Our Story

When our daughter was born in June of 2016, we made had to make a tough decision. Who is going to stay home with our little one? We didn't feel comfortable with childcare and financially it didn't make much sense to basically give up one of our entire income's to have someone else raise our daughter. I had been working in retail for the past 18 years and I was ready for a change.  I love to cook and i've been experimenting with sauces for years. I come from a very diverse background. My father was born in Indonesia and is half Dutch and half Indonesian. My mother is Latin American born in Los Angeles. From a young age i was able to taste flavors from all sides of the family. Now I find myself trying to recreate those flavors from my childhood and create new one's that I can share with my family and friends and pass down to my daughter.  HAB Sauce is a family owned and operated small business. My fiancé and I designed the labels. She's a designer at a very prominent company and also my personal tech. She makes sure my designs are aligned correctly and the layouts are on point. My brother designed the Pineapple Habanero bottle and is currently creating a lot of the future branding. The entire family including Oma and Opa are rolling up their sleeves to help make HAB Sauce a success.  When I'm not making Sauce, you can find me DJing under the pseudonym  Klavical  around town or with bands and artists like  Redray Frazier ,  Mic Crenshaw  and  Dovedriver .  We feel we have created a very delicious and special product. Some flavors are hotter then others, but made to enhance and compliment the food you are pairing it with and not over power it. We hope you enjoy the sauce and follow us along our journey.
