally I was just doing food reviews for restaurants which was cool but after awhile I realized I needed something of my own so sauce came to mind. I chose to do sauce because it’s literally the soul of the meal plus who doesn’t love an amazing sauce with their food? I put the sauce idea together in 1 week honestly, I hit the kitchen & started to get creative mixing spices and different flavors to see how I can shock people’s palate & I came up with my vegan Sweet & Savory sauce. I’m not vegan but I wanted to be inclusive to everyone so I made sure it was versatile so everyone could try it. I got where I am today by HUSTLE honestly. I had a BBQ for Memorial Day and got some amazing feedback so I already knew I had a golden egg. After the BBQ I needed to find a way to market my sauce so I studied & watched other food brands, listen to podcasts, read marketing books and also networked with other sauceprenuers like @jupiterringsky he has his own vegan buffalo sauce. With all this new Information I knew I couldn’t fail so I started selling wing plates at events in order to build a demand for my sauce & things started picking up for me! People loved the wings & sauce so much I got a buzz around my name, fast forward a year and now I’m trying to have my own events & get my sauce in multiple grocery stores in around the US.
It definitely hasn’t been an easy path the amount of times I’ve gotten told “no” or just never got replies would discourage most people but it fueled me to go harder. The hardest part till this day is getting my sauce on menus in different restaurants don’t get wrong the sauce is fire but some people don’t like giving chances or are really picky about their menu. Soon enough I’ll be everywhere this is only the beginning .
My company is known for my Sauce, I have a Vegan Sweet & Savory Sauce and I also have a Honey Lemon Pepper one as well the flavors of both are amazing I honestly don’t think there’s anything like it on the shelf. Im most proud of my company for being 100% black owned & being able to bring happiness to peoples food. What sets me apart is that I love whatI do, passion & love go into every batch that I make & it shows plus who you know got the sauce like me ?
To me success is being able to see how far you’ve come & appreciate every moment along the way, I’ll know I’m successful when I’m able to employ people & be able to hire some employees and have the power to fine back to the black community. If you’re waking up everyday & have passion for what you do plus your able to make a living from it? That’s success it’s not always about having the most money it’s about happiness.
