What is Lola's?
In our family Lola means grandmother. Well, Lola actually happens to be my mother; we've all grown to call her Lola now that we all have kids of our own. Lola is a word that is used by her grand kids when they see her, us as parents, and even close friends. Lola is passionate about family, helping people and cooking delicious food. So here we are sharing what Lola has provided to our family, friends, and neighbors. Her love through a recipe that's fantastic and unique. Something that brings depths of unique flavor and makes anything better, a hot sauce for everyone!
At Lola's Fine Hot Sauce, our mission is to provide a truly unique hot sauce for everyone to enjoy. Our hot sauce is made from the freshest ingredients and contains each of the world's most unique peppers for a delectable experience. Our sauces aren't meant to melt your face off, they're meant to make you feel good and deliver an absolutely delicious flavor!
How it Started.
The story of how Lola's Fine Hot Sauce became a reality is one that comes straight from the heart of my family. A story born in West Des Moines, IA; my inspiration on how to bring Lola's Fine Hot Sauce to life started back in August 2015. My mother entrusted me with her secret hot sauce recipe that she had been making for her close friends and family. It just so happened she had a few of these jars already made. I cracked opened my first jar of her sauce and it was amazing! Something so simple, delicious and truly unique.
I started sharing it with friends and then one day I brought it in for a food day during my full time job. Right then and there was that moment, everybody who tried it said it was amazing and wanted to buy it. After that day the rest was history I decided to start Lola's Fine Hot Sauce to deliver a quality hot sauce that's truly unique and inspiring; essentially a hot sauce for everyone. I went to what was left of every Farmer's Markets in the Des Moines area.
I started selling in the Beaverdale farmers markets and Valley Junction Farmers Markets. By the end of the season I had sold out of all of our bottles! From then and there people started to ask when and where we were going to be next.
