Hi friend! Our Story We started making our version of the great sauce of D.C., Mambo sauce (learn more about the origins of Mambo Sauce), in October of 2019. We were using our house-made Mambo sauce in our recipes in our brand new Latin x D.C.-inspired pop-up food business called Pelota. We served fun fare to happy mouths all over D.C. for almost a year, and then COVID-19 hit. We lost all of our pop-ups, catering, and corporate lunch business overnight. We immediately decided that this wasn’t going to stop us. We needed to figure out a way to continue to grow our business and do so in a fun and safe way to reach as many people as possible. Since we had already been producing and bottling Mambo Sauce to use in our recipes and to sell at our pop-ups. So we decided that was the direction we needed to point in. So here we are. We are focused on enhancing your cooking, takeout, and delivery, and dining experiences with the oldest American condiment you've never heard of Mambo Sauce. We have added a super spicy version and my wife's epic bloody mary mixes made with mambo hot sauce, Mambo No. 1. and super fresh sauces made with love right here from our D.C. kitchen.

Our Story

We started making our version of the great sauce of D.C., Mambo sauce (learn more about the origins of Mambo Sauce), in October of 2019. We were using our house-made Mambo sauce in our recipes in our brand new Latin x D.C. inspired pop-up food business called Pelota. We served Latin and D.C. inspired street food and concessions fare to happy mouths all over D.C. for almost a year, and then COVID-19 hit. We lost all of our pop-ups, catering, and corporate lunch business overnight. We immediately decided that this wasn’t going to stop us. We needed to figure out a way to continue to grow our business and do so in a fun and safe way to reach as many people as possible. 

Our Mambo Sauce was created to have a real kick. What  we saw missing in the sauce market was a fresh and versatile condiment that you could actually read  each ingredient ont he label. We got so tired of processed sauces that we find on foods everyday. Our first customers went crazy for the new sauce. It really seemed to make a difference and add a lot of flavor and value to their lives.

Our sauce is a spicy, tangy, smoky, and sweet sauce that you can use as a dip, sauce, or a marinade. We love hearing about how much time it saves our customers having a delicious swiss army knife of sauces in the kitchen. And since it goes so well  on everything, it really brings people together. That's what Sauce City is all about. It's kind of cheesy, but each bottle really is fill with so much personality, flavor and uniqueness. All the very different and amazing ingredients come together to create something truly special.

Thanks for allowing us to share our sauce and our story with you and yours. Be sure to grab a bottle of our sauce and enjoy with all your friends. Mambo No. 1 is on it's way to being the next major condiment in every household, store, and restaurant around the world!
