825 MAIN Products
Tell us about your business.I have raised a family, ran a restaurant with my husband...and 50 years went by. Life happened and our goals changed so we retired from the restaurant business. But I haven’t stopped being who I grew to be - a food connoisseur! I have this need to share my upbringing. In the midst of our fast paced lives where processed foods take the place of real food for the sake of convenience we forget how delicious real food can really be. I want to show you that it is possible to live with good taste in our fast paced world. In our busy world why do we have to compromise eating healthy and tasty with convenience. All the ingredients in the 825 MAIN Sauces used are non GMO. I strictly adhere to my back to basics rule by bringing you the very best without using any additives. The sauces are also gluten free. Simplicity is the key and only the finest and freshest ingredients are used. Fresh basil from the Hudson Valley and fresh garlic from New York farms are used when in season.
What makes your business stand out?I only use the freshest highest quality ingredients. The sauce is made in small batches and I am all hands on. I am always looking for local ingredients. I will not jeapordize the quality of the product for price. Non GMO and Gluten Free products!
What's the best business advice you've received?You have to believe in yourself and not give up!
